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

"Most drugs are easily available at pharmacies that are dotted everywhere. Most antibiotics can be bought over the counter, at a cost much less than in Europe," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Bali, Indonesia.

"Yes, common prescription medications are available in Indonesia. Most medications are available over the counter at pharmacies, although some require a prescription from a doctor. The Indonesian government regulates the sale of prescription medications, and all medications must be approved by the Ministry of Health before they can be sold. In addition, the government has implemented a system of price controls to ensure that medications are affordable for all citizens," commented one expat who made the move to Indonesia.
