Lorazepam is the "real' name for Valium. Yes, it is available here in the large, nationwide drugstores. But you are right on a need for an Rx. That drug does require an Rx. to buy it.
Once found at a pharmacy here, don't assume that or other drugs are available at ALL branches of the same pharmacy all of the time. Just does not happen here.
So what I'm saying here is that once you locate a pharmacy that does carry your meds, visit with the store manager and request they constantly order and keep them in stock for you. Even that does not always work but it's the best option...
