Chemist Direct aims to continue to focus on patient safety. We support the self-management of short-term conditions, however, there may be times when we restrict or cancel purchases.
Sales for over-the-counter medicines are closely monitored. Over-the-counter medicines can be divided into General Sales List (GSL) medicines or Pharmacy (P) medicines.

Please be advised that your order will be ‘suspended’ until questionnaire responses are reviewed, and the pharmacist is satisfied with your purchase.

If you have purchased a sedative item, an interval of one month is required before a second purchase of a sedative item is allowed.
