Prescription for Zomig

I will be in Vevey for three weeks in May and was wondering if anyone could tell me if the medication Zomig, (for migraines) needs a prescription in Switzerland? Thank you!

Re: Prescription for Zomig

Yes, it is a prescription drug. (Source http://www.kompendium.ch)

For general rules, see here.
For Swiss specific see herE

Best case is when your physician fills out a certification in accordance with Article 75 of the Schengen Implementing Convention. (Maybe an overshot)

But I do not know what the accrediting authority is in the U.S., FDA may be? (In Switzerland, this is delegated to the Pharmacy).

Maybe it would be a good idea to bring them along?
