Q: How can I get a perscription filled when the medication is not common here?

Does anyone else suffer from celiac disease and the skin rash that goes with it? I am trying to renew a prescription for dapsone and I am having a heck of a time.  The hospitals don't seam to have it since gluten allergies are not common in China. Any ideas?

I'd try any special medical treatment/purchases in Hong Kong.

 

There are few web links on Yahoo-gle for 'Dabsone medication in HK':

I have been feeling a little stressed and low due to some time sensitive work demands this week and then BAM!!!, Mr paulaecole, out of the blue you come like Jesus on a Harley and ask this question. I felt my IQ soar by at least 20 points in the time it took to read your OP. Thanks to you, I am now on top of the world and brimming with confidence. Thank you Sir!!

 

And before you ask....No, I cannot give you visa advice for working on a student visa and getting married to an ethnic chinese girl living in Quebec pregnant with your cousin's child that you intend to sponsor for a visa until she can find a better catch and get across the border to the promised utopia of Foreignerland, in addition, I cannot tell you where to buy batteries or get a massage (with or without a happy ending) and I don't know if the 022 bus goes to Shekou. However, I would suggest you take your own condom to Coco Park.

I finally tracked them down at a hospital in Guangzhou, but they don't want to give me more than a weeks supply. I have found out that it is a highly controlled drug in China because of the problems discussed in the fact sheet.  http://www.hkam.org.hk/publications/hkmj/article_pdfs/hkm0606p174.pdf   

 

Hong Kong might be the best answer. 

 

Thanks for the help.
