Hilarity in China knows no limits, but drug companies must..
« on: April 12, 2009, 12:52:09 AM »
Absolutely hate the fact that one of the few still expanding markets in the world is more or less a free enterprise zone for prescription drugs.

I just bought a box of heavy duty antibiotics for a sinus infection on the pharamcist's advice for under a dollar without a prescription. Looking over the shelves I saw pain killers, anti-inflamatories, and antibiotics all for sale without a prescription.

and dirt cheap..

lol.. eat that Merck.

A nightly news programme featured a story about the hazards of counterfeit pharmaceuticals. When tested the ingredients of the fake drugs weren’t even medicinal.

Going by experience with Romania... Probably not...  It's a crapshoot.

Probably some of its dodgy, but then I don't tend to swallow down anything in sight. I depend upon information from friends or coworkers on brands that work.

So far its worked out pretty well.
