Availability of Prescription drugs

We are moving out to Ovacik in June. My husband is currently taking tablets for blood pressure and I am taking the mini pill, Micronor(350mcg norethisterone). I have looked on the various links to lists of drugs available in Turkey but have been unable to trace the drugs we need. Can anyone help us to find out if we will be able to get them over there?

Re: Availability of Prescription drugs

Norithisterone is available in 5mg here
PRIMOLUT-N 5 MG 30 TABLET its listed as costing 9-10tl for 30.

I had the same problem when I moved here but luckily was able to get everything I needed cheaper than on prescription in UK. I'm happy to go into a chemist and ask for you on Monday, they look them up and tell you what is available or what alternatives there are. If that will help just let me know what you need.

Re: Availability of Prescription drugs

Try looking them up on the following site

ilacabak ; Turkish vademecum, drug prices, atc classification

You can use either the drug brand name, or the generic name of the drug constituent. Norethisterone does come up on its own and also with oestregen, however the "mini" 350mcg doesnt seem to be there.

The best thing is to ask your local pharmacist in Turkey. The one we use is very helpful and will get anything he hasnt in stock cargoed to him from wholesalers in Izmir or Istanbul overnight as part of the great service they offer.

Blood pressure medications have come down in price dramatically over the years...six years ago they were 100TL or so for a month's supply. Now the same pack of tablets are 6TL.
