Hello -

Unfortunately, in the United States - pharmacies will need a valid prescription from a US licensed doctor to obtain this type of medication.

That of course, will not be helpful for you, so you may have to look at getting the medication from another country. India is a large supplier of medications for the world, and you may be able to obtain some medication in that manner.

Unfortunately this is not an issue that this online information service can help to address, as there is simply no way for you (to legally) obtain this medication directly for your dad in the US.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
