How It Works

How does the Superdrug Online Doctor work?

Learn more about how our service works

With over 900 stores across the Republic of Ireland and the UK, Superdrug is a household name you can trust. Your prescription will be issued by one of our doctors who are registered with and regulated by the Irish Medical Council and can legally prescribe for our customers in Ireland. All our prescriptions can be dispensed at any Irish pharmacy.

You can interact with our online doctors in 3 easy steps. Place an order using our online assessment form, where our doctors will review your submission. If you are suitable for treatment, we will then send your prescription or test kit to your house, office or any other address in Ireland. Alternatively, we can send your prescription to your nearest pharmacy digitally for fast and easy collection when it suits you.
