Demand for colchicine is high, according to pharmacists in Athens 9.84. As they say, it is a safe medicine, but it is administered only with a prescription.

The recent announcements about colchicine, the cheap drug that has now been approved to be used in Greece in patients with coronavirus, have aroused the interest of the public. People were informed by the media about colchicine and now they rush to the pharmacies asking to buy the medicine.

"Citizens should know that it is useless to ask pharmacies for the drug. "Colchicine is not given in any case without a doctor's prescription", the pharmacists typically note.

Pharmacists even emphasize that it is administered only with a prescription that is even stored for two years. This means that it is kept at the pharmacy for possible prescription checking at a later time. In this case it is checked not only if there is a prescription but also why this prescription was given by the doctor.
