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 have mixed feelings about that term, because obviously it's used by shitty people to paint us all, but the concept isn't manufactured out of whole cloth either. I dont worry about what xenophobic local losers think, but between other expats I apply that term to people with shitty attitudes and grand delusions. It does NOT apply to somebody who actually makes it here. It's NOT the dude who had a shitty or no job and no luck with women in the west who comes here, does OK with teaching or whatever works his ass off gets married starts a family etc and carries himself like a respectable person. Even though he might have been considered a 'loser' before, i wouldnt call him an LBH cause he used China's opportunity to get his shit together. That guy is no longer a loser by any definition so whats it matter what he was before? The key word of LBH is 'loser'...meaning they continue to be a loser. The LBH is the guy or girl who can't hold down a decent job or functional relationships here either...but who enjoys and relishes in the sort of elevated foreigner status and the attention they can get without any effort. The person with the terrible attitude who manages to keep squeaking by because there is always a ESL school desperate enough to hire them. And yet they maintain a grandiose superior attitude. I guess it's the difference between an opportunity loser and a personality loser. The first guy was probably itching to go his whole life just had nothing interesting come along and maybe not tons of ambition. But he moved to China and became who he always was...a solid hardworking dude. But the personality loser is a "wherever you go there you are" kind of loser. There isn't a situation in the world they could thrive in because the problem is they can't get on with people. But in china they get a certain narcissistic validation from all the attention. -- expatlife26
