    I've ran out of anti-malarials I've brought from back home and have been looking around different pharmacies in Phnom Penh, however none of them have the ones I've been prescribed (Lariam). If anyone has come across any, I'd really appreciate it if you would let me know.

    Any pharmacy I would imagine but if you have problems try the two big ones.The 24 hour pharmacy next to Calmette hospital or the Barang pharmacy on Monivong on the corner opposite the Railway station.

    Thanks for your reply, I checked out both of those pharmacies yesterday with no luck. I've another day to look around, hopefully I can find it somewhere.

    Really? The reason maybe is on this page,

    That would explain it, from the map on that site it looks like I've already spent 3 weeks in the lariam resistant part of the country.

    One of the U-care pharmacies I visited today said that they usually have it in stock but are out at the moment.
