The availability of medication in Denmark depends on whether the medication has been prescribed by a doctor or whether you can buy it over the counter. Prescription medication can only be purchased at a pharmacy on producing a doctor’s or dentist’s prescription.
It is possible to receive some degree of reimbursement on most purchases of prescription medication. The more money you spend on prescribed medicine, the more reimbursement you get from the Danish National Health Service. For further details regarding conditions and rates of reimbursement, have a look at the Danish Medicines Agency website.
Over-the-counter medication is readily available at pharmacies, in some supermarkets, kiosks, drug stores and petrol stations.
