Dispensing Medications

Aloha Everyone,

Common over the counter medications such as Tylenol, Advil, Aleve can easily be purchased without prescriptions, right? Not in the Philippines. You need to have a doctor’s order unless you are like us, foreigners. What is amazing is that J.J. and I needed to purchase additional Vitamin D3.

We showed our empty bottle to pharmacist, and she asked how many do we need? They are dispensed by piece, individually packed, so we purchased a total of 60 pieces just to last us until we return to the USA.

Aloha -- Cathi
