Pharmacist Only Medications

    These are sold under the discretion of a Pharmacist and supply may be limited to what the Pharmacist decides is best for the patient. Health Chemist will not be held responsible for orders that are declined for health reasons and will not be liable for orders that are declined for any other purpose.
