I would like to start a discussion, and would like to hear from you. What you do and your experience can help some of us decide where we can get our medications, health products and medical accessories. Do not discourage the discussion with what you think is improper or even illegal. But, if you have experienced any good or bad, then, that’s it, we should hear from you.
Here goes. Cheaper or better?
Many seniors and elderlies suffer from some long term sickness. We see a doctor, get a prescription, and we get most of our medication from polyclinics, private clinics, general hospitals and specialist medical centres. For some of us, the medisave allocation gets used up, during the first appointment with the doctor during the area. Some medication is expensive, and requires life long consumption.
Where do we get medication, especially the specialised and expensive ones on a continued basis? We can also buy generic medication, instead of original branded medication.
Where do you buy your medication? Do you go get them from JB, KL or Thailand? Numerous pharmacies in JB. Or do you get them from India, where there are lots of generic medication. Or you try sourcing them from the US and Europe. Give some examples and price comparisons. Have you good experiences or bad ones? Share with us your experience and observations of differences.
Again, please do not discourage anybody from sharing their experiences or recommendations. Be open, and expensive does not mean they are always good or the best.
