sometimewoodworker, you are so smart..HYDRO is Hydrocodone. Asprin is not addictive, it kills you.
The Word was : surly.
Heres another one...years before this addicion, a well known dental Surgeon who was friends of my group of Dental experts ( I was the Mechanic who made all the dental appliances) extratracted a deep impacted wisdom tooth. It went rather well and he refused to bill me as we were all a "Team" of sorts. Gave me a script for 12 Roxicodones. I didn't know this one, but spent the Holiday weekend in my beach chair waiving and watching traffic go by with a beer in my hand.
Once that drug gets in your system, you got to fight to shake it. This is why the Military took over the poppy fields in Afganistan..to flood the streets of the US with opioids, addictions..now its "legal pot".
Give me a break...its all about dumbing down people so they can finish taking down the US. The legal pot is the GMO pot.
We Americans are not stupid, well we wern't until several years ago...we built alot of the new world. But sadly, another Master is about to take over, so we are being attacked by our own Government.
And all you others gents are being attacked in your own countries, weather by drugs, immigration, LBJTQ's , MSM, what ever...I didn't have a choice in being born there, but I did voice my opinion by getting out.

Hydrocortisone is also an anti inflamatory just a thought
Though it doesn't seem that it would be used for pain reduction :roll: however the cat doesn't seem to want, or be able to give any clarification.

Well your spelling isn't so good as you are continuing to make a spelling mistake.
And as I said Hydro is not now and never has been a standard abbreviation for any medication.

Everything kills you when taken in excess including H2O. Aspirin however is one of the safest drugs.

Bought 200 Aspilets for 200 baht at the 'hole in the wall pharmacy' yesterday.

Had to give ID card to the Pharmacist, & she explained that some people when they have alot of Mosquito bites, might scratch alot & bleed excessively. Seems a reasonable explanation.

As for the 'local stuff's not being dosed properly, I feel that as it's a controlled compound - & hopefully manufacturing is more regulated, then surely all Aspirin would be....?

Btw Felix, you also made two other spelling mistakes. Being "Asprin" & "Kindney", hence my comment on Renal Function.

However my dear chap, your anecdotes or tales, are more amusing, & indeed plausible than a.n.other on here....

Go on the 216 to Sakon & it's on the left, just after the fire daeng.

Looks small & a bit shabby, but inside is big, well stocked & a bit cheaper than Somboon.

Funny, turn my back to attend to some serious business and the "spelling checkers and misunderstanders" come out.
Hydrocodone is not Hydrocortisone....How did you even make that "Leap"? Oh, I get it, ..something I got from another website: "Don't be a spelling checker"!! By doing so you are distracting the message and leading it "off subject".
Faraday, Yes, I know, I am doing my best to "add some life". Thanks

If you don't invite people to spell check you would probably get it less!

There are several different drugs that you could have used your special abbreviation HYDRO for these are some.
Hydroxyzine
Hydroxychloroquine
Hydrochlorothiazide
Hydrocodone
Hydrocortisone
Your term is not standard for any of them. So if your don't like to to be misunderstood do be clear.

By correcting your mistakes we may have stopped somebody buying or asking for incorrect mesications.

I always look to Udon Map forum for up-to-the-minute medical advice. It's a cutting edge resource that allows me to remain one step ahead of research labs, universities, and top medical professionals. It's an indispensable source of top-notch, potentially life-saving guidance found nowhere else in the frontier of untamed Udon Thani.

Well, you tried hard, but again, "Thinking out loud".
All you had to do was read what I said, instead of "misdirrecting" things (that is a form of "Trolling")
The med was for PAIN..
Hydrocodone
Roxicodone
Oxycodone....codone or codine
Wassa, I'm surprised you didn't get this...

Warning, this is from personal experience and is not a medical recommendation.
Please consult your doctor before trying what works for me.

I have suffered from migraines for over 40 years, however by using a form of aspirin as soon as I recognise that a migraine is developing I have been able to either stop them fully developing or dramatically reduce their intensity.

I have discussed this with my doctors over the years and they have said that I am lucky as:

• I am able to recognise a migraine developing while there is still time to do something to mitigate its impact.

• I do not have any medical issues with aspirin.

The dosage I take to minimise the impact of migraines is 3 x 300 mg mouth dispersible aspirin (which do not need water and which I now always carry on me).

For a bit of additional information, this is an article is about a placebo-controlled study in the US on using Mouth-dispersible aspirin in the treatment of migraine.

I've been trying to find aspirin as well. In Bangkok, Udon Thani and Pattaya (not to mention the area I live in).
The answer I have received is that they have stopped selling it around the end of February and they have no idea why.

It is a curiosity. Was hoping to find an answer here. I will go ask the doctor in the next few days and see if he knows what's up.

I'd try either of the Somsak Pharmacies.......across from the Bangkok Bank on Phosri Rd or across from Ban Hui market on the corner. The pharmacists there both speak English and are certified pharmacists.

Out on a limb here........but in a months-ago discussion about the difficulty buying aspirin with one of the pharmacists at Forte, she said something about Reye's Syndrome. She succumbed to my request to purchase some 81mg pills......hesitated when I said I wanted 180 (my wife and I take a daily tab), but allowed me to do so. On a recent trip back to the US I bought a boatload.

There's a 55 page document that talks about Reye's Syndrome, aspirin, paracetamol at http://elib.fda.moph.go.th/fulltext2/word/16991/2.pdf One of the t.i.t. moments (for me).......the ease of getting high potency creams like dermovate or antibiotics........but aspirin? Oh, no.

I take aspirin every day and have had no problem getting them in Udon. I got a 4 month supply last time from the Pharmacy accross from the fruit market as you come into town from the Nong Khai direction. ( I won't try to spell the name).
