The French word for Pharmacy is Pharmacie and is pronounced in the same way. Shops are visible due to the traditional Green Cross displayed outside.
Generally drugs that are freely available across the counter are the same as can be purchased at a UK Chemist shop.
The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) entitles you to receive treatment with the same rights as a French residence. If you have a prescription from the UK or issued in France you should present it together with the EHIC when you go to the pharmacy.
You should pay the same rate at the pharmacy as someone who was insured and living in that country. In France, for residents the Carte Vitale is the health insurance card of the national health care system in France.
