Prescriptions
« on: July 18, 2012, 09:44:57 AM »

When I came over from the states, I had a prescription for Ritalin.  It's enough to last me a couple more months, but I don't know what to do after that.  I've heard conflicting reports about it being illegal here, some say it's just specifically Adderall and some say it's everything in that "class".  I have no intention of taking it as a recreational drug, it is a legitimate prescription that I've had for some time now.  How would I go about taking care of that here?  I have the bottle with all of the legal info on it if that helps at all.

Ritalin is available in China but difficult to get prescribed. Dexamphetamine is illegal to buy in China but it's not a problem to bring back with you for 6 months prescription.

Do you think I should go to a Western doctor at a hospital when the time comes?
