What Prescription Strength Medication is Available Over The Counter?

May 16, 2024 NHS Medications


Here at Simply Meds Online, we are dedicated to helping our customers manage their health and well-being easily and affordably. We understand the frustrations involved in trying to get a GP appointment (the NHS is a wonderful institution but is vastly overstretched). We know that shopping around physically or queuing for prescriptions isn’t ideal for those who are busy, or have other needs that make this difficult. To make things easier, Simply Meds Online now offer prescription-strength over-the-counter medications and treatments, shipped directly to your door.


By offering a range of over-the-counter medications we improve accessibility and reduce the time you wait to start feeling relief. Our growing range of over-the-counter medications can be ordered without a doctor's prescription. 


4 Benefits of Prescription Strength Over-the-Counter Remedies

These are just a few benefits of ordering prescription-strength over-the-counter medications online with Simply Meds.


1. Convenience

One of the main advantages of over-the-counter medications is convenience. Instead of scheduling a doctor's appointment (which can be difficult) and potentially waiting days or weeks for a slot, you can easily order with us online and have your medications shipped quickly and discreetly to your door.


2. You Save Time

With over-the-counter remedies, there's no need to take time off work or rearrange your schedule to fit in a medical appointment. No waiting in lengthy pharmacy queues either. You can address your health needs quicker and get back to your daily routine.

3. Cost-effective

Often, over-the-counter medications are more affordable than their prescription alternatives. This makes choosing prescription-strength OTC medication from Simply Meds Online the budget-friendly option.

4. You Stay in Control

 Over-the-counter remedies put you in control of your healthcare. You can make informed decisions about which products are best suited to your needs and preferences. This can be particularly helpful when you’ve had a medication before and are having a flare-up/reoccurrence of the same issue.


Over-The-Counter Medications at Simply Meds Online

Here is a snapshot of the kinds of prescription-strength over-the-counter medications we offer and what prescription-only medications they make a good alternative for. Our range is constantly expanding so please do check back.


Allevia (Equivalent to Fexofenadine 120mg)

Allevia provides relief from allergy symptoms such as sneezing, itching, and watery eyes. It contains the active ingredient Fexofenadine 120mg which requires a prescription. These tablets reduce allergic reactions and are non-drowsy so they are safe to take daily, as required. 


Cialis Together (Equivalent to Cialis As Needed 10mg)

Cialis Together is designed to treat erectile dysfunction by improving blood flow to the penis. It contains the active ingredient Tadalafil which is a prescription medication. Cialis Together is the over-the-counter alternative to Cialis As Needed and works to relax the blood vessels in the penis, allowing for increased blood flow during sexual stimulation. All medications AND prescriptions are sent directly to your door in discreet packaging.


Nexium Control (Equivalent to Nexium 20mg or Esomeprazole 20mg)

Nexium Control offers relief from heartburn and acid reflux symptoms, both of which can be highly uncomfortable, and distracting. Nexium Control (over-the-counter) is equivalent to the prescription medication containing the active ingredient Esomeprazole, which reduces the production of stomach acid to alleviate discomfort. Nexium Control is also a good OTC substitute for Nexium 20mg. We have what you need to banish discomfort so you can get back on with your day.


Pyrocalm (Equivalent to Omeprazole 20mg)

Pyrocalm (brilliantly named) provides relief from indigestion and acid reflux symptoms. It contains the active ingredient Omeprazole, which reduces the amount of acid produced in the stomach. The prescription-only alternative would be Omeprazole 20mg. 


Daktacort 15g and Eumovate 15g (Equivalent to a 30g prescription)

Daktacort and Eumovate offer topical relief from various skin conditions, including eczema and dermatitis. These creams contain active ingredients such as hydrocortisone and clobetasone, which help to reduce inflammation and itching. If you suffer from sore and itchy skin, you know how important it is to get hold of your treatment swiftly which often means without having to wait to see a GP.


Viagra Connect (Equivalent to Viagra 50mg)

Viagra Connect is a non-prescription medication for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. It contains the active ingredient Sildenafil, which helps to increase blood flow to the penis, enabling a firmer and longer-lasting erection. Viagra Connect is an over-the-counter ED medication that offers the same active ingredients as the prescription-only variety.


Gina (Equivalent to Vagifem which is only available on prescription)

When it comes to the menopause you don’t know which symptoms or side effects you may experience until you’re experiencing them. Gina is a prescription-strength OTC treatment which offers relief from symptoms of vaginal atrophy, such as dryness and discomfort during intercourse. It contains the active ingredient Estradiol, which helps to restore vaginal tissue and improve lubrication. Previously the most popular remedy for these symptoms was Vagifem, and that entails a visit to the GP. 

Here at Simply Meds Online we aim to offer multiple options, giving you the freedom to choose how to access the medications you need when needed.


Prescription Strength Over-The-Counter Medications at Simply Meds Online

Over-the-counter remedies provide a convenient and accessible solution for managing a variety of health issues, from allergies and indigestion to erectile dysfunction and skin conditions. With Simply Meds Online, you can access high-quality, prescription-strength medications without a physical visit to the GP for a prescription.

If you have an underlying condition or your symptoms are new,  increasing in severity or you have any concerns please contact your GP. They may need to prescribe something at a higher strength to suit your needs.
