Q: Do Chinese pharmacies sell western or TCM antidepressant medications?

Do Chinese pharmacies sell western medications for depression? Do you need a doctor's prescription to get them?

 

I guess I'd be willing to try traditional Chinese medicines (TCM) too, but I don't really know much about them.

 

Anybody have any experience with these here?

Be careful in China - so many fake medications for sale, so many remedies that are based on constipation (given as a relief for all things). Pharmacies do sell both types but you are advised to go to see a doctor first particularly for any psychotic medication such as anti-depressants and anti-anxiety drugs. Always consult a psychologist for your condition and receive psychotherapy. (not a psychiatrist - ie drug pusher). Do use a western style hospital and get what you need via the general doctor.

A:Hmmm - I'm sure I answered this (and some other posts...). What you don't seem to get is that an older population is bad for a country... the expenses in looking after the elderly (welfare, hospitals, etc) start taking up more of the tax cake - a cake that's getting smaller because there are less people contributing to it (ie, workers). From an earth impact perspective - good! But from most other perspectives - bad. -- Shining_brow
