    Default Nexium & Symbicort Turbuhaler - Prescription Required

    Does anyone have any idea if the drug Nexium (for acid reflux) is available in the DR, particularly on the North Coast (Sosua or Cabarete area preferably)?

    Also Symbicort Turbuhaler for asthma?

    And if so...and idea on the cost for either? And recommendations on where to go to get a prescription?

    inhalers [advair and others...] are common for asthma

    Yup. It's prilosec, every bit as effective as Nexium...and an OTC drug.

    Sam's Club and WalMart have very inexpensive omeprazole in 6 week quantities. I have folks bring down a couple of boxes.
