Availability of ThermaCare products in CR

I don't imagine this question has been asked here before ;)

My wife and I are traveling to CR next month. I want to find out whether Pfizer's ThermaCare products are easily available, say, over-the-counter in retail pharmacies. It turns out they have their own Czech website, and I can find them on at least one Prague pharmacy's website... but I'd like to be sure, since otherwise I'll have to pack two weeks' worth. Any ideas? Thanks!

The website you linked to says: "available in all good pharmacies". So, I assume that means they would be pretty easy to find. I did visit a couple of pharmacies while in Prague but wasn't looking for anything like this so I don't recall whether they had them or not. I'm sure any pharmacy would at least have something comparable, if not that exact brand name.

I've seen them here at the Pharmacy near Wenceslas Square. But they only had the lower back ones. Not sure which ones you need. And I think they were about $10 a package. So, I'd bring some if you know you need them. They also sell a similar Slovakian type here that my doctor recommended but they don't work at all so don't be talked into them if you go to the pharmacy :).
