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:Wow, I just read this thread and I must say, people on this forum are EDGY! It's like they come here to rant and sometimes those rants are misdirected and end up at each other.  1. I read the question before I read the answers and never did I epxect people to lash out at Mike for asking it. People calling him all this shit because he shared a nice moment he was having. crazy. When I read it I though, 'Shit, wish I was doing that'. Not, what a dickhead for telling us nice things.  2. I think people sometimes forget that you can belong to a forum and NOT answer a question. Why do some people have to comment on EVERY questions, sometimes just to say 'This is a stupid question'. Why not just ignore it and comment on those you feel are worthy?! 3. WHEN DID BATHS BECOME GAY? It's a bath, it cleans you, it's relaxing, how is that gay? Personally I don't like baths (although I love hot tubs/jacuzzis) because I find them boring. Showers are quick and easy. But for those who say they love them, good one you. It must be a stereotype in some countries then.. -- brother1818
