Default Canadian prescription drugs

Would a Canadian prescription be recognised by an Irish pharmacist, does anyone know?

If they google the address they should realise it is Canadian.

I don't think they'd need to Google it. It says "Toronto General Hospital" on the top.

I don't think so. I've had trouble for a Dubai prescription in Amsterdam before. But sure, give it a last and see what happens.

6. I have a prescription written by a doctor in a country outside of the EEA. Can I have it dispensed in Ireland?

Prescriptions written by prescribers outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) are not legally valid in Ireland and pharmacists are not allowed to dispense them.

If there is medicine that you need that has been prescribed by a doctor or other healthcare practitioner who is not registered in an EEA country, you should make an appointment with an Irish registered doctor to review your medicines, your condition and provide appropriate advice.

Dutch pharmacists do not consider a 50 lash flailing as an appropriate treatment for the clap, tuba bah.

No.

Outside EU/EEA. Not recognised.

Proper order too.
