Buying Medicine

In Korea, pharmacies are separated from clinics and hospitals, and doctors do not dispense medicines. For certain types of medicine, a prescription from the doctor is required. Thus when one is feeling unwell, a visit to the doctor’s office is needed in order to obtain the necessary prescription. For minor symptoms such as headaches, indigestion, or other general disorders, over the counter medicine is available directly from the pharmacist. Unlike in many other countries, over the counter medicines are not available in convenience stores or grocery stores.
