Modalert in Greece

How to be prepared for a trip to Greece or Cyprus

If you have chronic diseases or you often use the same type of drugs (from a headache, stomach, etc.), you will need to find original instructions and write out the International  brand  name of medicine and the international name (in Latin words).

A drugstore in Greek language is called Φαρμακείο, φαρμακευτική, φαρμακείον — generally pharma-at the beginning of the word and any international images symbolizing medical care — a snake with a bowl, a red or green cross.

The most important for me was to not miss Modalert in Greece. Thankfully it is called in Latin words, you will see it in the list below.

Every time you visit a Greek pharmacy and talk to greec pharmacist, I advise you to simply show a proper drug name  in the list of drugs. You will understand each other quicker that way.

If medicine has no translation in Greek language, it means you need to show the Latin name of a medicine.
