Hey everyone,

I've read that a few users on these forums are currently taking valium (which is the same drug I was prescribed in my home country, Australia) for sleep/anxiety. I essentially require this medication for the same reason.

I'd just like to know if you can recommend any psychiatrists who can help? I'm living in Seoul.

Any helpful replies would be greatly appreciated.

Nick.

note: I'm presently here on holiday visiting my fiancee.

I've found a medical centre in jamsilluru. I was able to confirm with the receptionist that a doctor will be able to pescribe the same anxiety medication I am presently on. The fee is only 60,000 for the consultation which sounds alright (I don't have insurance).

That doesn't sound alright at all. 60,000 for an doctor visit?? Even without insurance it should be no where near that amount.

best bets are either Ansan Medical Center across the river from techno mart or Soonchunhyang University Hospital in Itaewon, both have international clinics with english speaking doctors who deal with this all the time

You can get a Xanax scrip from just about any quack in Korea.
I recommend crushing up a couple of 0.5mg tablets and snorting them.
Then chase them down with a couple shots of Jack Daniels. Guaranteed
to cure what ails you.

It's Asan Medical Center. Just to avoid confusion.

Hey there,

I used Ansan medical however the cost was almost 90,000 kw... any further suggestions would be very useful !

It's a shame that employers can request personal medical information......

I agree medical information should be private. However, maybe if you have psychological problems you should not be working with children.
