View Full Version : France 1985: a doctor's access to prescription drugs

This is a bit off the wall, and unless somebody here lived in France in the 1980s, I may have to do some real legwork. :)

I have a scene in which an injured character ends up at the house of a doctor in a small village--for security reasons he cannot go to a hospital--and he needs several prescription meds. The doctor, who runs a clinic locally, is willing to help.

However, I'm not familiar enough with French pharmacy/drug laws to know: would the doctor have antibiotics and pain meds accessible at the clinic? Or would he have to write an order/go to a pharmacy to get them?

Thanks to anyone who can help. :)
