Information about how to find your nearest 24 hour pharmacy in Brazil and dental procedures...


There are many pharmacies/chemists in Brazil and most sell a wide range of over-the-counter products and prescription medicines. Pharmacists in Brazil can often recommend medicines and prescribe treatments. Drugs such as antibiotics cannot be given without a prescription but certain pain killers may be sold without a prescription.

The People's Pharmacy (Farmácia Popular) is a health initiative that provides free or low-cost prescription medication to low-income residents. These are distributed through public health clinics or via programs implemented in privately-owned pharmacies.

There are many 24-hour pharmacies in São Paulo that also deliver medicines on request.

Dental procedures

Brazil has many qualified dentists that offer dental services at relatively reasonable rates, thus making Brazil a popular destination for elective dental procedures such as dental implants, veneers and laser whitening.
