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or you could try large pharmacy stores, but seldom have Prozac there, or if do, could be out of date.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:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
