Xanax is not a date rape drug and it is not illegal. I guess if you could get someone to ram down 20 of them it might do something, but it is not in the class like Rohypnol and not a hypnotic.

 

Neith Xanax nor Valium are sleeping medications.

 

Both are controlled substances in Thailand and good for time in the clink if caught. Not quite meth but not legal without a prescription. All you need is a Thai cop making a point. Or seeking a bribe.

 

People who think they can sleep on Xanax are benefiting from the placebo effect, though it is not particularly dangerous. It is not a hypnotic (the term for a sleeping medication)

 

Xanax is prescribed for anxiety, so is Ativan, and so is Valium. They differ mostly by the duration of action, Valium being very long, Xanax very short lasting. For anxiety. Panic attack, that sort of disorder.

 

These pills do not cost much from an actual pharmacy where you live, so why not ask your family doctor for a few Triazolam (Halcion) which actually is specific for helping you sleep?

 

1/4 mg will put you out to combat jet lag, it is very short duration which is what you want, and you wake up naturally without a benzo hangover. Are people afraid to ask a GP for something as routine as this? Mine will give me 20 at a time though I only use 2 per trip.

Yes valium is an anti anxiety drug but is often pescribed for insomnia in very small amounts (to help you get into a sleeping pattern) but only in small amounts/doses because it's addictive and it will sure as he'll put you to sleep it is a sedative after all

Most common side effect of Xanax is sleepiness.. I take a few when I fly and they knock me out.. Got them prescribed for anxiety once, ever since I mainly use them as sleeping pills from time to time. Not very practical for anxiety as they make me feel to tired and drowsy to function normally.

 

Available in most pharmacies in Thailand, it's just that the ones that follow the rules will want to see a prescription. I have one, so I wouldn't know which pharmacies turn a blind eye, but I'm sure there's a few in Pattaya that do..

 

Always better to have your paperwork in order though, (oficial) penalties are quite severe.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "sleeping medication" but Xanax (Alprazolam) is certainly prescribed for insomnia and certainly works (and is NOT simply a placebo affect). A simple Google search will establish that for you.

 

That said, I certainly would not recommend anyone take Xanax on a regular basis. It can be problematic to come off.

I am taking a valium right now so that I a can get a good nights sleep as I will be wide awake for the motor racing and football tomorrow, soi 6 can wait another day or two.
Mrs Oldlover is taking one also, so that she does not have to look at me while I am sleeping like a baby, with out my teef in.

We have been taking valium for about 4 years now, but we only have one every three or four days, so no problem.

in regard to pharmaceuticals sold on the streets of TH, versus the ones you get in a proper pharmacy. it is my understanding that many of the ones on the street may not always be genuine or good generic substitutes (knock-offs), and the ones sold in pharmacies (under the counter) are the real deal, but have been brought in on the sly to avoid customs/duty (which is a very TH thing).

 

this has been explained to me by a Thai friend who is a pharmacist and owns 5 pharmacies in Phuket. she contends that while some of the street merchandise may be the real deal, it is most often inferior copies.

 

i believe she has no reason to con/BS me for profit.

 

she contends that while some of the street merchandise may be the real deal, it is most often inferior copies similar to luggage, perfume, watches, etc..

To be honest I did eat a fuck load of food before I had one so maybe that reduced the effectiveness

If you are drinking alcohol this also reduces the affect most people use them when they are preparing for trip home. they are exhasted anyway and have started reduction in partying looking to start slight detox and the inevitable home journey . The tabets reduce thought racing and give you a 20/ 30 min window to induce sleep so a combination of exhastion and reduced alcohol lets you get a sleep .either on plane or in patts hotel a few days before trip home . Diazepam similar but more adictive ,sleeping tablets zoplicone solpiderm dont reduce the anxiety the same and have a metal taste in mouth and a feeling of tiredness on awakening.

Clinic next to pooks on soi buakhaow.

 

Unfortunately, that pharmacy closed shop. I was lucky enough to purchase 60 pills when they were still open.

10 Baht/Pill.

 

Later I tried to buy them at a different pharmacy (corner of Buakeaw/Diana) and they told me they can't sell them anymore. They sold me a substitute which was of no use. No effect at all but more expensive.

 

It really pisses me off that some fuckheads use the drug for illegal activities and the authorities make it illegal for everyone. I bet the fuckers have a supply from illegal channels now as they do with any other controlled drug.

 

O.

 

PS. try the drugstore on Patpong 1 if you are in BKK. They have everything.
