    Default Duane Read or Walgreens Drugstores.

    Are there any places to buy the king size bottles of asprins and other medicines or is that only something I can get in the USA or Canada.

    Sometimes you can find them in Price Mart in both Santiago and Santo Domingo. That is the only place I have seen it. Also, ask your friendly pharmacist if they can order it in for you. SOmetimes they can access things they don't normally carry. I have a great guy I go to in Costambar for unusual needs.....

    Default "PRICE MART"has "some" stuff in large bottles.

    But,I order "on-line",from CVS.com.I have them ship to "EPS" in Miami Fla.
    They have everything I need,plus perscriptions too.I get their brand of,"Tylenol",Ibuprofen,Excedrin,Vitamins/minerals,hydocortizone creams,antibiotic creams,you name it!Free shipping to Miami for orders over $50. "Customs charges about 100 pesos per order.I usually spend about $100 US.I just got my "Vitamin/mineral" 260 caps,1/2 off! $5.00 each! 500 ibuprofen for $10. 500 "tylenol $10.
    "Walmart" has a good site that includes "Drugs"too.
    I used to go to Boston at least once a year to spend up to $500 at CVS,now I order from here.CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC

    Thanks guys, I wasn't sure. I went to the drugstore in NYC two days ago and bought $50 worth of items to bring down to have in my apartment. I got the 300 pills of asprin for $9.99. A great deal.

    Default I have never ordered "Perscription" medicine "on-line",

    Just go to the cvs website,enter what you want,and I'm sure it will tell you what you need to do. CC

    CVS even uses plastic bags filled with "air" to fill the empty space in the box they send!!Pay less for shipping!!

    JD can they handle a prescription written here in the Dominican??? I"ve been to the website and tried ordering but I am getting stuck regarding the doctors prescription....


    THanks for any insight you can offer.

    To answer the other question, there are many prescriptions not available here. Anyone coming to visit for a long time or to live should check out their standard prescriptions ahead of time. Also there are many many supplements and brands not available here.
