Default 24 hour pharmacies in Dubai

It's not exactly great when you get woken up by a hacking cough at 3am in the morning. It's even worse when you realise you've got no idea where any 24 hour pharmacies are.

For future reference, can anyone tell me where they are? I was looking for a cough syrup to try and sooth my cough, but the best thing I could find in the 24 supermakets was Vicks Vapor Rub. That helped, but nowhere near as much as a cough syrup would have. Even if it doesn't have codiene in it.

Haha. I did. But the problem is, a lot of the more unscrupulous pharmacies have "24 hour pharmacy" in their search engine optimisation tags. Which means they appear in the search, when they aren't actually 24 hours a day.

New one next to Shooters Pool Cafe, opposite Mag 218(?) at the Dubai end of the Marina. Says 24 hours on the door, but I can't verify if it actually is...

However, most convenience stores sell dunkies, which I'm sure is what you really wanted at 3 in the morning. Most sell lube, too, although I'm told mustard oil is both slippery and provides a faint tingle...

Haha. No, I was genuinely after cough medicine. Ended up going to Boots at 9am. The stuff I bought has a codine substitute, but has the side effect of 'making you drowsy'. I found it put me to sleep for an hour.

And I have a supply of dunkies.

Is this a serious thread?

Please can someone tell me of a pharmacy that ISN'T 24-hour???

Every one I know (and there are plenty) is open round the clock, with the obvious exception of those inside malls.
