Generic Drugs In The Philippines

I believe legally these "generic ," drug stores are supposed to sell only to other drug stores in bulk. But they did sell me a box of propranolol. But it is not uncommon for drugs, common, non narcotic drugs, to be sold without prescription, even antibiotics, unfortunately. You really should require a prescription from a doctor for antibiotics and doctors counseling. People don't understand the importance of taking a full course of antibiotics when they do have to take them, should not take one for a headache as I have seen here. But I digress.

Medical Tourism

Cebu is inadequate in terms of facilities and infrastructure in order to attract the wealthy European tourists seeking medical help - these have to be taken immediate attention to.

Don comments:

To me there seems to be some misunderstanding here. Why in the world would "wealthy European tourist" want to come here for their medical needs? Certainly this is not the target market. Observing medical tourism and being a part of myself and encouraging many others to come here.
