Although the selection of popular pharmaceutical drugs available in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City pharmacies is good, you would be wise to bring a supply of medicines and contraceptives from your home country to tide you over until you find a reliable chemist.If you do need a pharmacy, write down the exact medicine you require for the pharmacist.
Depending on the drugs you require, some pharmacies will even refill your empty containers without validating a new prescription. If you are leery of local pharmacies, the medical clinics listed above have their own pharmacies but some require a prescription. Note that feminine hygiene products can be found in supermarkets.
