Strange query - is this cholesterol reducing table available over the counter in PB?

Should I bring my prescription and any idea of the price (for this or the generic ones)?

Hi
Lipitor or to give it its generic name Atorvastatin is available in Spain.....and as it is not an antibiotic should be available over the counter(it certainly is available on-line here)......however, it is like all statins in Spain ,quite expensive...the prices I have quoted here are on-line prices for the generic versión, but will give you a guide to the cost in your local farmacia.(which may be slightly more expensive)
10mg X 30 Tablet =40€ approx.
20mg X 30 Tablet = 54€ approx.
40mg X 30 Tablet = 73€ approx.
I would advise bringing your prescription as farmacias are no longer as keen to sell to non-residents as they used to be.
Hope this helps.

Since I'm on high strength Fluvostatins, I'm glad I'm in the health system, where they cost me about €16 for 28.
