Sick, where are some places to buy hydralyte

Unfortunately I've been sick pretty much since getting to Thailand. I brought a medical pack with me from Canada but I'm out of hydralyte. Does anyone know where I might buy some or something similar in Chiang Mai?

You can buy those rehydration drinks from any pharmacy in Chiang Mai.

That's bad news.

There are pharmacies all over Chiang Mai. In the night bazaar street you will find a couple - if you go into the Kalare Food Court area just off the main night bazaar street there is a pharmacy booth right in the food court. We have bought antibiotics and various other meds from there.

If you're still sick and need to see a doctor, just ask your hotel for help.

You might need some stemetil or lomotil to settle things down.

Get better.

From a 7-11.......... when you get the hydrolite drink, ask them for a packet of cough drops as well.

Have fun

Thanks everyone, there's a 7-11 down the street so I'll try there. I also bought some kind of herbal tea from Blue Diamond so maybe that will help. I'm mostly suffering from nausea and stomach pain/fever in the mornings and evenings, tomorrow were taking the bus to Chiang Rai so hopefully I survive.
