PRODUCTS & CATALOGUE
The above message means our Distribution Centers are currently out of stock of the particular item and it cannot be ordered online at this time.
If you have a local store, please contact them directly to query if they have the stock available.
Alternatively you can contact our Customer Service team here and we will endeavor to locate the stock for you in our stores.
All orders must be paid in full before Chemist Warehouse will process them. Pharmacy Junction stocks in store around 90% of products ordered and orders any other products.
Please be advised, we have seven distribution centers across Australia.
The Distribution Centre that is responsible for your order may not always have every item listed on your order in stock. In this instance we will send you an out of stock notification providing you with options on how to proceed with your order.
In some cases suppliers may discontinue stock of a product, Chemist Warehouse are not always informed until after an order has been placed. We are currently developing new systems to limit this problem. In these cases, the item is cancelled from the order and a refund is given via the payment method used when placing your order.
No, fragrances cannot be returned or exchanged in line with our Returns Policy so please choose carefully.
No, Due to Health Regulations and in line with our Returns Policy we do not refund or exchange on any orally taken products as we cannot guarantee storage outside the premises.
We always want to make sure that our customers have absolute confidence in every product they purchase.
This is especially the case in medicines, vitamins and many other healthcare products.
It is important that our customers know that every medicine is safe and effective with no possibility of the medicine being compromised in any way due to storage or handling.
We state in store and on our receipts “Medicines, baby formula and vitamin supplements refunds or exchanges will also not be accepted outside normal statutory obligations.”
This policy exists to protect customers.
We take care to stock all items inside each Chemist Warehouse catalogue on the Pharmacy Junction website.
Unfortunately some items are too bulky, have limited availability or unsafe to send through the post.
Therefore we avoid listing them as not to disappoint customers who won’t be able to receive them.
Please note, not all promotions and gift with purchases are available online and can only be obtained in store.
A majority of products on the Chemist Warehouse website are kept at Chemist Warehouse stores and this can vary from store to store.
Products that are only available on the website will state this in their product description.
Not all products available in Chemist Warehouse stores can be supplied through the website. Products that are stored in the fridge and heavy or bulky items cannot always be supplied via the website.
In most cases the prices are the same but they can vary on some items e.g. promotions and 2 for offers.
Please check with your local Chemist Warehouse store on the price and availability of products.
At Pharmacy Junction if you find a cheaper price on the same item at another Australian Registered Pharmacy or Australian Registered Retailer we will match it and give you 10% off the difference.
The price matching policy is limited to the retail limit applicable or a maximum quantity of three of each product.
If you would like to price match in store, please bring a catalogue from the other retailer containing valid proof of their price. The discount will take place during the time you purchase the product in store and our staff may choose to contact the competitor to verify their price before granting the price match.
If you would like to price match online, please send us a direct link of the product on the competitors’ website it is being advertised on and your order number. Please note we require notification of your price match request within 24 hours of placing an order with us.
You will need to pay for your order in full, however after your price match has been approved you will receive a refund for the matched price.
Our price matching policy excludes international orders and offers that are exclusively online.This policy cannot be applied to products at the other company if they are:
- • – out of stock
- • – short dated
- • – on clearance or discontinued
- • – A part of a promotional offer e.g. buy one get one free
**Pharmacy Junction reserves the right to deny any price matching claims if they do not meet the above criteria.**
Our policy is to supply products with at least 1 month expiry beyond the normal expected time it would take to consume based on normal dosages.
As we have no control over expiry dates supplied from the manufacturer, we are unable to supply requests for extended expiry dates and we do not recommend ordering any more than 6 months’ supply of any product.
Any orders in excess of 6 months’ supply or in excess of retail quantities are at the risk of the purchaser in regards to expiry dates.

PRESCRIPTION & PHARMACY ONLY MEDICATIONS
Yes. We have Pharmacists available to speak at the following times:
Monday to Friday: 8.30am to 5:30pm EST
Saturday: 9:00am to 1pm EST
The phone number is (02) 9633 2238.
Legislation in Australia deems that “Pharmacist Only Medication” requires personal counseling by a pharmacist on sale of the item. As an internet order pharmacy does not provide this, a prescription will enable a Pharmacist to provide appropriate counseling. In store shoppers at Chemist Warehouse do not require a prescription.
A customer can place an order for “Pharmacist Only Medication” online or over the phone and receive direct counseling from a pharmacist that will allow the medication to be sent without a prescription. Please phone and ask to talk to one of our pharmacists.
