I was born in the Philippines, and I rightfully should have use of a house to vacation there during Winter. Anyway, this past 2016 Winter I got 1 years worth of Seroquel and Akiden to avoid going to American Psychologists and Walgreens. American Psychologists - bleh, they don't provide feedback to solve your problems, they just provide a drug prescription... Anyway, each 200mg Seroquel Pill only cost me 98 pesos [=$2], wereas it'd cost $18 at Walgreens.

Oh, I also had a rear molar root canal extraction and an infected wisdom molar extraction for 12,000 pesos total [$240]. This probably would have cost $1200 in American Dental Offices.

My cousin's cousin from America is a fat lady and she goes yearly for Manila Liposuctions.

I hear Thailand is great for sex change operations, because they specialize on ladyboys, BUT I'M NOT INTO THAT. Maybe that where Caitlyn Jenner should have been operated.

Have you seen the youtube videos on awesome Korean Plastic Surgery? It's amazing on how they turn ugly people into pretty or handsome people.

How about you? What have you heard or done about Medical Tourism?

Seroquel is a perfect example of the sort of drug that you can save money on by doing this, but absolutely shouldn't. It's an antipsychotic and you should be monitored to ensure you're using the optimal dose, for side effects, so that alternatives can be considered as your situation evolves, and to make sure it's remaining effective for you. I know for me, that my health is too important to take unnecessary risks like that just to save a few bucks.

It is fairly common to see (freeloading) overseas Taiwanese travelling back for surgeries because it's a lot cheaper.

I've heard about cheap operations in Morroco and Tunisia (liposuction, breast surgery, etc)

Also that dentists are cheaper in Hungary, Turkey, Tunisia (teeth withening etc)
