Dutch website selling tapering kits for coming off antidepressants launches English-language version


"Because the purchase is being made outside the normal UK drug supply chain, a UK prescription is not required — even though the strips are made up of prescription-only medicines (POMs). “Although POMs can be imported for personal use, self-medication is potentially risky and we advise against this,” he said."
