Title: Where can I score some Aspirin?
Post by: Rex (Admin) on June 27, 2018, 09:08:13 AM
For some reason, the gov is concerned about people using Aspirin. It has been increasingly more difficult to find, but Mr. Tun has always had it ... until now.  They still have 81 mg "baby aspirin," but not regular, 100% aspirin 300 mg.  You used to be able to get Bayer aspirin 500 mg at Boots, Watsons, PF, everywhere.  No more.


I have always used 100% aspirin for pain and fever. Tylenol and the other non-aspirin stuff doesn't do anything for me.  I wonder why Thailand considers it a problem? Tylenol and the other non-steroidal drugs are not exactly ideal either.

Anyway, if anyone knows where it is available, pls. lemme know.

Tks, lah!

I was looking in Bangkok for it a while ago and only found one place.
The tablets were around 325mg or 365mg so bigger than normal.

Actually, Fon just found some   smiley32    at what she describes as the biggest pharmacy in KKC.  Don't know if they plan on always having it in stock.  If you are interested, I'll get more details on Friday. I thought that Mr. Tun no longer carrying it, we would be shit out of luck.

See attached photo of the pharmacy where Fon bought Aspirin.  It is on Na Muang Road, opposite (across the street) from Number 1 Bar. If anyone goes there, you might ask is they have aspirin  available on a regular basis.

So they restrict aspirin but freely sell tramadol which is an opioid and controlled substance?
