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?
