Hi

Get them from your dentist. He/she will know which ones are for you.

Hi

Well if they are presciption drugs you will have to see a medic in LV to get them. Check out your insurance to make sure you are covered. The states are not known for their cheap medical care are they!

You will need a prescription from a medical provider to get antibiotics in the US. Antibiotics are not an OTC (over the counter) medication.

So if you have a "flare up" you will need to visit a medical office and be seen by a medical provider. If they deem antibiotics necessary they will then write you a prescription to take to the pharmacy.

Visit to urgent care will cost you about $50-80. Make sure to tell the doc you don't have insurance for the Rx. Old generic antibiotics can cost only $10 while newer name brand antibiotics can cost hundreds.

Hi Diane, suggest you make an appointment to see your gp and explain your concerns, say you are off to the US and are worried about being hit with a big bill for treatment. I'm sure your gp will be more understanding. Take your antibiotics in your hand luggage, you just never know. Hope you have a really fab time.

Minute Clinic inside CVS drugstores has NP's or PA's on staff who can examine you & prescribe an antibiotic if needed. There other "doc-in-the-box" clinics around as well. We have an abundance of exemplary health care choices here in the States. Minute Clinic costs $79-89 USD for a minor illness visit. Here is their address:

Inside CVS/pharmacy #3210

Have a great trip!

MinuteClinics at CVS practice some of the worst medicine anywhere. You're pretty much better off taking your money, putting it in a pile, and lighting it on fire.

Seriously, there is not such thing as a free lunch. If you have a bona fide medical problem, either see a medical professional before you travel who can make APPROPRIATE plans, or accept the fact that sometimes, life costs money.

I've had fine medicine practiced at CVS

It's not brain surgery to prescribe $4 worth of amoxicillin for a tooth abscess.
