Late night pharmacies/chemists in Adelaide - do any 24 hour ones exist?

Its very hard to find a 24 hour chemist in Adelaide (dont think they exist). If you want to fill a prescription after trading hours your options are:
Call ahead! Nothing worse than showing up and they are closed.

Only late night chemists I could find are:

Midnight Pharmacy located at 192-198 Wakefield Street, Adelaide. Phone 08 8232 4445. Open - Monday to Saturday 7.00am 12 midnight; Sundays, Public Holidays 9.00am 12 midnight.

John Quinn Norwood Pharmacy - located at 188 The Parade, Norwood, Phone (08) 8364 5676. Open - Monday to Friday 7am-10pm, Sat-Sun 8am10pm

United Discount Chemists - located at 513 Bridge Road, Para Hills, phone (08) 8258 3120). Open Mon-Fri 9am-10pm, Sat, Sunday and public holidays 9am9pm.

Hopefully we can add to this list!

unfortunately due to the amount of security needed, plus the risk of druggies etc, pharmacies don't open 24 hours. Try using http://www.whatsopen.com.au

On my trips to Adeliade I've struggled to find anything open late at night! It's worse than Perth and nothing like Melbourne, where late night people are well catered for.

There's another 7am-Midnight chemist on Jetty Rd, Glenelg. I normally go to this one as the one in the City is in a pretty dodgy part (next to Maccas West Terrace, which can be pretty hairy sometimes).

I guess if I need my medication at 3am and I forgot to fill my prescription the day before, I'm SOL.

There should be a 24 hour pharmacy somewhere. I would think so at least. I'm prone to kidney stones. If I were to get one overnight and I wasn't able to get my pain killer prescription I would not be a very happy camper. I hope you can find something.

Adelaide is the worst city in Australia, nothing stays open to cater for people I Regards to healthcare we have 5 kids between the ages of. 11 months and 12 years and when flu hits or there is something viral going around you can’t always plan for it. Home Doctors don’t carry everything, we needed zirtac for our 11 month old . He was too sick and feverish to take out so we booked the home doctor and by the time he got to us at 12:45 there was nothing we could do. There should be a 24 hour pharmacy set up at hospitals across Adelaide but like everything else in this state , we are 30 minutes and 10 years behind the rest of the country... wished we’d stayed in Melbourne where this type of drama never happens...

JamesMac please feel free to return to Melbourne permanently as soon as possible.
Adelaide is a fantastic city, with many more important things than 24hour access to everything. Anyone who can’t see that is unwelcome in our beautiful home town.

This is a useful subject to discuss. I agree that we are not well catered for with 24 and even 12 hour opening pharmacies.

I live down at Victor Harbor on the south coast where things are even worse. There is one pharmacy in Victor Harbor Central That is open until 6 pm five days a week but closes at 4 pm on Sunday. The rest of the pharmacies on the south coast to the best of my knowledge don’t even open over the weekend possibly a few on Saturday morning.

I know the pharmacy on Bridge Road Para Hills very well as I used to live very close. That was certainly very useful with it and I use it a lot
