Seeking Bangkok Advice (Non-Monger Related)

United States
#1
Greetings! I'm headed to LOS here in a few weeks. I've searched on a few forums (such as Thai Visa) and seeking some updated knowledge as some of the information I am seeking is outdated. I take Metformin (AKA Glucophage) 500mg Extended Release. I am going to be staying around Sukhumvit 8 and wondering if anyone can recommend a pharmacy that they've used near there. Or, anywhere along the BTS line is fine as well. Also, if anyone has any recent experience purchasing the type of medication I am looking for, can you provide the price point on that? Thanks in advance!

Metformin

<<Edited to add: G-maps will get you there, albeit Thai servers are slow in that part of the world due to their mobile networks, but they're accurate enough.

Google Maps

Two pharmacies near Sukhumvit:

1) **Pharmacy World where Currency exchange is**

2) Southeast Pharmacy - (next to Thermae Cafe) >>


Regards,

Duc

I just added the Google Maps directions for you. I was just there at Sukhumvit Soi 6 and both 6 and 8 are close to Nana Soi 4.

Was just in Asok Soi Cowboy as well.

I decided to update this thread, since I am now "boots on the ground" and now have the answer.

On Soi 6, just a few paces away from Kassalong and two spaces away from the new Analisa Massage, I found a small pharmacy. They had a packet of ten 500mg Metformin (Glucophage) for 40 THB. I bought out the store for 400 THB as they only had ten packs left.

In the end, I ended up with 100 doses of Metformin for approximately $13.25

Soi 6 is where Phachara and Dynasty Grande hotels are, right?

Yep, it's basically right next door to the Dynasty Grande. I was going to check out the one you suggested, as I was leaving to go there this place just manifested in front of me, it was perfect.
