Hi, I have arrived in Spain and have left 2 of my medications at home… I have the repeat prescription saying what medication I take. Is it possible to get a weeks supply as this medication cannot be missed. 

Thanks

Just a message to anyone that requires this information. I had my repeat prescription form with me and I had no problem getting a weeks supply of my medication from a pharmacia. I was told by one pharmacist that the medication was no longer available in Spain. The medication was codeine I am on a 30mg dose for arthritis and in Spain they do 29.7mg don’t ask me why? The pharmacy had no issues once I showed them my repeat prescription but they did want to keep it as I understood this to insure I didn’t travel to multiple pharmacias and obtaining more than I needed. I had no issues with this and had a lovely holiday 😄
