Question about pharmacies 

I am currently in Italy but managed to forget my invaluable back tablets. 

Do pharmacies require a doctors prescription are can you purchase medication over the counter. 

They are only anti inflammatory? 

Thanks. 

@JC JC asks:

Hi everyone - are any of you non-Italian residents looking into the Super Eco Bonus? I am still waiting for information from the bank of how it can work with the trading of tax credits.

Hi we are planning to drive down this summer.

In the old days we would take a trailer loaded with personal effects, mainly old used items of very little if any value. 

My question is has anyone passed through French customs with a trailer?
