are narcotic pain killers available in Vietnam

i recently retired from the US Army and take percocet 2 times a day and flexiril 2 times a day since i broke my back in Iraq..... another story!!!   i have heard you cannot obtain either of these drugs in Vietnam, and the pharmacies i have checked with in Vietnam say they don't havd them.  i even went to an International Clinic and they didn't have them either.  so my question is where can i find a place or a doctor  to get more in Vietnam.  or are they just unattainable here..   thanks in advance.. and where can u get some!

Jack,

Thanks for your service. You can try Victoria Med Centers. They have Tramadol.

Take Care

You might try looking for Flexiril under its generic name of cyclobenzaprine.  I doubt that you will find Percocet as it is the brand name for ocycodone/paracetomol.  I had both after my knee replacement in Hawaii, but I actually had to request cyclobenzaprine from my doctor as my clinic (Kaiser Permanente) prefers another muscle relaxer without the narcotic effect.  I hated the oxycodone and stopped taking it as soon as I could but I found cyclobenzaprine to be very effective.

Dear ltcjackwatson,

For your problem, I may suggest that :
* You can come to FV hospital, register with Pain control department and visit with Pain doctor. Then he/she will give you the prescription with Narcotic depend on your situation. You can buy medication at FV hospital.

* Or you can come to private Pain clinic - Dr THAI THI HOA - in dist 7. She is working in FV hospital ( Anesthesiologist + Pain control doctor). She can speak English + French. She was trained in French before. A good doctor for your case.
Her clinic address and:
80 Cao Triều Phát , Tân Phong , Quận 7, Hồ Chí Minh
