It is a money maker only for private hospitals. For government hospitals, which get a flat per capita amount based on population of their catchment area, it causes a profound LOSS. And government hospitals provide the overwhelming majority of care in Thailand. Yet they also do it (overprescribe).

Thai patients do indeed equate the quality of care with the number of diffetent medications given and are insulted and outraged if sent home with nothing. Very well educated people will be an exception but this is the rule. Hospital staff respond to this. When you are at a hospital in a situation where no medication is needed, you need to speak up and assure the staff you understand this and don't mind.

Been to Siriraj, BKK (massive government hosp., me thinks) last week and this week,

with a view to sort one ailment

(they multiply their prices with 1.25 for foreigners)

I am just amazed by the heaps of tablets they throw at me, incredible really - and am NOT happy with that

 

The size of the pill mountain makes me doubt their insight in how sorting my ailment.

 

And I see a clear tendency to expand my portfolio to cover aspects/issues not really relevant to what

I want sorted.

Anyone else out there ever have their drink spiked? I have, in Thailand and Cambodia. Im not saying that's what happened but it is possible. They usually use valium or zanax. Those mixed with lots of alcohol and or other drugs will kill u!

  It is suspected that the drugs may have contributed to his death and that is what has been reported , so, its quite reasonable for them to write that in the story

Suspected by a non medic who has not yet had access to the toxicology reports , yes very reasonable and very professional....not !

I like the guy in the middle who is pointing the wrong way, i think it's because he is left handed, and the couple to the left hand side and the guy with the red wooly hat at the right hand side, who are not allowed to point !!!

That is why it was just suspected  , had a doctor done tests and gave results , it would then be confirmed,  rather than just suspected

My friends and me love to mix alcohol and valium for fun, and we drink a lot, 30+ drinks is common, so articles on the web saying that valium and alcohol is a deadly mix should be taken with a huge grain of salt. It's not like I'm recommending it or something but they love to exaggerate.

 

During my toothache, I went out one night, had 3 ibuprofen, 3 paracetamol, 3 painkillers from the dentist, 1 propanolol, a handful of valium, 8 whiskey, 5 beer, and another 2 bottles of whiskey shared with the four of us, so make that another 0.35ltr/person. Then finally I got rid of the pain. Took a boy home, had sex, once again in the morning, and obviously a huge hangover.

 

Just saying, it takes a lot more than spiking your drink with 1 valium or Xanax to drop dead.

There is a big difference between an alcoholic and a "normal" person. Alcoholics are known to have progressively accustomed their body to huge quantity of alcohol that normal people could never handle.

I am a non-drinker and always have been a non-drinker. 30 drinks of alcohol very probably would kill me. Valium on top would just be a safety measure in case I decided to commit suicide ! :sad:

I'm not an alcoholic!!!

 

In the past six months I can count the nights I've been drinking at one hand, but when I drink I drink a LOT.

 

If you give me 30 beers I probably don't make it till the end of the night, or morning as I would fall asleep so I always start with beer, then when I start to feel a little bit tired I take a few vodka Redbull, and mostly we end the night with a few bottles of 100 Piper, mostly mixed with Coke Cola so the caffeine is what keeps me going.
