Pharmacy in Spain

Post by dsd » Wed 07 Aug 2019 09:36

Hi
can anyone tell me the whereabouts of a fairly large pharmacy in Spain, not too far from the border if possible, please?
My step-mother has asked me to get her some HRT without prescription; she lived in Spain until recently and assures me that the pharmacies in the south used to sell it to her, no problem.
Many thanks in advance for any help you can give

There is a pharmacy in La Jonquera, it isn't large but has always had anything we needed in stock.It is in the back street that runs parallel with the route national. Other than that there are several larger ones in Figueras.

Thank you for the reply. I know the one you're taking about but as she wants several packets, I was hoping to find a bigger one with more stock. I suppose I can always ask them to order more. Must admit I don't really want to go to Figueras

use Google maps

In the maps search bar
type in your chosen Spanish town name
press enter
type farmacia in the search bar
You should see farmacias displayed on the map

(this works in Maps for hotels, restaurants etc)

Thank you Kenny but I just went to Figueras yesterday where there are 3 pharmacies on the map but in fact 8 or 9 once you get there! Visited 8 of them to get what I was asked to, due to stock problems. They indeed have no qualms about selling prescription medecine without a prescription, if that info can help anyone in the future.
The one in La Jonquera didn't have any and couldn't order any as the products were not on their suppliers list. It was a pain to have to do the trip in August, with the heat and the tourists/traffic but out of season it's an easy run.
