I know some questions have been asked on here before and met with some resistances but I'm going to ask anyway. Is there a specific pharmacy I should go to in Phnom Phen in order to get Ritalin? I have a note from my doctor in the US explaining that I am and have been prescribed for over 15 years. I also have a picture of a prescription writing for me by a doctor in Siem Reap although it does not have my name on it so I worry it will do more harm than good.

If you want to be sure, contact Pharmacy de la Gare, but I think JA is right. A lot of stuf available over the counter, but strangely some stuff (even some antibiotics) are not allowed.
I have found pharmacie de la gare is a shadow of its former self. pharmacie Ponlieou on west side of street 51 seems to have almost everything (usually european manufacture)
Having said that i see to remember a post s few years back saying ADHD meds are not available here. Possibly in Thailand as you pass through, $25 for a prescription for the doctor
It's my understanding that in general, 'downers' - drugs which have sedative properties are the easy to get get ones but 'uppers' - drugs which make you lively and potentially unstable, are the the ones which are banned.

Do you mean near intersection of st 136? I see on google map Pharmacie Ponleu Preah Chan or do you mean different part of st51?
Northwest corner of the junction of 51 and 136. They have 1 or 2 good English speakers. Have been dealing with them for years. If you are concerned about the coutnry of origin specify that, and they usually have a european branded option for common medicines like antibiotics, blood pressure, diabetes, stomach upsets. They do a German brand of most generics. They all have "denk" in the name, so there Zanta is Ranidenk.
