Opening times vary for the different pharmacies in Luxembourg, but they are generally open from Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 6pm and closed between midday and 2pm. Some pharmacies are also open on Saturday mornings.

Prescriptions for medicine should be filled by the deadline on the prescription or if there is not one then within 3 months of being issued. For other prescriptions (X rays, blood tests etc.), please see the Caisse Nationale de Santé website.

All prescriptions for medicine which has to be taken for a duration of equal or above 6 months will not be issued in one go by the pharmacy. The chemist will make you a copy of the prescription that you will take back to the pharmacy when you return to fill the remainder of the prescription.

Note: partially used medicine can be taken back to the pharmacy or the doctor to be destroyed.

In the event of an allergy or side effects towards a medicine you can return any unopened boxes to the pharmacy where you bought it and get a refund.
