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.
Ashamed to be English since 23rd June 2016 when England voted for racism (and economic suicide).

Humiliated to have Johnson (a racist, serial liar and hypocrite) as UK Prime Minister.

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).

That's Somsak's. Father and daughter are both pharmacists.
