Help Please

by Nicoljane

My sister went to Kos 28th of this month and is still there for another week. She has forgotten her medication. Anti depressants.
I posted them out to her on the 1st of august..after having to get a new precription from her doctor and sent them out to her on the 1st of August by courier service..next day delivery DHL..today Saturday 4th they still have not arrived..last tracking for the item on line was:
02/08/2007 21:30 Athens - Greece Transferred through Athens - Greece
I have also contacted the company..and they know as much as I do.
Would anyone know..if it would be possible for my sister to buy this medication in Kos..they are Clomipramine(Anafranil). Her husband as visited a few chemists but they do not speak English. The rep isn't much good either..
They are staying in Kos Town.
I would be very gratful for any advise at all. Besides don't leave home without your medication. :o(
thanks in advance.

As psychologist I can say that vacations is exactly for fighting depression. If you are dependent on pils, it is the best timing for getting rid of such dependencies. Trying so hard to send her these pils can only destroy her vacations and make her more dependent on the pils. Better forget it. If she really needs it, she can have an advice from a local doctor.

Why not go and see a doctor?

I forgot to take enough of one of my medicine and had no problem in showing the doctor the empty tablet "sheet" while on vacation far away.
Got a prescription for what I needed but since they didn't have excact what I used I got a substitut product (as you also do back home when the "real" one you use is sold out, or you have to buy a cheaper than you have used).

Good luck :)

The situation seems quite strange. My experience says that pharmacy personnel in Greece speaks English quite well. If you want to buy a medicine in a foreign country you have to know it's proper name - not the commercial one, if you know what I mean.

Even not speaking English, pharmacists understand chemical names! However, in advanced countries you cannot buy most drugs without a prescription, so assuming that she also didn't take a prescription (which is a good thing to do in case of losing/forgetting medications), the best thing to do if DHL is unable to deliver shortly is to go to see a local psychiatrist (medical doctor) or GP who can prescribe either the same or a substitute drug, which she can then purchase locally.

Or you go and get the fax number of the pharmacy and have the prescription faxed there. Make sure it states not the name but the content of the pills (clomipramine in your case). The pharmacist should then be able to give you the equivalent in greece. even if it is on prescription only.

Travel Tips for Kos

ASKLEPIOS

by LysDor

To the east are ruins of the temple of Apollo (remaining pillars).

On the highest level are the foundations and columns of a Doric temple to Asklepios which was the most sacred in the sklepeion.

The name comes through ancient times, from Asclepius, the son of Apollo and Koronis. As through the myth he learned medicine from the Centaur Hiron, he lately became known among the people as a god of medicine and they believed he could heal both gods and mens. Asclepeia are refered in history as sacred hospitals and the Asclepieion of Kos was the best and most famous of its time.

Internet cafe in Kos Town

by SWFC_Fan about Platinum Kaffe Bar

Platinum Kaffe Bar was my Internet cafe of choice for keeping in touch with VT during my visit to Kos in May 2006.

Fast speed Internet access costs 3 Euros per hour (minimum charge 1.50 Euros), and is available on three computer terminals in the back of the bar.

As well as providing Internet access, the bar also has pool tables, video games, a large TV and of course an extensive drinks list (including soft drinks, beers, wines, spirits, cocktails, coffees, teas, hot chocolate and milkshakes). I used to order a large Coca Cola with ice (2 Euros) to accompany my VTing!

The staff are friendly (they used to give me a discount on my Internet bill after I'd been in there a couple of times), and lively pop music is played in the background.

If you just want to enjoy a relaxing drink, there are a host of tables outside in the sunshine!

The Xyston – Kos Town

by grayfo

The xytos was constructed originally in the 2nd century AD, it is the part of the ancient gymnasium that was covered by a roof, this was so that athletics could take place whatever the weather. Prior to any competition the athletes would cover their bodies in olive oil. A line of columns along the xytos has been restored and makes an impressive sight.

Kos

by peterdhduncan

Kos Town, the capital and largest town in Kos, is built around an attractive harbour which is dominated on one side by the remains of its medieval castle. There are numerous archaeological remains scattered around the town, and the 'Casa Romana', a large reconstructed Roman house, is particularly worth visiting.

There are plenty of touristy shops, bars and restaurants in its streets, and it has a colourful indoor market. We stopped at the Bittersweet Creperie for a light lunch.
