    Help I Need Information

    I am coming to Bangkok to the see if I can get medical help I am trying to get someone at bumrungrad hospital to work on me . I got butchered by a plastic surgeon in the US and am almost bedridden and now all most out of money .

    I need strong pain medication and it is always hard to get here in the states with no health insurance . When I arrive in Bangkok can I but strong narcotic pain meds over the counter at pharmacies or will I need to get prescriptions from the hospital . Difficulty in getting pain meds while i try to find a Dr. to take on my case will make like almost unbearable ... if I know that when I get there I will be able to get pain meds asap it will help the fear I have of going there and having to deal with this aspect of the next difficult chapter of what I am going through. I need to know if I can find pharmacies that will sell me strong pain medication without a prescription . I am not some kind of a druggie looking to get high I am seriously hurt and going to Bangkok to see if I can find real help as medical help in the US is out of the question now that I have no health insurance ... Thanks

    No "legitimate" pharmacy will sell pain killers OTC.
    I'm sure they can be found, but the person selling them is willing to break the law.

    BNH Hospital, on Covent Road, between Silom and Sathorn, might be worth a visit for a consultation.
    You will probably be talking with a specialist with 1/2 hour of entering the building.

    Given your history, he/she will probably be willing to prescribe what is needed to relieve your pain.
    Plus, you can judge if they might be a more reasonable option to Bumrungrad, possibly the most expensive in BKK.

    BTW, if you are fleeing American healthcare, Bumrungrad is operated under American management!

    I read that prescriptions were not really needed ... but it may have been written years ago

    just go see a doctor and get a script..no big deal and you'll know what your getting then... if the pharmacist will sell you illegally he may just give you what ever the hell he has left over going out of date..
