Q: pharmaceutical availability in china? Especially anti-depressants

Are anti-depressant drugs available in China.  Specifically, Wellbutrin, Lomictal, Viibryd and Abilify?  Where can I get them?  Are they available over the counter or do I need some type of prescription for them?

Only at some large pharmacies.  If can not find, look in your city for location of a mental hospital.  Go there, maybe will have to see a doctor to get a prescription, but at the hospital they do have a pharmacy with local and foreign medicaments.  Maybe as much as 30 Rmb per pill if foreign medicine, local ones are about 5 Rmb
