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:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
