Q: Where can I buy Prozac in Shanghai?

Sometimes, I suffer from mild depression and I'm wondering where I can buy Prozac or similar anti-depressants in Shanghai. And how much would they cost? I'd appreciate any help in this matter. Thanks.

prozac is the brand name ..... you have to find the medicine with generic or chemical name  they are anti depressant....... so it much better to get prescription from the doctor. if you took with out proper monitoring you may do harm to yourself. i will leave a link for you please read that and also have a check with doctor possible a psychiatrists.... the generic name is fluoxetine for prozac.... but please check every detail before taking them. they are not OTC medicine . so it hard to find in the shops better go to hospital.

at least in my city you can buy it.  you must locate what is locally known as a mental hospital, and go visit a doctor there (5 Rmb per visit) to get a prescription.  Then buy drug at pharmacy within hospital.  Locally, Prozac is 30 Rmb per pill, generic Chinese equivalents are 5 Rmb per pill.

or you could try large pharmacy stores, but seldom have Prozac there, or if do, could be out of date.

my gf used to take it for depressive bouts around menstruation time.

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
