Pharmacy-Strength Medicines

Because Express Chemist is an online pharmacy, we are allowed to supply pharmacy-strength medicines.

Pharmacy medicines come in a number of different categories including:
  • P medicines (Pharmacy Medicines) are only available from pharmacies. Pharmacies are allowed to sell P medicines under the supervision of a pharmacist. The pharmacist is responsible for making sure that the medicine is suitable for you. You can buy P medicines online from Express Chemist. When you add a P medicine to your basket, we ask a set of questions about your condition. Once you place your order, your order is reviewed by a pharmacist just to double-check that it is safe for you to take the medicine.
  • Prescription-only medicines or POMs are generally even stronger than P medicines or are considered too risky for pharmacists to sell without a doctor's prescription.
  • GSL, or general sale list, medicines are available in many places, including supermarkets and garages.
  • Unlicensed medicines are not covered by the regulatory authorities and can generally be sold anywhere, although they are not allowed to make any medical claims.
P medicines and Prescription-only medicines are considered "pharmacy-strength", whereas GSL and unlicenced medicines are not. Pharmacy-strength medicines can only be supplied from pharmacies, under the supervision of a pharmacist. Of course, Express Chemist satisfies these conditions, and so can supply pharmacy-strength medicines to you.

Pharmacy-strength medicines have to go through extensive clinical trials before they can be sold to the public. In particular, any medical claims need to be backed up by the clinical trials, and the medicines also need to be tested for their safety. Side-effects must be assessed, and if there are significant side-effects then the medicine will not be approved.

In short, pharmacy-medicines (P-medicines) can only be licensed for sale if they work and are safe.
