Pharmacist knew what teens were up to – takes abuse for not giving Tramadol | Samui Times

A pharmacist in Ubon went on Facebook to say what she did when she suspected teens who came into her shop were trying to get the restricted painkiller Tramadol.

Pharmacist knew what teens were up to - takes abuse for not giving Tramadol | News by Samui TimesManager reported that Chonchanok Chaweewong was in her shop when a girl rushed in with a fellow male teen in tow clutching his stomach in apparent dire pain.

“Give me three lots of that green and yellow painkiller quick”, the girl urged the pharmacist clearly referring to Tramadol.

Smelling a rat, and unable according to the law to comply with her request anyhow, she grabbed an alternative – a strip of yellow medicine and one of green.

The male teen seemed to recover quickly. He banged the medicine down on the counter and grabbed the change hurling a stream of abuse at the pharmacist before hurriedly leaving.

Tramadol is increasingly controlled in Thailand where it is used by some as a narcotic drug.

Manager did not explain and neither did the pharmacist on Facebook what exactly she gave the teens in this case.

A variety of side effects are associated with Tramadol use that can even lead to death, reported Manager.
