Painkillers in Swedish Supermarkets by Autumn

Published fredag 20 februari 2009 kl 14.12

Prescription free drugs will soon be sold in regular supermarkets in Sweden – but not without a strict set of rules for shop owners. Göran Hägglund, minister for Health and Social Affairs, writes in an article in the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter on Friday that this -the fourth step of the governments’ pharmacy reform-  will require both age limits and display regulations from the shops.

By the beginning of November shops will be able to sell products such as painkillers and decongestant nasal sprays. The range of products sold in super markets will have to be approved by the Swedish Medical Products Agency, but the selection of approved products will be left to the discretion of shop owners.

Currently the only place where you can buy aspirin and other painkillers in Sweden is in the 900 government owned pharmacies.
