PHARMACIES AND OVER THE COUNTER REMEDIES
By law you are only allowed to buy medication in France from a pharmacy. You won’t be able to buy things from the supermarket like you can in the UK.
The nearest chemists are at Val d’Europe and at Magny le Hongre. neither are open on a
Sunday. The nearest 24hr/7 day week pharmacy is at Torcy.
Forum Sante at Val d’Europe

If you are at DLP, go into the RER side of the station and get a ticket to Val d’Europe (one stop and costs around €1.50). When you get off the train, turn right on the platform and follow the signs for “Sortie 1 Centre Commercial“. When you exit the station, turn right again, walk to the end of the road, cross over and you will see the pharmacy by the entrance to the shopping centre. It’s just two minutes walk from the station. The staff are very used to English visitors and speak excellent English if your French isn’t up to explaining medical problems.
The map below shows the location of the pharmacy and also the Val d’Europe RER station .

When you reach the road, turn right and just along the road on your left there is a Casino supermarket; the pharmacy is just round the corner next to the supermarket. The walking route is shown on the map below.

Turn right when you get up into the shops and restaurants and the chemist is just at the other end of the row on the right.
OUT OF HOURS SERVICE (Service de garde)
Most pharmacies operate within a rota system for Sundays and public holidays. So if you go to a chemist and it is closed on these days, there should be a notice in the window to show which chemist is scheduled to be open (Pharmacie de garde).
TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN
If it’s Calpol you’re after… Calpol isn’t available in France. One French equivalent is called Doliprane pediatrique. The pharmacist will need to know the weight of your baby in kilos in order to inform you of the correct dose. (Medicines are apparently commonly given to babies in France as suppositories, so if you don’t fancy this, make sure you ask for “by mouth”).
Here are a couple of links to a useful website which might help with a bit of medical French vocabulary if you are totally stuck:
