Welcome to Sainsbury's home

Is there a restrictions on how many painkillers I can buy?

Our policy states that sales are restricted to a maximum of 2 packets of a combination of any paracetamol, aspirin or ibuprofen based products in a single transaction. Sales are also restricted to customers aged 16 and over.

We have taken this decision as a responsible retailer and in line with the advised guidance from the Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). Further medication above 2 packs has to be sold under the supervision of a pharmacist. Customers can visit LloydsPharmacy in selected Sainsbury's stores.
