Where to buy Viagra over the counter in Hong Kong – some drug stores!

According to the official information of the Drug Office of the Department of Health of the Hong Kong government, the drugs in this administrative region of China are divided into 3 subgroups:

  • Only Prescription Medications, which can be bought only if prescription has obtained before.
  • Only Pharmacy Medications, which require licensed specialist’s presence and his/her supervision while making a purchase. However, prescription is not necessary.
  • Over-the-counter Medications, which are divided into two groups: “Not a Poison” and Part 2 poison. So called “Not a Poison” drugs can be openly bought directly from pharmacy, which is Licensed Poisons Distributor, drug store (there is a list of such sellers) and premises, which don’t have appropriate license. Concerning Part 2 poison, you can buy them only from a drugstore or a medicament store.

Drugs sold by prescription in Hong Kong

In general, if a particular medication is prescription remedy in most countries in the world, you will have to obtain prescription for buying this drug in Hong Kong too. Nevertheless, there are some exceptions here, when you can find some drug over the counter in spite of the fact that prescription is required abroad. It concerns contraceptive pills, for instance. Many countries prohibit buying it over the counter, but in Hong Kong such drugs can be legally bought without visiting doctor previously. Almost all medications, for purchasing which you have to get prescription, are offered in Hong Kong pharmacies. However, they can be named otherwise. That is why, ask about the name of chemical formula of the drug, not its brand name, if you want to find desirable medication. To double check, have a look at the English list of a drug’s components printed on the package.

There are two common ways of obtaining prescription: directly from your doctor or at the public hospital. The latter way is rather cheap (the charge will cost less than 10 HKD). Visiting private doctor is more expensive. You can get refurbishment if you are supplied with private health insurance.

According to information on the site of the Drug Office, sildenafil-based drugs (sildenafil is the main component of Viagra) are in the category “Prescription only Medicines”. However, on the Geoexpat forum one user wrote the following information: “The answer is, yes, in Hong Kong you can buy Viagra over the counter.”

Other user said that he has bought huge package of Viagra (20 boxes) for more than affordable price (8 dollars per tablet) and other drugs, including Doxocyline, Zovirax for his female partner, Amoxicillin etc. in Fanda, located in Hong Kong, Tsim Sha Tsui street. In addition, you can type “Fanda pharmacy near me” in searching engine and find out where these drugstores are located. They can offer Viagra without a prescription. You can also find online chemist’s shops in Hong Kong selling the drug as OTC remedy.

Thus, some pharmacies in Hong Kong sell Viagra over the counter, but they seem to be doing it illegally.
