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:People always ask me when I will leave China. I have fallen into a love/hate relationship with China. I love the fact that it is ever changing and I am curious to be part of that change. Yet, i hate so many of the things that conflict with my western mentality. So, I aswer to the question of when I plan to leave is not available right now. I have been here two years. I have yet to grow as negative as many of my other foreigner compatriots. If I get to that point I will leave. There is very little in America that is calling me home. I lived there for 45 years of my life. Been there and done that. But, in this experience in China, I have learned that the world is a big place to explore. And, as an ESL teacher, so much of it is available to me. But, for the time being, I will stay here and experience the China that has made its way into my life. When I do leave, it will be bittersweet. I love Asia. I want to see it before moving onto other parts of the world. Eventually, I hope to live my retiring days working as a teacher in South America and having some great adventures like I have ad here in China. -- nashboroguy
