Paris Pharmacie/Medicine Question

Jump to last reply

During a six-week visit to France in the Spring, I need to use a dental rinse, Chlorhexidine Gluconate (non-generic name = Peridex), twice a day. That would require bringing six, 16 ounce bottles from the US, which seems impractical even with checked luggage, and except for needing that med, we would bring only carry-ons. It is a prescription med in the US.

Questions:

How can I find out if it is even available in France?

If it is, how can I find out whether a French prescription is needed to buy it?

Can someone reply with the email address for a (ideally Paris) pharmacie to which I can ask those questions in English in the event no one reading this knows the answers?

Thanks for any help.
