    I’ll answer my own post. Been researching the availability of truvada in LOS and there’s some really good things that I came across in the fight to prevent HIV.
     
    Firstly, Truvada is owned by Gilead Sciences. They own a monopoly over the Prep anti viral drug. In first class countries, they’re the sole providers and creators of Truvada.
     
    In LOS, India, elsewhere that is developing there are quite a few generic versions. Out of the goodness of their heart, Gilead does not pursue the generic versions for patent infringement.
     
    In LOS, Truvada can be found be is upwards of 20,000 baht per month for 30 pills.
     
    The generic versions are identical in compounds/ingredients and range anywhere from 600 baht to 1,500 baht per month.
     
    Ricovir-Em is one such generic version created in India by the largest drug manufacturer in the world.
     
    Teno-Em is a generic version that is created under the guidance of the Thai govt. easily available for 600 baht for the Thai masses.
     
    There are a couple more as well.
     
    Thailand has committed lots of money and research towards protecting its citizen against HIV.
     
    The easiest way to access these drugs is to go to the Thai Red Cross Anonymous Clinic - close to Lumphimini Park.
     
    I also canvassed many pharmacies in the lower Sukhumvit area and the majority don’t have Teno-em or Ricovir-em in stock but can order it and receive it with 24 hrs.
     
    That’s how I got myself some Teno-em.

    Citrus Suites has lived up to the hype! It’s a great hotel, easy access to the NEP. The suites are massive and extremely comfortable. The staff has been absolutely professional to me and my guests.

    For those of you who care about the walk of shame through the lobby, it’s a mere 20 feet from the hotel entrance to the elevators. And the lobby is a ghost town after 1am.

    The morning buffet is a bit weak in my opinion but maybe my expectations are a bit out of scope here. Nonetheless, the buffet is sufficient. Orange juice ain’t so great.

    The beats restaurant is adequate as well. And I received a daily 100 baht voucher to use at the restaurant.

    As far as reservations are concerned, I’d recommend using their mobile site. It was cheaper compared to using a desktop browser. Interesting to see that difference. I saved 5000 baht for my 7 day stay. I booked 5 days prior to my stay.

    Here are some pics of my suite.

    mangatanga got a reaction from flipflops in Any experience with Mozio booked through Agoda?   
    Just booked the Dynasty Grande via Agoda for mid-Feb and noticed a check box for Mozio ground transportation from Suvarnabhumi to DG for $11 USD. I ticked it and paid for it. Has anyone else tried Mozio from the airport to their hotel while in BKK?
    I typically take a taxi but last time I was in town, the lines were huge and it took me almost 90 minutes to get one. So I am looking at alternative modes of transportation...

    If I get a moment, I’ll see if I can check out the DG rooms and see if the latest renovations improved any of the rooms.
     
    By the way, if you’re concerned about having to escort your guest up to your room due to the elevator key card access. I can say that I just witnessed an LB going up to her customer’s room and the hotel staff let her into the elevator.

    You are right Mardhi,
     
    I just confirmed your comment with Dynasty Grande. It’s a 500 baht charge for the 3rd guest and every guest after that even if it’s for a short visit.
     
    And on that note, I just cancelled my reservation at DG... now communicating directly with the Citrus reservation dept about guests. Will update this thread once I find out what they say.

    The whole snake thing made me curious as to why they’d have snakes at a medical facility and did some quick research on the Queen Saovabha facility and it appears as though the institute is the second largest snake anti venom facility in the world and a leading research institute.

    If I go there for my extra vaccines, I’ll definitely check out the snakes!

They also have Thai generic, but I prefer the real thing. Pack of 6 which is 1.5g costs 550 Baht.

    Visiting LOS since 2000 and in my 4th year of living here, the only thing I've caught thus far is NSU two different times and Chlamydia once from unprotected blowjobs. Cipro didn't dent any of them, and only Azithromycin (Zithromax) could get the job done.
     
    A friend got Chlamydia in his eye; that was some nasty stuff.
     
    One course got rid of my NSU, but doctors here recommend two courses of Azithromycin when treating Chlamydia.
     
    Azithromycin is available at the big pharmacy next to Bully's Pub for about 500 THB per course.
