Prescription Toothpaste In Bangkok?

Recommended Posts

Because I stored this prescription toothpaste in my lost luggage, I looked at 4 Pharamacies in Chiangmai for it today, with no luck. In the U.S., its prescription because of the amount of fluoride in it. Usually, the brand name is followed by 5000. I'll be in Bangkok Wednesday just from 7 AM to 7:30 PM in the Tourist areas of Bangkok. Can anyone give a recommendation on a pharmacy that might carry it? Thanks!

Don't bother replying. I'll look for it, along with penicillin to dry out the congestion that I caught last Friday. I think that it will be a lot longer before my next trip to Thailand.

There is a good pharmacy on the north side of Suk, just west of Soi 15. They're my go-to place for my asthma meds when I'm in town.

I struck out yesterday at 10 pharmacies along Silom and Suk. I'm back in CM but will have my last attempt next Wednesday, before I leave BKK the next day.

That's it. My dentist told me that any brand with "5000" behind it are all about the same. There's a lot more fluoride in the toothpaste. In the U.S., you need a prescription to buy it, and it comes in a tube half the size of a regular tube of toothpaste. And it costs $25, so I was going to buy 7-10 tubes, depending on price. Granted, I don't take great care of my teeth, I don't need to ever have 4 cavities at one time. Plus, between root canals and crowns, I want everything taken care of now, follow the Dentist's recommendations as much as possible, and, at age 65, not worry about my teeth for a good 10-15 years.

Thanks for the picture of Colgate nuetraflour 5000. I'll show it to whatever pharmacy that I stop at for the next couple of days. If I don't have any luck in Chiangmai, try try Bangkok next Wednesday.

Given it's a prescription toothpaste, I wonder if you should stop in some of the better bigger hospitals or dentist clinics, Like Bangkok International Dental or something like that?
