@danielr , she’s talking about a prescription issued from her doctor in HK, not TW.
@islaehh , this is a tricky one. Tbh, being here for so many years and having experience with doctors, prescribed meds and things… my way about this would be to try at any pharamasist with that prescription paper, but not to have any high hopes…
It could be a case where you’d have to explain it again to a TW doctor here – explaining your back story and condition and prescription given to you in HK.
Im pretty confident that they’ll just prescribe you the very same thing – but coming from them. They have to see a lot of pateincts – so it wont be a drawn out conversation – they just wanna satisfy you, and then see you out for the next patient.
However, at least it’ll be a one-off appointment with a DR that speaks English (they pretty much all do), then you’ll get the TW equivalent prescription you’d want to get what you need at any pharmasist or at the clinic itself.
