I am considering moving to Lisbon from the United States and wanted to know around how much my medications would cost.

They are:

  • Buproprion 450 mg (300mg+150mg)
  • Mirtazipine 45 mg
  • 2
    To a European, it sounds like an odd question. What would be your status in Portugal? How would you be insured? It could make the price question moot. – Gala Jul 16 '15 at 17:50

    Another question is whether those medications are even approved in Portugal. When I lived in the Netherlands, I knew someone who told me he took Bupropion but that it was only approved for smoking cessation, and that he had a very difficult time getting the doctor to prescribe it for another purpose. – phoog Jul 16 '15 at 18:04
  • @Gala I would be on a Shengen Visa (0-90 day tourist), and I would not be insured – Bryan Jul 16 '15 at 18:43

    As you will be there for a short stay you are probably better off bringing enough medication for the duration of your trip. – phoog Jul 16 '15 at 18:53

    @Bryan I think you are approaching this the wrong way. You should first figure out under what conditions you could get a visa. I don't know specifically about Portugal but in many European countries, you will need to apply for that visa from outside the country (i.e. you will not be able to transition from a Schengen visa-free stay to a long stay). And qualifying for a long-stay visa or residence permit might not be trivial. – Gala Jul 16 '15 at 21:56
