Pharmacies in Medellin

There seems to be pharmacies on most of the major streets in El Poblado, especially on Avenida Poblado and Calle 10. Nearly all of them offer a home delivery service. Most hospitals have pharmacies on site although they tend to be a little more expensive.

At times, the pharmacy may ask if you’d like the original drug or the cheaper generic product – the price difference between the two may be quite significant.

  1. The bottom line is that if you live in Medellin you can have access to world-class health care in several hospitals and clinics in the city at a much lower cost than is found in the states.

  2. I’m visiting Medellin soon. I am looking for a pharmacy in Medellin with email. I want to make sure that they have the medication and what they would cost. I have attempted to call on several occasions without results. I am hoping to email photos of my medication.
