URGENT RE: Anti-Anxiety Medication

Post by jminxela » Fri Jan 20, 2017 6:43 pm

Hello. Does anyone know where I can find a doctor in Xela that prescribes anti-anxiety medications (i.e.-klonopin (clonazepam)? I live in Zona 3. I see that there are a wealth of pharmacies here, but I do understand that a doctor must prescribe a medication before I would be able to purchase it from a pharmacy. I have asked a trusted friend and a co-worker here in Xela, but they say that they do not know. Any information is appreciated. Thank you.

Not in my experience. Generally speaking you can ask the pharmacist for medicine either by active ingredient or brand name (in which case they may suggest the generic alternative)
