In Norway, medicine is sold at pharmacies. Some medicines are freely available, but most medicines are prescription drugs. A limited selection of medicine is available in ordinary supermarkets. If you need vital medicine for long term illnesses, the government will pay most of what it costs. That means you only pay a small amount of what the medicine costs, and your doctor writes out a refundable prescription.
