Clinic Re-opening?

Recommended Posts

anybody got a good idea when clinics will re-open?  one of my essential inhalers is only available though a clinic I go to and it's about dry.

So the inhaler isn't something a normal Pharmacy carries?

It might be Image result for Marijuana Inhalerso not readily available, but from a specialty clinic, and only in certain quantities.

I've inquired about this inhaler at various pharmacies and, no.  it's not available at any pharmacy.

 

where oh where did you find a cannabis inhaler and would it work for COPD?

I'm being told by a person who runs several clinics that all clinics are open, that only surgery clinics are closed. That hasn't been my experience, seeing several small clinics closed during the day that are normally packed when open. 

 

Anyway, here's a suggestion: If your normal clinic has a number posted on their sign (or door when closed) it might be possible to call that number and talk to someone who knows when that clinic might reopen, or alternatives for receiving normal prescription supplies. Worth a shot (pun not really intended).

I was thinking outside of the box when you said it was only accessible at a clinic.  No it would not work for COPD unfortunately.  Your probably looking for the same type of inhaler my mother uses, she was just switched to Trelegy, and a once every 8 week injection.  I hope your not having to do breathing treatments 3 times a day as well.  Please take care of yourself.  You can always try SC Pharmacy in Bangkok off of Rama 4 Rd, just past Silom.

They are starting to allow buses to operate now.

You could alos take a train to Bangkok that are operating now.

Another option is to check here for your inhaler. http://drugstorebangkok.com/ The will ship them to you.

Addressing the OPs original question:

 

Surely medical clinics (perhaps with a limitation that no surgery can be carried out) have been permitted to open throughout the Covid crisis or at the very least will now be allowed to open today?

 

Why do I think that. Well if you look at the list of businesses that are now allowed to open from 17 May (today) it includes such businesses as:

 

 

  •  

drug store

dentist clinics

nail salons

Beauty clinics for body and skin (no surgeries on face)

Gym and fitness centres

Seems highly unlikely that medical clinics would remain unlawful to be open -they certainly have been open in my Isaan province throughout. Maybe just the decision of your particular clinic rather than government/province edict. Obviously - try again Monday in case today's round of relaxations have stimulated their opening up!

I was thinking the same thing.  if dentists are allowed to open, then why not a clinic?

 

but now it doesn't matter.  my wife found a pharmacy which had my inhaler, so I'm good for a while.

 

thanks, everyone!

Most clinics are open. Are you sure yours is not? Many never even closed, they certainly were nto required to.

 

I can't think of any inhaler medication for COPD that requires a prescription so there is an excellent chance it can be bought at a pharmacy even though none near you carry it. Can you l;ist the name of the inhaler?
