    • Can I get all medication at A3 Apotheke?

      You can order all German medication at A3 Apotheke, just like in your own pharmacies. You can also order all Dutch medication. We can deliver all prescribed medication.

      All medication (also prescribed) can be found using the search function (search product) on the website.

    • Why is the amount of medication sometimes restricted?

      As a Dutch pharmacy, we take our pharmaceutical responsibility and your safety very seriously. This is why we have limited the order amounts of some medication. A lot of medicines can lead to health problems or death after overdosing. Please check if continuous usage or prescription free articles can indicate illness that requires medical treatment.

      If you need more medication (or larger amounts) due to special circumstances, always contact us.

    • How do I find a prescription-free product on the website of A3 Apotheke?

      Prescription products cannot be displayed in a category structure due to legal reasons. They can only be found using the search function (with / without prescription).

      Enter the name or PZN of the product and press search. The PZN can also be found on the packaging of the product (if you have it).

    • What is the difference between original medication and generic medication?

      There should not be a difference. You have no doubt heard that dangerous copies of medication is being offered on the internet. Please assured: our website is supported by a pharmacist and a fully responsible team. You are guaranteed to receive original medication. Generic is also original. As you might know, the patents of manufacturers on an active substance expire after an amount of time. This means that every pharmaceutical company can sell this active substance, which often leads to price drops. This most well known generic products are aspirin and ibuprofen.

    • What does PZN mean?

      PZN is the abbreviation of Pharma-Zentral-Nummer. Each medicine has an own unique number, which can distinguish between package size and dosage. The Dutch medicines do not have a PZN.

      • Creditcard (Visa, Mastercard and Maestro)

      Of course, we do not add any extra costs for any of these methods!


    • Is my prescription valid?
      1. A prescription needs to be signed by the doctor.
      2. The date of birth of the patient needs to be indicated.
      3. A prescription is 6 months, after written out by a doctor, valid. The date of prescription needs to be indicated by the doctor.
      4. Besides the name of the product, or the active substance, the strength and method of application need to indicated.

      If one of these 4 criteria is not met, the prescription needs to be adjusted or fixed by the doctor (before you send the prescription).

    • In which instances do I need to send a prescription?

      We need an original prescription for each product that legally requires it. Exceptions are repeat-orders of the anti conception pill and Nuvaring. You will only need to mail in an original prescription once for these products.

      All products requiring a prescription are easily recognisable on our website. These products ALWAYS need an original prescription.

      The exceptions are the anti conception pill and the Nuvaring. This product only requires a prescription for the first order. Simply said: if you within 12 months after your last order, order the same anti conception pill (or Nuvaring), or an anti conception pill with the same active substance, the original prescription acts as a repeat-prescription and we do not need a new prescription.

      An example:
      You order the anti conception pill Microgynon 30 for 3 months on 1 January. This order is used up after 3 months (1 April). If you order the Microgynon 30 (or a pill with the same active substance) before 1 April next year, we do not need a new prescription. This is the case for 5 years.

      In the next cases, we will always need a new prescription:

      • if you order a different anti conception pill
      • if you order the same pill (or Nuvaring) too late


    • Do I need to send my prescription by mail?

      Yes, you always need to send your prescription by mail. The A3 Apotheke can only deliver products if we have received a valid original prescription. A prescription by fax or email is not possible.

    • Can I also hand in prescriptions?

      We will also accept prescription orders. Always try to order your medication using our website. And then send us your original prescription by mail.

      Our post address:

      A3 Apotheke
      c/o Wehrstrasse 10
      46399 Bocholt

    • What happens if a prescription gets lost in the mail?

      From experience, this hardly ever happens. If this does occur however, you can always ask your doctor to write a replacement prescription.

      We cannot be held responsible for the loss of your prescription.

    • How long are prescriptions valid?

      Prescriptions are valid for 6 months after the doctor has last prescribed it. We can no longer accept your prescription after this. It is possible that your doctor can write a new prescription.

      Already stamped prescriptions (for example, by another pharmacy) can also be handed in at us, if they are not older than 1 year.

    • Can I hand in a prescription?

      Yes, we accept all original prescriptions. A prescription is valid for 6 months after the date of prescription.


    • Can I return ordered medication?

      A sweater, which does not fit, can be exchanged. A present you do not like can be exchanged for a voucher, if the salesperson is kind. These products can be sold again.

      If you decide after delivery that you no longer need the medication, you cannot return it. Pharmacies in the Netherlands are legally prevented from selling returned medication again. This legal regulation is because of the accountability, no-one can guarantee that the returned medication still adheres to the strict demands. Besides, no-one wants to take any medication if someone else has already had it. The only thing we can do with returned medication is properly disposing of it.

      Adhering to the European Guideline 97/7/EG and the Dutch Civil Code, article 46d book 7, is it NOT possible to return ordered medication.

      Do not send us any products without paid delivery - we will need to charge you the extra costs of EU 25,-.
