    Current Bangkok Clinics ?

    That was a quote from a doctor at a Thai clinic stating his opinion of each med. It was posted by a member of this board. I have have also spoken with the doctors at my county clinic. I work for a pharmaceutical competitor of Gilead and understand this business. Truvada is the only one that meets both USP (United States Pharmacopeia) and EP (European Pharmacopeia) compliance. I have nothing against generics and use them for myself. But for a little extra, I would want the peace of mind of avoiding an infection. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    Current Bangkok Clinics ?

    I have been on it for 7 months now without issue. You can start and stop if you like, but you need start at least 7 days before your first encounter. You should go at least 2-3 days after you last encounter. I have a tendency to be spontaneous with my encounters, so just stay on it for now. The small infection rate is from people not taking their dose EVERY DAY. I have hereditary high bp, so i just toss it in my pill case with my other med & vitamins. I live in the Chicago area. I went to the county clinic. Between my insurance and a manufacturer rebate card the county got for me, my Truvada is free. There are several international versions, but Truvada by Gilead is the most potent and reliable version of PreP available. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk
  3. I just stayed Citadines 11. It splits CIB and Nana. It is a nice place. I just posted a review on it. It should be easy to find. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    Citadines soi 8 & 11 (updated 2014)

    I just finished up a stay at Citadines 11. Here are a few of my observations: Book through their website. Expedia wanted 4000 Baht a night for my one bedroom condo unit. I booked it through their painfully slow website for 2350 Baht per night after taxes. There are lesser rooms, but I was only in town for two nights, so the extra 350 Baht per night upgrade was not a big deal. The one bedroom unit of mine was spacious, clean and well maintained. It had a functional kitchen and a split bathroom. The only complaint that I listed with them was the toilet room. It had the porcelain throne and a small sink. But the throne was damn near against the wall/sliding wood door. You can see a huge void in the corner where the old shower used to be. But they never relocated the throne to the center of the wall to make more room for the user. It is fine if you are 50 kgs, but I am double that. So I had to sit at a slight angle when having deep thoughts. Across the hall was the large basin with mirror and a full size tub/shower. I had a corner unit on the seventh floor. I could hear the night clubs nearby and there were complimentary ear plugs on the safe. But as a monger, bedtime was 3am to 4am, so it was not an issue. A breakfast buffet is included in the price and it was decent by western standards. The restaurant is open 24/7. It is packed at 4am with mostly Westerners. The living room and the master bedroom each had a 42" flat panel TV. Most places only give you one. You can send your laundry out for ungodly prices, carry it over to the 24hour laundry shop across the street (down an alley, look for the signs) that is priced by the kilo, or go up to the 9th floor. The gym and pool are up here. It costs 90 Baht for one token. It takes 2 tokens to do a load. 1 for washer, 1 for the dryer. They are full size units. The laundry soap & fabric softener is included when you buy the tokens from the front desk. This place is within walking distance of Check in Bar, Nana Plaza, Terminal 21 mall and splits two of the BTS stops. There is a ton of street action on Soi 11 and on the strip down towards the Westin Hotel. The Westin sidewalk was overflowing with LB talent. The hotel is LB friendly. I had Beam come over on her day off and stay overnight without any issues. My cab ride to the airport using Grab at 11am was 400 Baht plus 78 Baht in tolls. You can take the BTS to the airport line for cheap, but I had a full size suitcase, a full size gym bag, a fully loaded computer backpack and my CPAP bag. I was not in the mood to haul all that down 7 blocks in 93°F heat just to save 400 Baht. I was brought up by hired car from Pattaya, so I do not know what that cost would be from the airport. Depending on how long I plan on staying im Bangkok next year, I will plan on booking here again. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk
