I have a hard to fill prescription. I am looking for an English speaking pharmacist to discuss this with. Any help?

I have it in Spanish. The prescription is from a doctor here, but I will have to get it ordered in cause it is kind of rare.

you don't need an english speaking pharmacist for that purpose since you have a RX in spanish so just go to the most convenient pharmacy for you.
on the other hand i found the guadalajara[chapala] and wallmart pharmas kinda useless if they ain't got it in stock.

Farmacia Guadalajara in Ajijic. If they don't have it they will order it for you. They have for me and kept it in stock after that!

The pharmacist at Farmacia Christina speaks English. She is will do whatever it takes to help you and she is very knowledgeable.

I second Polo. Just saw him today. I feel confident that if he doesn't have it, he'll try and get it or steer you in the right direction. His ingles may just be better than mine. I think he found it amusing that I started out with my garbage espanol. He has generic polysporin.

I just had a couple of prescriptions filled at Farmacia Benavidez in Chapala just south of Soriana. The pharmacist spoke English. I got home with a bunch of little boxes of pills and realized I had no idea how many or how often. AND, once I got in the car, the Mr. asked me how much my bill was and I realized I had peeled off (3) 500 peso bills and gotten very little change back. (shut up-Senior moment happened)
I called the pharmacy and the nice pharmacist went over everything again, nicely and slowly (and in English and Spanish) and the price of each box and said he would print out another recibo for me and put it in an envelope with my name on it etc. etc. Great customer service there today.

Thanks everybody. FYI I went to Farmacia Christina. A young man there had some English and together we figured it out and got it ordered.
