Eczanes - Pharmacies and Pharmaceuticals in Turkey

Post by breakfastattiffanys » Tue Jul 10, 2012 9:07 pm

Hello!

I am a Canadian, planning to travel back to Turkey in the fall, for a long term stay, hopefully to relocate.
I have a specified medical condition (and allergies) that I require two types medications for, and I cannot, despite extensive searching, find out if it's available (Prescription or Over the Counter).
I've heard it said that most drugs that are normally needed by prescription in North American, can be obtained at Eczanes without a prescription.

Is this true? How can I find out before hand if this type of medication is available? I don't want to go there and end up without having this available.

Any help would really be appreciated. Thank you very much,

Merhaba
My prescription only meds are purchaseable over the counter here (Istanbul).

I suggest you try any eczane by email and ask. I happened to buy mine from umit_sahin60@hotmail.com yesterday.

Good luck
