We consistently prioritize patient safety and actively support the self-management of short-term conditions. Our over-the-counter medicines fall into two classifications: General Sales List (GSL) medicines or Pharmacy (P) medicines, with close monitoring of sales in both categories. Despite not requiring a prescription, we, as a responsible pharmacy, ask questions when customers purchase Pharmacy medicines.
Upon submitting your order, it will be temporarily "suspended" until our UK-based Pharmacists review the questionnaire responses and ensure satisfaction with your purchase. Additional questions may be necessary before processing your order. Please note that we reserve the right to limit, restrict, or cancel purchases as deemed necessary.
In our commitment to safeguarding our patients, we implement restrictions on the sale of products containing the following ingredients: • Paracetamol • Ibuprofen • Aspirin • Codeine • Dihydrocodeine • Promethazine • Dextromethorphan • Pseudoephedrine • Ephedrine • Bisacodyl • Loperamide • Cinnarizine • Clemastine • Chlorphenamine • Cyproheptadine These measures are in place to ensure responsible and safe usage of these ingredients.

We adhere to legal requirements that impose restrictions on the sale of specific items, including paracetamol, aspirin, codeine, dihydrocodeine, pseudoephedrine, and ephedrine. This is not only to comply with the law but also to prioritise patient safety by preventing the sale of medicines associated with misuse and abuse.
Our commitment extends to ensuring that patients receive an appropriate amount of medication, discouraging unnecessary accumulation. Additionally, we advocate for patients to seek guidance from healthcare professionals if issues persist or recur. The cautious use of over-the-counter medication is crucial to avoid masking underlying health concerns during prolonged usage. Your well-being is our foremost concern, and we encourage responsible and informed healthcare decisions.
