Health & Pharmacies
For most medication, you have the option of either obtaining prescription or non-prescription (over-the counter) when purchasing medication along with medical expert advice at all pharmacies in Montenegro. However, it is highly recommended that you first collect a doctor’s prescription for medication regarding the type of medicine and dosage when sending it to the pharmacy.
Typically, the pharmacies’ working hours are Monday through Friday 8:00AM to 4:00 PM and usually half of the schedule (until 1:00PM) on Saturdays. Nevertheless, there are pharmacies operating longer hours (typically from 8:00AM to 8:00PM), and are usually located near hospitals or health centers, or certain pharmacies open 24/7 based on municipalities they cover.
