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:Most meaningful stuff is when I teach. There's little room for cultural learning and science, but I sneak it in anyway. I'll ask questions to the class, which I later answer correctly: What happens when you cook milk? Why should we shake hands with the right hand? Why do we like fatty, sweet and other unhealthy foods so much? Why are kuaizi called chopsticks in English? Why do animals hunt at night? If you take a bite of an onion and don't like it, does that mean you don't like onions? Why?

Why-questions give a mixed reacton in the classroom. Most kids have been conditioned to hate questions without easy rote-learned answers, but once the kids are used to it, some get enthusiastic. They realize they can satisfy their playful exploration by thinking and asking questions, not only by gratifying strokes and narcissistic supply. -- coineineagh
