doctors here will never prescribe without seeing a patient. it unethical to issue a prescription even tho it might mean all the difference betwene life and death for that patient.

but if you are so inclined your best bet is to call the drug company that makes that drug and order via them. Sometimes they will ship it foriegn if their lawyers tell them its okay. mostly they know the laws, and likely they wont ship either. Sorry.

I've been in this situation before trying to buy drug for someone abroad, cuz abroad they dont make this drug. but it didn't work. But for the disease that you mention, I am sure turkey has some version of generic drug that treats it. I was lookign for a drug that is very very very specific condition that only 2 companies in the world make.

To the best of my knowledge, there is no 'trimix' drug. Trimix is a compounded solution of Papaverine, Regitine, and Alprostadil. The mixture of these varies somewhat for different men. Many men experience some pain from the Alprostadil, and use a bi-mix of Papaverine & Regitine. All of the drugs are generic, and should be available at a compounding pharmacy.

What did YOUR doctor say when you asked him about a prescription?

Here is an idea for you and your doctor to try.
Perhaps you can try ordering TRIMIX GEL from American Pharmacy Solutions??
I looked over the Trimix-Gel website, and the APS website too, and they did not have any explicit mention of any mailing restrictions (although it could be so obvious that they can't ship out of the country that they did not even bother to mention it!).
But you never know!
So the doc just faxes the prescription .. then you call them after a day or so and order from that prescription over the phone with credit card etc. You have nothing to lose if they then say they can't ship it out of the country.
( I don't suppose you have a relative in the USA to ship it to??). It is a harmless drug of course -- not a narcotic or anything dangerous so I doubt it is on any federal watch list at customs either in the USA or in Turkey.

As mentioned elsewhere Trimix Gel is expensive per dose -- around 25 USD. But at least it is not perishable at room temps, so should be easily shippable long distances.

Be sure to report back here with your findings and success or failure for future 'users'.

Maybe I missed something, but isn't Trimix available locally? Why are you wanting a US version? What site are you talking about when you say 'But in its site it says a doctor from USA must write a priscription'? Maybe I'm confused, or it isn't available anywhere in Turkey?
