Prescription renewal request

Prescription renewal request

You can request to renew a prescription that has already been used for purchasing medicine.

If the prescription is valid for two years, it can be renewed for 28 months from the issue date. Other prescriptions can be renewed for 16 months. 

You can request to renew a prescription 

  • in My Kanta pages
  • when visiting a healthcare service or by calling on the phone
  • when visiting a pharmacy.

It is not possible to have a Finnish prescription renewed by a pharmacy in another European country.
