Fentanyl & other Pain meds

Posted by axact on 10/12/2010 at 10:40

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.
