    Any "doctor" recommending medication for what is described by the OP as "horrible back pain" would, in the absence of a diagnosis be both unprofessional and irresponsible.

    No - if it is meant to help the OP to go the hospital. He said he was waitnig for a ride.

    Not only unprofessional but potentially dangerous. 

    I think that if doctors are posting here they know very well what they can recommend and what not - and this would be neither unprofessional nor dangerous. Recommendations from nonprofessionals might be different.

    here is my ranking from weakest to strongest pain killers:


    tramadol (weakest)

    hydrocodone (vicodin, lortab, norco)

    oxycodone (percocet)

    oxycontin (contains oxycodone but in very high dosage)


    my buddy was addicted to pain killers.  he 'lived' on the floor of my apartment for awhile, he's dead now.  so i got to know what pills were better than others.  the 80mg oxycontin is the super max, he'd smash that into a powder and down it with a glass of water. 

    not available in Thailand and anyway not for laymen

  4. doesn't sound like kidney stones. Ibuprofen max dose per day 2400 mg, start with  600 mg TD Diclofenac max 150 mg, Arcoxia 90 and 120 mg (not longer than 1 week)  are the strongest otc pain  killers in LOS. you can combine with paracetamol max 4000 mg per day, for diclo and ibu I recommend combine with omeprazole 20-40 mg to prevent stomach trouble - and hurry to see a doctor, you can also try tramadol but it has a lot of unpleasant side effects

    Don't take any over long time without consulting a doctor (which seems to be your plan anyway)

    You and the journalist are missing the all important details of the case: the aide, the driver, and the chef were planning a surprise panther-steak BBQ for the boss and he showed up just before the authorities arrived. Simply bad luck and bad timing on his part...  😏

    I wouldnt be surprised if he won't even give them the promised reward for their story and undeserved jailtime

    If you others believe otherwise why don't you make an official complaint to BJ? 

    I am not sure if BJ would be the right address. But I wonder what can you do if you think an Immigration officer does not treat you correctly - e.g. asking for more documents than in the official list, wanting  to see more money than officially requested ... What can you do? Write a complaint to whom? need a lawyer?
