    I was able to easily get some antibiotics over the counter in Thailand without any problem. However, you need to be aware that some pharmacies are known to sell counterfeits - so you want to pick your pharmacy carefully, especially for heart meds.

    Hopefully by bumping up this post, one of the TF'ers who live in Thailand will be able to give you more specific info.
