i just have a short query about medication at the pharmacys in thailand
i understand you dont need a prescription from a doctor,is that correct?

the problem is that my g.p can only precribe me for a max of 2 months but i am planning on travelling for about 9-12 months.
i had a bad motorbike accident about 2 years ago and i have bouts were i need heavyduty painkillers.

what im asking is will there be a problem getting such medication over the counter or will i have to go to the hospital??
thanks for any help in this matter

No need for scripts in Thailand. If the chemist stocks what you're after they'll sell it to you.
