In which Phnom Penh pharmacy can I score strong painkillers?

Postby asp » Fri Feb 19, 2016 6:46 pm

Just had a Moto accident and some rib connecting cartilage was broken. Since I am old this will take some time, if ever. I was thinking of Vicodin, but I am open to suggestions from others that have been similarly inflicted.

Please give me as accurate location and name of the pharmacy if possible. All the meds they offer In Kampong Cham are too weak to be effective.

You should be able to get 100mg tramadol in most pharmacies, I got asked 50 or 100 when I last went, no qualms. That's what my mate took after his traffic accident. Beware opiates are addictive.

Di-codin is available in the form of a little red pill.

Lovely little things in moderation .

I'd steer clear of Tramadol - if it does get more-ish and it quite often does; it can lead to severe seizures. Better to hit up the paracetamol and codeine, which is less likely to leave you with a habit (mainly because paracetamol overdoses are really unpleasant so you won't take enough for it to become habit forming).

You might also want to consider the "herbal" options available from most happy pizza joints which are a.) more fun and b.) 100% guaranteed not to turn you into an addict.

i seriously doubt that is was real. very very seldom see O anymore anywhere is se asia

just go in to the Rx's around the central market, tell them what happened and ask for what they can give you.
Always found them very helpful and Never met a bad guy ( or lady) there
I used Tramadol when i busted my collarbone ( in fact thats what the prescribed for me here in Thailand)

First, I had a couple of posts that didn't make it to my OP last night. Maybe they conflicted with other contributions. So, I'll take this chance now to offer my thanks for both your advice and reasonable concerns. I do not feel there's any danger of addiction since I am only interested in finding a narcotic which will relieve me of debilitating pain, not all pain which is an important clue to the bodies healing progress. In short I will take them only for a short duration and then intermittently. If no progress in pain relief occurs I will abandon them for another approach.
For me pot and hash are out of the question; I consider them more recreational than medicinal. Then there is for me more risk if I'm buying drugs from a totally uninformed tuk tuk driver than a partially uninformed and undereducated pharmacist. I've still got a fee more days of pain before I reach PP, but I've pretty much ruled out tramadol.
