2 Ways to Refill Prescriptions in Bangkok, Thailand

Obtaining Medications

Travelers should have a medication list including their generic names in case there is a need to refill any of the meds during travel.


Recognize that some meds are different in Thailand

The name of a drug bought in Bangkok may be identical or similar to the medications bought in a different areas, but many of them do not have the same brand name as the one you bought at your country.


Find a drugstore that has a pharmacist

It is not uncommon to walk into a drugstore in Thailand that does not have a pharmacist on service, and some of them are a pharmacist assistant driven a drugstore business. Unfortunately, this kind of illegal drugstore has far more number than the legal part and they might give you a different  medication or not be in the same dosage and could cause serious effects to your health.
