Do You Need a Prescription to Buy Antibiotics in Greece?

  • When in Greece, are you able to go to a pharmacy and buy antibiotics directly, or is it a requirement to have a doctor's prescription before acquiring them?

  • And the answer is... sometimes. In an effort to stop the widespread use of antibiotics that could lead to super germs, some types of antibiotics requires a doctor's note to get them. But in general, antibiotics are available over the counter at a pharmacy without a prescription. So for most cases, you are all set.
