Online pharmacies

Internet pharmacies are often much less expensive than brick-and-mortar ones – and can also deliver for free. This overview compares prices and shipping costs.

Medicine can be something valuable these days – be it either the pills you already need to take regularly and want to stock up, or be it some painkillers or anti-flu drugs that might soften your Corona experience.

Instead of going down to a crowded local pharmacy, you can also get your meds delivered home. I was amazed myself how cheap I could score various drugs – like Paracetamol for €0.98 at the Medpex online pharmacy.

Another benefit is their much wider range of products – often reaching more 250,000 items! So you can be sure to find the meds that you need, and also their cheaper counterparts.

So I’ve checked many more of them – and here is the compared result.

Prescription? Free shipping!

They all share one feature: If your order contains at least one item that needs a prescription then the whole order is free of shipping costs!

For example, you may order an antibiotic that your doctor gave you a prescription for, and then add some painkillers to the order, and get the whole package with no added fee.

What you must know: They need the original prescription. So you need to mail it to them in a regular envelope, usually adding you customer or order number.

Wir sprechen Deutsch

Unfortunately, none of the online pharmacies has an English interface. 🙁 But that shouldn’t be too much of a problem: Simply fill your basket, add your address, pay and order.

I’m thinking about making an online video tutorial for ordering at one of the pharmacies – let me know in the comments which one you like most.

Comparison table

It certainly pays off to compare prices, as they can differ more than 50%. I’ve compared two popular meds: the painkiller Paracetamol, and the anti-allergen Mometahexal.
