I was wondering about Cambodia's drug laws. I have read a few reviews but they have been asking about recreational drug use. My question is am I allowed to take my prescribed medication with me or will I be refused entry or worse jail? My medication is prescribed by my doctor and he would give me a letter explaining the medication. My medication is Valium,methadone and mitrazpine. I had no problem last year while visitingÂ Thailand and actually got OTC Valium. And had no problems with customs either in Thailand or back home in UK. Please can someone help answer this question as I would like to visit Cambodia early in 2014. Thanks in advance.
Arriving in Cambodia by air might involve having to show that you are legally prescribed the drugs, but I imagine you will be fine in Cambodia if you had no problems in Thailand. If you are arriving by land from Thailand, as many do, you are unlikely to be searched or be made show your prescriptions.
Thanks for the information mixxat. One more question about this, you said you don't need a proscription. So if I decide to stay longer than my meds last can I reload my meds there without to much hasstle. ie.Do I need to slip a local doctor a few notes for a legal prescription(i had to do that in Thailandbut it was worth it.I did well.nuff said) or can I get my meds OTC? Any information would be greatly received.
Just because I am on medication, why can't I sort myself out in the tropics. It worked for me in Thailand but fell off the wagon in Holland. So why mess with a system that works for me. No chills in the tropics.
No prescription is required

Thanks for that vbeck. So if I do run out of my medication I can get it in Cambodia? All of it, Valium and even methadone with out seeing a local doctor? I really need this to be true because running out of my meds is not an option and I need to get away for at least a month and if it's true that I can get my meds legally in Cambodia then I can stay longer. Anyone who knows this to be true let me know, facts not hear say. Thanks.
