Ativan is known out there due to the Ativan Date Rape gang using it to well... Date rape people. So that's definitely going to be controlled... If it's even possible to get out there at all?
Yep I can relate to and understand your concerns on changing or availability of medications. The vast majority of "Branded" medications sold here are from Australia and India. So with that they are of good quality and a doctor can undoubtedly prescribe the right one(s) all be in under a different name. Also here, the vast majority of medications are must less than there at home.
