Much cheaper than local pharmacies for brand name drugs and way way way cheaper than hospitals.
Thank you so much for the information. I don't guess that you know of any wholesale pharmacies in Chiang Mai, or how I could find wholesale pharmacies here? If I can't locate wholesale pharmacies here, I wouldn't have a problem going to Bangkok for meds if I could save enough money.
I know it might be difficult but is there any way you could be more specific about the location of the pharmacies? I might not be able to find them without more specific addresses.
Thank you so much.
