Hi i have active UC and am planning a 10 week trio to South East Asia soon, Im currently on asacolin 800mgx4 & salofalk 4g enemas. Pred if required, I am ready to carry a large supply of these with me but am  wondering if any all these are available in Thailand, Vietnam or cambodia in a regular pharmacy, alternatively could i get stuff shipped ok from home ??? would customs stop them ??? im from ireland and can get stuff cheap on my insurance

I worked in the Middle East on and off for several years and I never had a problem getting my meds in the mail. I never was able to find a pharmacy that carried Asacol, not even on a military base.

Bring it with you. It will be expensive in Thailand and bring a doctor's note so you don't have to deal with too much in customs. I lived in Thailand for two years while I dealt with this horrible problem. I know a great acupuncture doctor in Chiang Mai who can help curb symptoms for much cheaper than anyone you'll find in the states if you're interested.

There is no Asacol, but you can find solafalk.
