Where did he say he'd be spending his last days in Phnom Penh?
Thanks, at least, for giving some on topic info before launching into your typical, invasive rabbit hole, phuketrichard.

Thing is Brody people come here, to the forum and ask information of the people here now, or know of the country, and more about the question, whatever it maybe, in this case, medication available, that being of pain relief.
Like he quotes and answers - I am not looking to get into trouble or cause problems. Some new food enjoy the weather and manage my pain. Very little time left for me now and just wanted to know would I be able to get what I need. Things are so strict here and it's nearly impossible to get the help you need. I think John and Richard maybe reading the lines correct and have both given good answers of what they see the situation.
Then the OP says -Would hate to travel all the way there only to find that my research is out of date.

I would say Jibberwibber we are free men to make our choice, I hope Sir you find your pain relief wherever you can. But there are a few things to consider, if I have any pains I would like a quiet surrounding, Phnom Penh is not ideal in that respect. Being out of date! Good food? No, most is awful and could have possibility to kill you.
Always "hope" but never "expect".

I will be visiting phnom penh in the new year, very excited.

Unfortunately I suffer with chronic pain and insomnia, Sadly not much time left to travel for me.

I am looking to stay for 2-3 months for my first try, very nice hotel. I will need to buy medication during my stay there.

I have read the pharmacies stock a wide range of medications and have a relaxed attitude. Is this still the case? What are the strongest pain/insomnia "genuine" medications you can buy over the counter?

Are they happy to recieve cash payments?

Would you kind people have any recommendations/advice.

Many thanks.

Martin
Street 51. you can buy dicodeine around $20 (made in france) and Stilnox sleeping tablents (france i think, german version is called stillnoct)$12.50 a box. Codeine you cannot drink with but Stilnox has no adverse reactions. Be aware dicodeine is about twice the strength of ordinary codeine. No prescriptions necessary. I would be wary of tramadol. It can cause seizures in some people apparently sothey don'y use it in the uk, so my gp told me
