Hi everybody,

could you advice me if it is possible to buy any drugs for malaria directly in Colombia, I mean in Bogota without a prescription?

Thansk for any suggestion.

They were easy to purchase a few years ago but I don't know the situation now.

I'm sure you realize there is zero malaria in Bogota and some of the medicine has so be started long before you enter the area with the malaria so purchasing it "on the spot" is useless.

Have fun, it's a fabulous country.

Cheers,
Terry
