I don't actually have the original, my local(ish) pharmacy kept it and gave me a photocopy. It's not a handwritten one anyway. Doesn't sound like an online pharmacy would make my life any easier though - sounds more work than going into town.
Doesn't have to be hand written for mediservice, they accept typed up ones as well. So long as the doctor has signed and stamped it, they're happy.

Re: Online pharmacies

Consider an in-between solution. We use Amavita, because they have a decent network of stores (https://www.amavita.ch/de/storepickup) and solid online delivery (just not very good at announcing partial deliveries on bigger orders). The pharmacist has authority to deliver even some prescription medicine under some conditions, and from there, it's typically about local initiative.



You did not specify whether this is for prescription and if this is for a repeat order, but even OTC is not a given without at least one pharmacy visit unlike in much of Europe. Here is what Amavita recommends:


Why can't I get home delivery and must I pick up the products at the pharmacy?
In Switzerland, it it not allow to home deliver medications from list D (so-called OTC) without advice from a doctor or pharmacist. If you have left a permanent prescription at an Amavita pharmacy, contact them directly, as some pharmacies [individual stores] offer home delivery for regular clients."



(at https://www.amavita.ch/fr/contact under "Pourquoi je ne peux pas me faire livrer à domicile et dois récupérer les produits en pharmacie ?"

"En Suisse, il n'est pas permis de livrer à domicile des médicaments de la liste D (dits OTC) sans l'avis d'un médecin ou d'un pharmacien. Si vous avez déposé une prescription permanente dans une pharmacie Amavita, contactez directement votre pharmacie Amavita, car certaines pharmacies proposent un service de livraison à domicile pour leurs clients réguliers."
