Getting medicine

I forgot to pack medicine (birth control) on my trip could I obtain it at a pharmacy in town? If so which pharmacy would I have the best chance at getting it at? We know very little Spanish and are worried about the communication difficulty

You can get it at a pharmacy in La Fortuna. Just write down the name of the one that you use and give it to the pharmacist. You could also Google the brand you use to see if there is a Spanish name for it. If it has a generic equivalent, write that down also.
