Q: What is the best way to get prescription medicine in Henan?

I have GERD (a.k.a. Acid Reflux) and I take Nexium (the purple pill) once everyday. I have tried alternatives, unfortunately Nexium is the only pill that works for me.

I am just wondering how people get their prescription medicine when they move to China?

I was thinking of having a relative send me my pills, but I checked how much it is and it is quite expensive let alone it takes a long time to receive them. I NEED them and it would be nice to know if it is possible to buy Nexium in China from a reliable pharmacy.

I'm going to be living in the Henan province.
Thanks!

Go to the local hospital accompanied by a Chinese friend. Show an internal medicine doctor your prescription medicine. Should be ok. They will provide you a Chinese version.

Chinese version? Does that mean they change the ingredients?

A:I had a similar experience in HK. If I recall correctly, before or at the Z visa application, I had to submit ME from the ordinary HK clinic, where I explained why I need ME and I asked them to examine only necessary things (I don't remember the cost ...), and then ... I got Z stamp and when back in China, I had to complete another RP ME, which was on the employer, i.e. included in the Contract ...We've never discussed refund of payment for HK ME with my employer. Year 2013 ...I'd say, that is a regular thingy embassies around the world require, before issuing visas for LT stay in the country. "Vladimir Vladimiro-Witch ras-Putin" (LOL@your pronunciation ..) demands the same thingy before granting LT stay in Ruski.  ... Haa, 2013 was the Snowden's year. I was in Kowloon at the time of his landing .. with all these files ... I'm-Still-in-LMAO-State ... Cost for the ME in HK was around HK$ 2000/200 EUR, and ME was kind of swift, quicker and way shorter than on the mainland ... -- icnif77
