  1. If you want to be able to chat in english,you might consider someone in the Philippines.
  2. I used sportsbook when I lived there but that was 4 years ago.
  3. Walmart is 11 miles from home and Costco is 21,so I time my 90 day drug purchase with my monthly Costco shopping spree.Plus its 2 miles from the Guzzi dealer,so its win-win.And of course you can refill prescription over the automated order ine,so no wait whe you arrive.And you don't need to be a Costco member I was told but you will pay just a bit more though. Well the price mentioned above at Costco is somewhat cheaper than the Thailand price (amlodipine), but if you can be clobbered by a price 6x higher by going to the shop next door, Walmart, which is being cited as the cheap place to g
  4. I lived in Mexico for 3 years,as recently as 2 years ago this month.Prices have increased there and now a prescription is required for very many drugs that never required one previously.You can still find off the beaten path ones that will sell to you w/o a prescription but you will pay even more.
  5. When in lived in Jomtien in '08-'09,I had to buy my 10mg amlodipine for hypertension and the price was several times higher than what I currently pay here at Costco.I was shocked.
  6. Costco has the best prices for many prescription drugs.Costco charges under $6 for a 90 day supply of 10mg amlodipine.I asked the Walmart pharmacist what their price was-nearly 6x! I asked if they would price match like some pharmacies-no way was the reply.As the OP stated,many states,including Florida,offer a large amount of generics for $4 for a 30 day supply.
  7. Gary,at Costco,I pay $5.75 for a 90 day supply of 10 mg amlodipine.A price that can't be matched anywhere.
  8. Yes.Only difference is ours is dispensed in a container whereas in Thailand,they are sold in blister packs.
  9. Start with 10mg of Amoldipine which is generic for Norvasc.I have been taking it for nearly a decade.It works.And BTW,I am in great physical shape.Gary is right-its the silent killer. A little back story.About 18 months before I retired in 2005,I was scheduled for rotator cuff surgery.I was in great shape.In the hospital at 7am.BP taken-210/108! Are you kidding me! Wait 5 mins-its higher! Usually stress raises BP but this is literally off the charts.They thought I was having a heart attack right there and began asking me the questions they ask heart attack victims.I felt fine.So no surgery
  10. I lived in Mexico 3 years and Thailand 15 months after retirement and have visited Phils several times and have to say I prefer Pinays.
  11. Yes apparently we stole all your jokes.
  12. Funny When Barack Obama met with Queen Elizabeth II, the Queen of England , he asked her… "Your Majesty, how do you run such an efficient government? Are there any tips you can give me?" "Well," said the Queen, "The most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people." Obama frowned, and then asked, "But how do I know if the people around me are really intelligent?" The Queen took a sip of champagne. "Oh, that's easy; you just ask them to answer an intelligent riddle, watch" The Queen pushed a button on her intercom. "Please send Tony Blair in here, would
  13. No,it was mine.Guess MM isn't as fond of me as I thought. Hey MM,are there any American moderators beside yourself?
  14. Too funny While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his role as our president. The old rancher said, 'Well, ya know, Obama is a "Post Turtle''. Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a 'post turtle' was. The old rancher said, 'When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'. The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain. "You know he di
  15. Too funny-shared it with my mexican friends: José and Carlos are beggars. They beg in different areas of town. Carlos begs for the same amount of time as José, but collects only about $8.00 or $9.00 a day. José brings home a suitcase full of ten-dollar bills every day. He drives a Mercedes, lives in a mortgage-free house, and has a lot of money to spend. "Hey, amigo," Carlos says to José, "I work just as long and hard as you do, so how come you bring home a suitcase full of ten dollar bills every day?
