Call 3237 (this telephone service is chargeable)
Go to the website www.3237.fr
- Write your postal code or the name of your city.
- Click on “search”.

This service concerns the 8 departments of the Ile-de-France region: Paris (75), Seine-et-Marne (77), Yvelines (78), Essonne (91), Hauts-de-Seine (92), Seine-Saint -Denis (93), Val-de-Marne (94), Val d'Oise (95).

If you need to go to a pharmacy on duty at night (and you live outside Paris), it is necessary to contact the police or the gendarmerie.
Call 17 and ask where the nearest duty pharmacy is located.
In Paris, at night, you don't need to call 17: duty pharmacies are open and directly accessible.
