Are common prescription medications available in Vienna?

Answer this Question

When we asked expats in Vienna if common prescription medications are available in Vienna, they wrote...

"The pharmacies are virtually on every other block, and my Dr. is across the street from me. I go to the the doctor every other month to get my prescriptions filled (15 medications) and the co-payments are always under 5 Euro. Most medications have to go through the doctor. The overall experience is good and I have no complaints," wrote a member who made the move to Vienna, Austria.

"Yes, common prescription medications are available in Vienna. You can find them at local pharmacies, known as "Apotheke," which are widespread throughout the city. These pharmacies carry a wide range of medications, including those for chronic conditions, pain relief, and antibiotics. To obtain prescription medications, you will need a valid prescription from a licensed medical professional. Some pharmacies also offer over-the-counter medications and health products. It is important to note that pharmacies in Vienna may have limited operating hours, and a few designated pharmacies provide 24-hour services for emergencies," explained one expat living in Vienna, Austria.
