Q: Where can I buy syringes in Shenyang?

I take testosterone cyp injections every two weeks (medically necesary).  My problem is that while I brought plenty of medicine, I did not bring enough syringes. I cannot find out where to buy them here.  Does anyone have any idea?  I went to the local pharmacy and showed them what I need, but they just shook their heads.

Try a pharmacy next to a hospital. When a friend was hospitalized, the nurse suggested, not sure why, that the family bought things like IV lines themselves to get imported quality (rather than the default stuff the hospital uses) Next to at least two hospitals here in town, there are shops where you can buy anything from bandaid to hospital beds. 

 

If not, taobao, not sure I'd trust this kind of product from taobao.

Thank you.  The pharmacy closest to me is outside of the downtown area, and not near any hospitals.  I'll do as you suggested and find one near a hospital.

If that fails, maybe pop into the hospital and ask a doctor or a nurse.

You'll find English speaking MDs at any Hospital, so I'd go and ask MDs for guidance. Some pharmacists speak English, too.

 

You could also get syringes mailed from your home.

Dear Gary,

 

I have personally used each of these two hospitals below.  They do have a large dispensary and a very large patient outclinic.  They are the only two hospitals in Shenyang officially approved to treat foreigners.  I have provided you with the names and telephone numbers of English-speaking doctors.

 

Contrary to what others have written, I would never, ever, ever buy a syringe from a chemist in this country.  I would purchase one directly from a hospital dispensary and have the dispensary open an unsealed box in front of me.  They are usually quite obliging.

Thank you very much.  Is this also where a foreigner would go for things like a routine checkup or volunteer surgery (I am considering getting an implant to eliminate the need for injections)?
