    Medication

    Advertisements



    If a student is on medication regularly/prn, there is only so much one can bring to the island. How do students deal with this? Do they have friends/family ship the medication? Is there a pharmacy near campus that is legit?

    Hundreds of views and not one reply?

    Bump for other people looking wondering the same thing.

    Dr. G (neuroscience) usually suggests asking your physician for a 6-month supply. For that matter he recommends taking a 6-month supply of anything you use on a daily basis and won't find easily / cheaply in Antigua. If you can't fit everything in your luggage, shipping can be an expensive, unreliable option. Having a family member visit and bring what you need (even coming along for registration) is a more efficient way of having more luggage space.

    Ask around. There are several "doctors" in town operating "clinics" out of their homes. For $20US, they'll prescribe you pretty much anything, no questions asked. hahahaha

    Not a bad option. Thanks!

    In all seriousness, is this possible?

    If you have a medication that is actually needed, such as BP or other medical conditions, you can easily find a doctor to prescribe you. If you are speaking of a study drug that you "need" and starts with an A, it is banned in Antigua and not available, so make adjustments for that.

    If people live in Antigua with medications, I'm sure you can, but if you need extra drugs that may facilitate your studying, you will need to make prior adjustments.

    Is it also banned on campus? Like, if caught with said medication, what would be the consequence?

    You should probably hide them in your rectum in a ziplock while going through customs. Good luck.
