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:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
