Sick in France? No Problem!
David answered a dozen questions and swears he spent more time with the pharmacist than he ever does with his physician back in Tucson. After the pharmacist got all her answers: Is your nose stuffy or runny? Is your chest congested? Do you have a fever? Any stomach problems? she prescribed cough drops and a cough medicine to help him sleep. Another pharmacy gave him "Actifed Jour & Nuit" which has white blister-pack tablets for day and a blue one for night. This Friday, just four days after getting sick, he is feeling almost completely better.
Never hesitate to ask a French pharmacist for help when you're sick. I consider them the equivalent of our American Urgent Care, with the added bonus of being free. You'll find them everywhere in France. Just look for the neon green cross.
