Prescription Drugs

See a doctor

Our GPs can prescribe medication for a range of medical conditions

In your online video consultation, the GP will discuss your condition, and where appropriate write you a prescription.

Prescription drugs need to be signed off by a doctor before they're dispensed.

Medication prices can differ, depending on the medication in question and whereabouts in the country you live.

To help you get to grips with just some of the prescribed medication our GPs may give you, we've put together a prescription drugs list with details on each medication, what it can treat and how it works.


What we can't prescribe

Our highest priority is to provide safe care to our patients. This means that we are unable to prescribe certain medications, including;

  • Controlled medication, such as strong painkillers, anxiolytics, sedatives and hypnotics
  • Medication that requires specialist prescribing and monitoring
  • Medication that needs to be administered by injection (with the exception of life-saving or life-preserving purposes)

Some common medications we get asked about, that we can’t prescribe, includes:

  • Diazepam
  • Tramadol
  • Gabapentin
  • Pregabalin
  • Zopiclone
  • Codeine
  • Sleeping tablets
  • PEP (Post Exposure Prophylaxis for HIV treatment)

Our doctors will always have your best interest in mind and recommend the treatment that they think is the most suitable. Please note that all our prescriptions are issued at the consulting doctor's discretion.
