Human Pharmaceuticals

Pharmaceuticals are registered and approved by the Danish Medicines Agency; therefore they are also known as registered pharmaceuticals. Overall pharmaceuticals are products which prevent, acknowledge, relieve, treat and cure diseases, symptoms and pain. The current pharmaceuticals which are authorized for the Danish market can be viewed in the Price List published by the Danish Medicines Agency every fortnight.

Pharmaceuticals are comprised of prescription medicines and non-prescription medicines. The latter may be confined to sale from pharmacies or it may be sold elsewhere (e.g. shampoo). The products sold elsewhere are also known as liberalised over-the-counter drugs.
