Hi we will be moving to Spain early next year and need some advice about obtaining prescription tablets while here. For the first year we will be doing the touristy thing of 6 months and then coming back to the uk while we sort out the residency. Now here is the issue. I suffer from high blood pressure and have a doctors repeat prescription in the uk for a months supply at a time. My doctor will not prescribe for the 6 months so I need some help on obtaining the Spanish equivalent. I understand I will have to pay for the prescriptions but do I need to register with a doctor for the time I am here or do I just get the tablets posted out to me from the uk for the sake of ease? We have NIE numbers and own our Spanish home outright but am worrying about how long it might take to become residents. Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Kev..

Hi Kevin.

Thank you for the information. I was not sure if the Pharmacies would dispense that sort of stuff. Most helpful.

Regards,

Kev.

Hi Kev, are you aware that you can only stay 90 days in 180, there must be a break when you are not in europe for 90 days; 90 in then 90 out. If you have the name of the prescription meds you can buy the spanish equivalent over the counter in the chemist.

Good luck 

Sue
