Zolpidem in HCM?

Seems easier to find god knows what than that here, has it been banned. Zolpidem is the name of Ambien or Stillnox. I know it has it's problems, but it works best for me. Any sources (in pharmacies) in District 7 preferably or nearby there?

No.

For someone who has been here for 20 years, you would presume by now they would know where to find it.

True but some things are just not there.  I really have good results with using Pseudoephedrine tablets for nasal congestion.  I usually need them for about a week a year as nose and throat problems seem to be an occupational hazard for teachers.  It is available without a prescription in my state in the US but with tracking restrictions which prevent overpurchasing as it is the base ingredient for illegal crystal methadrine.  I discussed it with my doctor who had post graduate US training and was familiar with the drug and he wrote me a scrip.  He owned a pharmacy himself and said that he did not think it was available.  He was correct.

I searched online and found it. 650k vnd for 20 tablets.

I am not doubting you but I am surprised.  Are sure it is the real thing?  Manufacturers in the US are marketing another ingredient using the name Sudafed.

Found it on Sanofi Aventis, which is a major drug company here in VN.

Since the crackdown on the OCT sale of sedatives a couple of years ago, pharmacies don't stock it anymore. There might be a few in Saigon or Hanoi that sell it illegally, but with a considerable mark-up. Hospitals have it, but you will probably have to see a doctor first, at least for your first prescription. What is sold cheaply everywhere is Zoplicone, which for me works fine too. Kind of weird, though, that of 2 always equivalent  prescription sleeping medications one is handed out like peanuts, the other is strictly controlled. Might have something to do with the fact that Zoplicone is manufactured in Vietnam, while Zolpidem is imported.

Thanks, I went to the foreign hospital in D7 (forget the name) but it seems a lot of Koreans go there, english wasn't the best so they either said they were sold out or don't sell it, not sure :D They are probably wise not to stock it, a lot of driving accidents with it, but those side effects have never gotten to me with years of taking it. Just nice, restful sleep. If anybody knows a specific doctor in the D7/D1 area that has it, would appreciate it, thanks.
