In NSW, HIV medications are accessed like any other medicine in the community. People living with HIV can get their HIV medications from any local chemist or pharmacy, with a doctor’s prescription. Your local chemist or pharmacist will be able to stock your medication like any other medication. In some cases, you may need to wait a few days for the medication to be delivered to the chemist. Your chemist will be able to provide information about HIV medication, other drug interactions, side effects and toxicity.
HIV medications are also dispensed in NSW sexual health clinics and public hospital pharmacies in NSW. Hospital pharmacies have more limited opening hours. If you choose to pick up your HIV medication from a hospital pharmacy, please call ahead for opening hours as many close early on Fridays or prior to a public holiday.
