Buying antibiotics in Cambodia (Suprax)

Hi, how easy is to buy antibiotics in Cambodia. I really need to buy Suprax but I wonder do I need a prescription or can I go straight to a pharmacy to get one.

Best ask for cefixime rather than the proprietary name

I popped in there to buy some antibiotics for a friend. I was very pleasantly surprised at this place and the level of knowledge and the prices were fine.

They don't even recommend this for gonorrhea any more.

2015 Sexually Transmitted Diseases Treatment Guidelines

Recommended Regimen

Ceftriaxone 250 mg IM in a single dose
PLUS Azithromycin 1g orally in a single dose


Alternative Regimens
If ceftriaxone is not available:

Cefixime 400 mg orally in a single dose
PLUS Azithromycin 1 g orally in a single dose

A 400-mg oral dose of cefixime should only be considered as an alternative cephalosporin regimen because it does not provide as high, nor as sustained, bactericidal blood levels as a 250-mg dose of ceftriaxone; further, it demonstrates limited efficacy for treatment of pharyngeal gonorrhea (92.3% cure; 95% confidence interval [CI] = 74.9%–99.1%); in older clinical studies, cefixime cured 97.5% of uncomplicated urogenital and anorectal gonococcal infections (95% CI = 95.4%–99.8%) (566,567). The increase in the prevalence of isolates obtained through GISP with elevated cefixime MICs might indicate early stages of development of clinically significant gonococcal resistance to cephalosporins. CDC anticipates that rising cefixime MICs soon will result in declining effectiveness of cefixime for the treatment of urogenital gonorrhea. https://www.cdc.gov/std/tg2015/gonorrhea.htm
