Hi There,

I dont think the chemists have websites as they operate from primative looking little shops, but they provide a good service,

Most prescription drugs can easily be obtained at virtually all chemists throughout Goa. However, they are usually sold under different generic names and you will have to take the box that your drugs were supplied in. From this the pharmacist will be able to supply you with Indian equivalent, usually with no problems and without prescription. If the chemist does by any chance question you, all you have to say is that you have run out. We have only been asked once and normally stock up on all our prescription drugs on our annual visits, which saves a small fortune compared with NHS prices.
