Over the counter (OTC) medicines can be purchased from pharmacies and pharmacy outlets. Click here for opening hours and addresses for pharmacies across the country.
The selection of OTC medicines is more restricted in the Faroe Islands than in the UK and in the US. Ask for the generic name of the medicine, e.g. paracetamol instead of Tylenol®. The pharmacy staff are always happy to be of assistance with regard to medicine-related questions.
