Can I use foreign prescription in Japan?


The answer is no; you will need to obtain a prescription from a Japanese licensed doctor.

You will first need to have a consultation with a doctor to obtain your prescription. It may be impossible to fill a prescription with the same foreign brand you have used overseas; a Japanese doctor will prescribe you medication of a different brand but with the same or similar effect.

However, some medications cannot be prescribed at all due to differences in drug regulations.

JHI can assist you in finding a doctor in Japan to prescribe the medication you need. Contact us.

*Please bring your foreign prescription, doctor’s letter or the actual medicine you have been using with you when you visit the Japanese doctor.
