over the counter

oral rehydration therapy. yup. kind of like gatorade but about 5 cents a packet. should have had this handy, they told us in orientation, but until you really need it, you don't look for it. there was even a dialogue about it in our Bangla book. apparently it's one of those really important concepts here...

So according to Wikipedia, ORS (oral rehydration solutions) are available from UNICEF and mentions Bangladesh as an example of significant success with this fairly simple product.

And while I was at the pharmacy, I got some medicine for a burn that hadn't healed. No prescriptions necessary here.
