Medical Exams – A caller explained that the civil surgeon who completed the medical exam used the wrong form and then wanted to charge an indigent refugee to reprocess the paperwork on the correct form. What recourse does an applicant have if this occurs?

USCIS Response: Customers should notify the Director of their local office when they have a complaint about a civil surgeon.

Where does this apply. When buying? I was just there and didn't have any problems getting Hydrocodone. Maybe if it's in a different form.
Surely you can get Morphine. Don't know about combined with sulfate.

When would this list affect one of us?

If you got it with prescription then your fine if not then that's a different story. I know Philippines sucks when it comes to regulating some drugs because some Drug store they don't mind dispensing the controlled med without prescription.

Under list B, is that all banned now? Even from a doctor prescribing it? I am confused. I will be in PI soon to live and 'clonzepam' (anti anxiety, PTSD) med is something I very much need to live normally.

I have read that sometimes drug stores in PI sell fake medicine/pills that could kill you. Is this true? I am really scared of getting fake meds/pills, even when prescribed by a doctor. Do you know of the most reliable drug stores, and also the drug stores to avoid (because of cases of fake meds that killed before)??

Most drugs are available with a local doctors prescription, but you may have to settle for a similar drug. Below is the law on illegal drugs.

Republic Act 9165

Travelers should also pay attention to how to bring your legal drugs into the country while on vacation or when moving to the Philippines.
Bringing Medicine into the Philippines

Over the counter drugs are available in pharmacies or drug stores in the country. However, if visitors insist on bringing their own prescriptive drugs, they may do so but only in quantities sufficient for the duration of their stay in the country.
Visitors taking prescription drugs (tablets and ampoules) should bring a letter from their physician stating the condition for which they are receiving treatment and the dosage. The amount of drugs brought into the country should also be sufficient for the duration of the visit. For those who are travelling onward to another country, they are advised that separate quantity of drugs should be sealed and declared again before exiting the country.

You can look up most available Philippine drugs here Mercury Drug
