We were at UASD in Puerto Plata across from the Free Trade Zone today and noticed they had a pharmacy on the campus grounds. It turned out to be a Promesecal office. They don't have a huge number of medicines, but what they do have a very reasonably priced. The link above has the medications they carry.

The UASD campus is actually quite nice.

PUCMM in Santiago also has one of these Promese offices. They provide a needed service.

Do you know if any of the Promesecals carry this med?

1404 Amlodipina Tableta 10 mg RD$ 0,50

And if you have the locations of the other locations in Puerto Plata, that would be great

A small fraction of what you would pay in the US

Thank you DV8 for the list of locations.

Correct. If a medicine you need is on the list the price is VERY reasonable.

There is also another one by the STD clinic and the fire station in POP but the one at the hospital has the best variety

i hear the quality of those meds is as low as the price :)
but i have never tried any myslef so far. i keep on forgetting there is one of those cheap pharmacies close to where i live...
i can tell tell you, however, that the labs making cheap medicine are exactly the same as those that sell in pharmacies at a lot higher price. the actual profit margin on medicine is not that big so who the heck makes money on this? and i do not believe that a large dominican lab will sell at no profit...
