Though finding a pharmacy may be easy, finding English speaking staff in pharmacies is not. If you’re fortunate, you will find a pharmacy that keeps a bilingual medical directory or has some staff that speaks a few words of English (but not any medical terms).

Fortunately many Chinese medications have the drug’s generic name in English on their box, but the directions and precautions will be all in Chinese. When you do find the medication you need, make sure to take the box with you the next time you visit the pharmacy in order to make the process easier for yourself.