No, it is illegal to accept faxed or emailed prescriptions in Australia at this stage. We must receive the original before we can dispense and send.
This can be posted to our reply paid address below:
Shop 5020/159-175 Church St,
Parramatta NSW 2150
Yes, but you must have a prescription written by an Australian Registered Prescriber.
We cannot accept international prescriptions. It is illegal to send any prescriptions subsidised under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) out of Australia even if you are an Australian resident.
All prescription medicines sent out of Australia must be paid for at the private price.
In store these products are kept in the Professional Service Area which is in view of the Pharmacist.
Online there is no Pharmacist present during the transaction; therefore we can only supply a limit of 1 per order.
This is in accordance with the Pharmacy Board of Australia.
Can Pharmacy Junction keep my prescription repeats on file to save me some time next time I place an order?
Yes, just attach a note saying you give us permission to keep repeats on your file, or select the option when ordering a prescription online. The next time you place an order, we automatically match up the repeats with the order.
In addition, you can also elect to receive automatic monthly email reminders to increase medication compliance.
Items which are subsidized by the Government under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) are charged at different prices depending on the type of benefit card a customer may have.
There are three different levels under the PBS.
The first is called General patients. These are customers with a Medicare card, but no other benefit cards (i.e. no pension card or concession card). These customers must pay up to the first $39.30 before the Government begins to subsidise their medicines.
The second is Concession patients. These are customers who are on a health care card, pension card, Veterans’ affairs card or safety net concession card. These patients pay the first $5.50 of a prescription and the Government subsidises the rest.
The third is the Safety Net Entitlement patients. These are people who have a benefit card and obtain 60 prescriptions in a calendar year. These people obtain prescriptions at no cost.
The private price you see on most prescription medications is the price with no Government subsidy.
NB Additional charges may apply over and above these if a patient elects to receive a more expensive brand.
Under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS), the Government subsidises many medicines so that all Australians can have access to affordable prescription medicines. Because they are paying for some or all of the cost of these medicines, they impose restrictions on how frequently they can be dispensed. This varies from item to item but you can ask your pharmacist what the time interval is on a particular product. In most cases the time interval is 21 days. Items dispensed before this time interval cannot be covered under the PBS except in special circumstances.
Unless your doctor has endorsed your script “Regulation 24” or has written the prescription for the increased quantity we are unable to supply increased amounts. Please talk to one of our pharmacists before placing an order in this case.
No. Due to Queensland Health regulation, medicines including any preparation that is taken orally cannot be returned for credit. This is because once the product has left the pharmacy, the storage conditions of the product and the efficiency cannot be guaranteed.
In the event I cannot obtain a prescription for a “pharmacist only medicine”, how can I order these medications?
You can place an order for “pharmacist only medication” online or over the phone and receive direct counselling from a pharmacist that will allow the medication to be sent without a prescription.
Please phone us and ask to talk to one of our pharmacists on (02) 9633 2238
No. Unless your doctor has endorsed your script “Regulation 24” or has written the prescription for the increased quantity we are unable to supply increased amounts.
Please talk to one of our pharmacists before placing an order in this case on (02) 9633 2238.
You can also ask your doctor to write your script out for the increased quantity.
Please note that if you do obtain multiple packs on the one order, they may no longer count towards your Safety Net limit. If you would like to know more about the Safety Net, please phone and ask to talk to a pharmacist.
Yes, all “Prescription Only Medicines” require a prescription from an Australian registered doctor before we can supply. NB some items may only be able to be supplied on a prescription from a Queensland registered doctor. This will be stated in the product description.
If a doctor deems it necessary according to the rules of Regulation 24 (see www.pbs.gov.au) they can write Regulation 24 next to any item prescribed and this will allow the pharmacist to dispense all of the repeats at once. The following rules apply to a Regulation 24 Script -:
-It can only apply to a new prescription and not a repeat prescription.
-It can only be done on the first dispensing. If the Regulation 24 is not dispensed on the first dispensing then all rights to the Regulation 24 will be lost.
-All of the repeats have to be dispensed at one time. Therefore you cannot get 3 lots now and then another 3 lots later. It is either get them all dispensed at once or one at a time like a normal script.
-It is the doctor that has to endorse the script Regulation 24 and the pharmacist has no control over this.
Pharmacy Junction’s prime objective is to ensure the safety of the patient in regards to the safe use of medications.
Pharmacy Junction staff reserve the right to refuse any orders it may deem to not fit this criteria, or of a nature that may be unsafe in its volumes or capacity for misuse. The sole discretion is that of the pharmacist in charge.
