It depends. Do you have prescriptions written by a doctor here in Panama? Or are you wanting to get medication prescribed to you by a physician from another country? Some medications here do not require written prescriptions, some do.
When I need medications, I always go to Pharmacy Any, on main street. If they don't have it, most times Arrocha in David will.
i also use farmacia any...they have most drugs & are less expensive than my second choice: kitty corner from USBS bank on main street, near the big catholic church, revilla farmacia (rather than drive to david).
I believe mine are prescriptions here. What Dr, here will write inexpensively?
dr. chen's office will do it. located up street from romero's grocery store & kitty corner from melo hardware, one door down from milly's chic hair stylist shop...on right side of the street if driving north. i paid $10 for one Rx. i am not sure if this is the price for 'each Rx' or one visit. i was seen by dr. michael for a very brief chat & left with my Rx. quite a simple process. keep in mind, the Rx which need a prescription, they will keep. the others you can use over & over.
Thank you Susan! Just the info I needed!
you are very welcome :)
Hi Susan! Thank you for the information. We are coming to Boquete in a few weeks and I want to get a 2nd opinion on what a doctor was diagnosing here in the US. Not a happy camper right now. Does Dr. Chen's office need an appointment and if so how would I do that from here. And when you said left with your RX, was that filled there at the doctor? The treatment medications here are over the moon in price and my insurance is stinko on coverage so I thought I could see someone while there and get a different opinion since my insurance will not cover 2nd opinions and any testing. Any suggestions I would very much appreciate. Thx! :)
Most meds in Panama do not need prescriptions. You should only need a prescription for strong pain killers and antibiotics. IN any event I also recommend Farmacia Any
Specifically lopressor/metorolol 100 mg.........over the counter or prescription?
Lopressor is no problem without a prescription.
I will look into it......any idea on cost?
I have gotten CIPRO and a very expensive-in-the-States high dose steroid here without a prescription
