Edit to update:

hsifyppah just informed me that you can buy this legally in Canada. Stoopid moron at Safeway told my daughter yesterday that it was prescription only.

Dumbasses! We will now go fetch some to make Jazzy's head stop exploding.

Are any of you headed up to Vancouver anytime soon?

Jazzy girl has been on a combination of a muscle relaxer - Robaxacet, which you can't get in the states, but is OTC in Canada, and Naproxen, which is OTC in the states but you can't get in Canada - for the last couple months to treat chronic headaches. She's been to her doctor multiple times, had blood tests, x-rays and finally, a couple weeks ago, she saw the neurologist. We're waiting for the appointment for the CAT scan or MRI - it's one of those, but I'm not sure which - I wasn't at the neurologist appointment with her and she can't remember him actually saying what kind of scan it would be.

Her doctor though she might have Occipital Neuralgia because she's described it as a spike piercing through her brain for the last few months. It sounds exactly like this.

In any case - she's out of Naproxen and we can't get more without a prescription. Which she could go and ask the doctor for, but it's a giant pain in the ass and I'm kicking myself for not thinking about grabbing a couple bottles when I was in Seattle.

So. Anyone popping up this way who might be willing to grab a few and let me pay you for them when you get here?

Good news, it's over the counter in BC now! Brand name aleve, also available as store brands at most chain pharmacies.

I called Safeway and they said it was prescription only! I asked specifically about Aleve!

Those dorks! It's been OTC for almost a year. The higher strengths are still Rx only, but you can just take more of the 222mg tabs if you already know your dose. I know for sure there's a cheap pharmasave brand. :) But hell, there's probably a freaking safeway store brandby now too. Mah eyes, I roll them at you, safeway...
