I am going to be travelling in China and southeast asia for a while and would like to get some Ciproflaxin in case i get a bad stomach virus (has happened before). I was wondering if anyone knows if this is over the counter at some places, or if I have to get a perscription (and how much is it?) Thanks!

It is over the counter in China and you should get some. The boxes will have the name in English. EVery pharmacy carries it.

Good for him/her that it is otc in China (the travel destination). Bad for you that live where it isn't if you need this. Enjoy going to the doctor and getting a 3 day scrip there.

Why on earth do you need ciproflaxin? It's too strong, I guarantee you, for whatever you're going to run into on the road unless you're trying to get rid of some gonorrhea.

Most gonorrhea is cipro-resistant now. You will mostly likely need 3rd generation cepha to clear up gonorrhea.
