Thank you for your question.

I am Dr. SH and will be helping you out with your concerns.

I am sorry to hear about your problem.

The only way to get a valid script of an antibiotic that would be accepted by a pharmacy in UK would be to get it from a GP or a doctor there.

Online scripts are not valid and will not be accepted unfortunately.

Let me know if you have more questions.
Please do submit a rating when you are done.

Search for a general practitioner (GP) on the internet.

I am an american, will they help me?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 11 months ago.

Yes of course they will help you.

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 11 months ago.

If you cannot get into a GP early enough it is well worth visiting the hospital emergency. Even though the waiting time may be a few hours but it is well worth it.

What time are you going to Venice?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
my flight leaves at 8am, so i am up now getting ready to take a train to gatwick. this is all very miserable and im scared i wont be able to find help.
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 11 months ago.

Hmm. what time would you be reaching Venice?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
my plane lands at 11:50am, i just want to know exactly where to go once i land
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 11 months ago.

What you can do right now, since you do not have time, is to get some cranberry juice sachets and drink as much of that as you can.

When you reach Venice then you can go straight to a doctor there.

You can do a bit of searching on google beforehand.

You can go straight to the hospital emergency or outpatient to get a script which would be the best option.

Just find a hospital nearest to the airport on google.

i cant speak italian. im panicking. how do i tell them what i need? will this cost me thousands of dollars?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 11 months ago.

No it will not cost thousands of dollars

Just use the google translator

It is really good.

Download the offline app of google translator and write English on one side and italian on the other side and show it to the doctor.

They may also have interpreters as well in the hospital.

will they accept my insurance if it is from the us? Cigna?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 11 months ago.

I do not think that they will accept US insurance.

Sorry for my late response as I was away for a while.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
do you know how insurance would work for me?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 11 months ago.

Well, what you can do is, you can call your insurance up and ask from them.

That would be the best way to go about it as far as I am concerned.

Can you please rate me before we proceed.

Kindest regards
