Philippines: Buying medication in the Philippines

61 ratings | 3044 views
Where is the best place to buy drugs in the Philippines? There are three major drugstore chains to choose from: Watson's, Mercury and The Generic Pharmacy. But even though everyone knows generics are usually cheaper, the difference in price can be astounding. Sometimes as much as 40x more!

Someday I may be coming to visit my friend there. I use several prescriptions to control epileptic seizures and MUST use the brand name drugs! Can I purchase these medications in the drug store without my prescriptions? Or, should I have those documents with me?
surveyguyor (5 months ago)
yes. and you need the prescriptions to get through customs also.

I have no idea about medicine for epilepsy, sorry. You should probably bring an Rx with you.

Is Philippines the place to be if you need constant medical treatment?
surveyguyor (5 months ago)
no! if you don't trust me, watch videos from other expats. the PH is not the place to be. you should not move to the Philippines if you have constant health issues. anything cronic that needs medical attention. Heart problems, or anything really especially that needs constant medical attention.

I can't speak from experience but I hear there are some good hospitals here. I guess it depends what you need.

Thanks for the good info. I don't like pills in general but I do pay extra for Advil. I use much less than the generic brands. My dentist informed me that while the active ingredient is (or should be) the same in generics, Advil in particular, the other active ingredients that help it absorb and target the pain, are not the same. I have had prescription pain pills a few times and always gone back to Advil as the prescription side affects always bothered me and didn't handle pain any better. We all react differently though. I will definitely search out Generic stores.

Oi, Excellent topic! I take tramadol 50 mg and here in the land of milk and honey, ya right! The price is 72 cents per. tablet. Oh, and that' medication requires a Rx so add about 150.00 USD to that bottom line for a doctors visit not to mention the follow ups. Please someone take me done from the cross! Now what would that conversion be in PHP currency boys and girls? Salamat
Slow Easy English (2 years ago)
Well, you'll sure save money on Tramadol when you get here, that's for sure. LOL Thoughts or ideas regarding? Any specific questions?
Expat N Training (2 years ago)
I'm not sure but a great idea! My plan is to move there in the next 6 months, any thoughts or ideas?

+Expat N Training If you loaded up, that would pay for your trip. Don't know if that's legal. Can you say it's prescription to take it back?

Maybe I missed it, but did you indicate that the generics were as helpful as the name brand.. Were these drugs effective?? Thanks for the video....
Bruce Boggan (2 years ago)
+Slow Easy English Thanks for the input, Sir!!!
Slow Easy English (2 years ago)
+Bruce Boggan There's only one medication that I had the opportunity to try both the brand name and the generic. I didn't feel a difference between the two. For the others generics I've tried, I never tried the brand name equivalent so I can't compare but they did what they were supposed to do. The ingredients are supposed to be exactly the same chemically so I don't expect there to be a difference.

I do not understand why I always understand everthing that you speak, but, I do not understand other native people speaking, why does it hapens to me?
Luiz F Maurina (2 years ago)
You can understand him because he speaks slowly without slang, phrasal Verbs and difficult words, he speaks in a way that it's easy to understand.
You should be careful with tramadol ._. It's an opioid analgesic.
LuzaFK (2 years ago)
Hi, Syl! I'm on the other side of the world, I'm Brazilian and here,the generics aren't that cheap. I'm shocked to know about that huge difference among those drugstores. I'm wondering how does pharmaceutical industry work, isn't it crazy? Anyway, I wish you get better. I gonna keep on watching your videos, love them.

Hey Syl, enjoyed this video, like the way you teach, speaking about different thing with such a clarity. I found out your Chanel about two or three days ago, and got upset when noticed that you haven't uploaded videos for 3 month or something, and then you pull out 3 videos in less then two days. I decided you will become my number one teacher =) Will be happy to watch your new videos daily, and watch the others while you making a new one. The work you are doing is really great! Wish you good luck! Your Belarussian follower.
