Thanks everyone for the helpful information here. I have seen reference several places online (including this thread) about having prescriptions mailed from a US pharmacy to a German one (I am in Berlin Mitte), but I am not able to find a pharmacy here in Berlin that will do it. My local one has been quite friendly and helpful, but insists that this is only legal within the EU. Could someone possibly share the names of any pharmacies in Berlin that have done this for them, or share the name in German of what this particular provision of the law is called, so that I could find and bring the relevant text of the relevant law to my local pharmacy (who wanted to help me but just does not want to do anything illegal)? Thanks in advance for any help or advice! I am not trying to obtain any pain medications or anything that would normally be restricted in Germany or the US (other than requiring a prescription).
