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:I reckon that there is a problem with overpopulation, but also an issue with this population focusing on the Eastern regions.  However, right now there is a bigger problem as the share of the population that is older and retired is going to increase to a point where it will be hard for the younger generation to support/fund those who aren't contributing to the economy economically.  One-child policy reform came too late!  -- sm90
