The quality of pharmacies in VN does depend on where they are. City pharmacies, especially those located near hospitals or associated with the hospital tend to be better. Most medicines do not require a prescription. This can, as happened to me, mean being dispensed with an antibiotic for my sore eyes when I only wanted a saline solution to wash them out. I refused the antibiotics.

I cannot give you advice on Dalat pharmacies, sorry. I suggest you come to VN with a long supply of your medicines and then ask when you get here. Good luck.

Chances are you will not be able to find the brand names you use at home, but perfectly good equivalents are available. I prefer to use imported medications since it is well known that
Vietnam & China often sell fake drugs. Research the drugs you take and find out the chemical equivalent available in Vietnam. Dalat is a good size city with many western expats - you will have no trouble finding what you want.

I have 3 drugs I need... and 2 of them I bring from Australia (6 month supply).
As they are on the PBS they are inexpensive .
The 3rd drug I buy here in NhaTrang as its plentiful and cheap to buy...no script required here and the drug works.
