    Hi,
    I am currently in Thailand and am having great difficulty in getting my prescribed Fentanyl Patches. I have been to a hospital and they have to get a license to stock which they tell me could take months to get.
    I brought 3 months supply with me but wish to stay longer. Can anyone advise where I can buy Fentanyl or even morphine sulphate without a lot of problem within Asia.Tramadol is not an option.

    I am happy to go and see a doctor/ hospital for a prescription and have paperwork from home to prove medication.

    At the moment the only alternative I can see is to fly back to UK and get another 3 months supply but that would be a hassle.

    I don't mind hopping on a plane if anyone can advise where I won't have a problem obtaining.

    I recall from years ago Sri Lanka was no problem and I have heard India is similar, anyone have recent experience or can anyone one confirm or suggest somewhere nearer to Thailand ?

    Any assistant gratefully received.
    David
