Title: Imigram available without prescription in China?
Post by o2 on Dec 17th, 2005, 3:55am
Hey there, is there any one out there living in China?
Just wondering as i am currently travelling around in Asia and got a nice early present from Santa in the form of CH. I'm in Hong Kong right now [ a bit different although it is a part of China now] and managed to get Imigram 50mg...but i ran out of my injections and can only seem to get those on order [800HKD for 2] and i am leaving for Guangzhou tomorrow. I am ok for a little while but just want to make sure i can get more in China if i need them. Already checked that i can buy more in Cambodia when i get there which is cool, but not sure about China. Maybe an idea to have a section on this site for fellow travellers with info about what treatments are available where when you don't have your won doctor at hand...just a thought! I would love to get oxygen but it is slightly inconvenient when travelling around on a bicycle and also it's hard enough to persuade a dr in Europe to give me some, so can't even be bothered to try here. I did go see a traditional Chinese doctor though and i can tell you that his incredibly disgusting tea did jack... what a surprise that was! ; )

any info on treatments available in China would be great, thanks!

oh and merry christmas to you all!

Thanks Nancy! Your prayers are needed right now... Pain is just easing a little now at 2am after resorting to chewing 3 imigrans (no idea if it actually speeds up the process but boy do I wish Glaxo made strawberry flavoured ones!)in sheer desperation. I will stock up on as many injections as I can next chance I get no matter what the price! I'm so happy to be able to access this site through my phone now...my little mobile support group is invaluable when alone million miles away from friends and family! Thank you!!!
