E’ arrivato l’inverno. Sono arrivati anche i malanni di stagione come il raffreddore e l’influenza.

E’ sempre importante sapere dove si trova una farmacia a portata di mano.

In Italia il simbolo delle farmacie ha una forma di croce ed è di colore verde.

La persona che lavora in farmacia si chiama farmacista.

Se la nostra malattia non è molto grave, possiamo chiedere un consiglio al farmacista che ci darà un farmaco adatto oppure ci dirà di andare dal medico.

Ci sono diversi tipi di medicine e possono avere diverse forme: ci sono le pillole e le compresse, ci sono gli sciroppi, le iniezioni, le pomate, le gocce, gli spray, le supposte ecc.

Se siamo andati da un medico possiamo consegnare al farmacista la ricetta medica dove sono indicate le medicine che il medico ci ha prescritto.

Alcuni medicinali possono essere venduti o dati al paziente solo presentando una ricetta. Con la ricetta non dobbiamo pagare il costo delle medicine ma solo una tassa che si chiama “ticket”.

Per gli altri farmaci senza ricetta (chiamati farmaci da banco) dobbiamo invece pagare il prezzo scritto sulla confezione.

TRANSLATION

Winter has arrived. Seasonal sicknesses such as colds and flu have also arrived.

It is always important to know where a pharmacy is at hand.

In Italy, the symbol of pharmacies has a cross shape and is green in colour.

The person who works in the pharmacy is called a pharmacist.

If our disease is not very serious, we can ask the pharmacist for advice and he will give us a suitable drug or tell us to go to the doctor.

There are different types of medicines and they can have different forms: there are pills and tablets, there are syrups, injections, ointments, drops, sprays, suppositories, etc.

If we went to a doctor, we can give the pharmacist the medical prescription where there are all the medicines that the doctor has prescribed.

Some medicines can only be sold or given to the patient by presenting a prescription. With the prescription, we do not have to pay the cost of medicines but only a fee called a “ticket”.

For other non-prescription drugs (called over-the-counter drugs) we have to pay the price written on the package.
