Questions & Answers[edit]

Do German online pharmacies ship for free? [edit]

If your order contains a drug with a prescription then shipping is always free, even when you add some additional products that do not need a prescription.

However, you must send the original prescription by postal mail to the online pharmacy.

How can I find the medication I need? [edit]

The Pharmazentralnummer (PZN) is a unique identifier for medical products in Germany. Every medical product in Germany has its own. Its printed on the packaging.

Most online pharmacies allow you to search also via the number. So if you want to be sure to buy the exact medication, just enter its PZN.

How am I protected from ordering meds that don't work together (contraindication)? [edit]

There is also one big benefit of constantly ordering your meds only at one of the pharmacies, Docmorris[2]: They can record all your orders at them.[3] And If one of your new orders contains a drug that does not work well with a previous drug you ordered (i.e. has a contraindication), Docmorris will warn you before shipping.
