    I read on another earlier thread that you can now buy the tablets over the counter that used to be prescription only. It's an antiviral of some sort.

    You have to have used them previously with successful treatment, to be able to get them as a pharmacist only medicine. So a doctor has to have prescribed them at some stage. In saying this, with the level of care given at some larger discount pharmacies, they are unlikely to ask too many questions (in my experience anyway).
