  1. I've seen Dr Kittiwan about ten times. The medication she prescribed improved my life so much. She can be a bit quick. "Ok I will prescribe X, that's it". Most visits were 2-5 min and for that I payed 300 every time. She told me that fluvoxamine, a common anti depressant, cannot be bought in a pharmacy (which it can) "because it is an anti depressant". She also answered no when I asked her if there is a tolerance build up to Quetiapin/Seroquel, which there is.
  2. Hm, the Dr prescribed fluvoxamine for my girl and said it cannot be bought in pharmacy "because it is an antidepressant". Then lowered the price. Is fluvoxamine really not available in pharmacy? Should I be haggling on psychiatric meds?
  3. Sheryl you are a golden star. Would you mind giving some input on where to find the best price on ritalin? The private psychiatric clinic price is 40 baht / 10 mg pill which is too expensive for the ammount I need. For posterity Valosine is more expensive in suanprung.
  4. Hi Would someone mind telling me where I might find dress shoes? (Not sure if dress shoes is the correct word. Looking for shoes that would fit with a designer shirt and shorts/pants.) Looked at night market, night bazaar, warorort outdoor market, Sunday market, Maya, CMU Market, but they either didn't have dress shoes or correct size (12/45).
  5. I'm actually not sure and have thrown away the cartridge. I checked several different pharmacies -Finesco, University hospital pharmacy, pharmachoice, one more. Unfortunately all were about the same as the private clinic price, cheapest one was 1500 baht for 28 pills 75mg. Please advise if there's a cheaper alternative somewhere.
  6. Hi Sheryl Your post was very informative. Yea right, it is an anti psychotic! The Dr. first prescribed Clonzapime to sleep, I contacted her because I had tolerance to the sleeping pills I was taking, which was Zopiklon. When I got back I mentioned Clonzapime is an anti psychotic. "No it's not". Name of the Dr. is Kittiwan. Very weird that she does not know that. I am affected by bipolar disorder and Quetiapine is used for sleep in this case.
  7. Hello all I Bought 30 anti depressants Valosine (Venlafaxine) and 30 sleeping pills Neutapine (quetiapine) from a psychiatrist clinic in Chiang Mai for 3200 baht. Did I pay "falang price"? Thanks
  8. I appreciate you responding. I will use the search function. For accomodation I want to pay 6-8k I want to work out every day so I'm going for monthly card. A mid budget gym or less is fine. I'd say 1200 baht is my maximum unless that gives me crap.
  9. Hey all! I would very much appreciate if someone could point me to a mid-range accomodation with ac that is close to a proper gym (ac, free weights, dumbbells and runners machine preferably). Preferably located by the nimmanaheminda road and surrounding area. Thanks in advance!
  10. Hey guys and gals! First time going to CM and a travelling by myself for a longer period. I could go for the METV but not sure I want to stay that long. So I was thinking of using the 3 month visa to test things out. Is it possible to extend the 3 month visa with border run/immigration office? For how long? Before applying for the visa the embassy requires a departure ticket out of Thailand - which flight from CM is the cheapest one?
  11. I have recently gotten rid of most of my clothes. Planning to move to CM live the expat life for 6 months. What is the general style of clothing among expats in CM? Would I be able to fit in mostly wearing clothes bought in CM? What would you advice, buy clothes at home (Stockholm) before travelling or do most of the purchaces in CM? I will ad that my height is 2m/6.5'' Thanks in advance
