SLEEPING TABLETS AND TRANQUILIZERS
Why are these prescriptions so expensive?
Since the medical profession has become concerned over the excess prescriptions of these addictive medicines in the past, doctors in most European countries are trying to reduce their use. As this began to change here we the Dutch doctors on the Costa del Sol, noticed a significant increase in the demand for these prescriptions. As the Spanish authorities became more alert to the problem and in order to support this well-intentioned attitude of our colleagues, we decided to introduce a high price as a deterrent. It has worked, as people now tend to remember to bring these medicines prescribed by their regular doctors, when they come to Spain.
Spain has many pharmacies. On almost every street corner you will find a ‘farmacia’, recognisable by the green cross. In case of illness during your holiday it is not advisable to go and buy medication at the pharmacy in the hope of getting better. The pharmacist abroad does not know your medical history, which medication you might already be taking and whether they can be taken together with the ones you are purchasing. In the Farmacia you will never be asked about previous medical conditions. They will always try and sell you something which could have serious consequences. Also, your health insurance back home might not reimburse medication which has been purchased in Spain without a prescription.
