Where to Buy Drugs in the Philippines?

Need to score some aspirin? Ibuprofen? Where can I get Drugs in Manila when I'm a foreigner new to the city?

Mercury Drugstore is a nationwide well-known pharmacy empire in the Philippines. They have stores in every Philippine city and major hospitals.

The pharmacy is also a convenience store which sells junk food, beverages, breads, candy, personal grooming items and toiletries.



This is their trademark logo, the Roman God Mercury carrying his staff with the two entwined snakes, a symbol widely used in the medical field. Underneath written in Tagalog are the words "Nakakasiguro ang gamot ay laging bago" which translates "Our Medicine is always brand new" or "Our Drugs are always Fresh". Its just a guarantee they won't sell you expired stuff.

Mercury Drugstore is the prime drugstore for patients in need of specialized and regulated medications. Just present your doctor's RX or Doctor's orders with the proper dosages stated at the counter. They also honor Senior Citizen discounts.
