Buying prescriptions in Singapre

Postby ehud42 » Mon, 14 Feb 2011 9:44 am

Hi,

I might be moving to Singapore soon and one of my hold ups is figuring out how I will get medications for my wife and her pre-existing condition.

My question is what are some places or phone numbers that I could call to get prices for prescription drugs? The drug I am interested in is Etanercept.

Thank you for your time,

Having said that, prescription drugs can only be bought thru GP or GP prescribed. I am not sure of the cost .. Try www.hsa.gov.sg
