Got an Urgent Health Concern? Here's Where to Head

If you need a prescription refilled immediately or are looking for over-the-counter medications to alleviate the flu or a headache, forget about finding a corner drugstore in Paris: they simply don't exist. In France, only pharmacies are permitted to sell most over-the-counter medicines and remedies. And unlike many supermarkets in North America, French counterparts almost never have in-store pharmacies.  

To spot a pharmacy while walking around the city look for a flashing green cross above the door. And if you need one in the middle of the night or at an odd hour, consult this guide to Paris pharmacies open late or 24 hours a day.
