    Yet another thing I do not buy in the DR - prescription drugs. Too many counterfeited stuff and nothing is regulated. No thank you!

    I make sure I take/bring bulks with me to to the DR in every travel to CONUS.

    There are trustworthy brands - I buy my Crestor in the DR and it's manufactured in Puerto Rico. My bisoprolol is made in Uruguay by Roemmers ( Ratio) Ethical is also a good brand. When I go back to Canada I pick up a 200 day supply ( that's the most they will give me and I don't pay for it as it's one of my veterans benefits)

    this is the government founded pharmacy. normally attached to public clinic/hospital. the meds sold there are basic generic versions made locally. no need to have insurance, residency or prescription. unfortunately it seems they only have the strength as listed by celt.

    The cheapest farmacia I have found, which is also 24 hours is on the main road in Charamicos about 5 businesses past Caribe Tours, headin to Puerto Plata. Same drugs at a fraction of the cost of other more glitzty farmacias.

    Paid 865 for 30 112mcg tablets. Abbot Labs brand Synthroid manufactured by Knoll LLC Jayuya Puerto Rico.
    Seems clinic mentioned is about a 7 minute walk from Caribe Tours.
    May try going there or send from states.

    On the main road - not entering Charamicos. Many people use it

    Is the Charamicos Pharmacy the one with the long space, narrow depth and only a few years old?

    Farmacia Alberto
    809-571-1034

    10% discount if paying cash and you ask for it.

    Long glass storefront. North side of Hwy 5 about midway between the traffic light and Delancer Cable.
    You can't miss it.
