How To Buy Modafinil In Thailand – Is It Legal?
Buying modafinil in Thailand at actual pharmacies can be hard. You can find modafinil (Modalert, Modvigil, Provigil) primarily at pharmacies in the tourist zones of Bangkok. If you are looking to buy locally outside of Bangkok, don’t expect to have much luck.
Is Modafinil legal in Thailand?
You may be surprised that the answer is a resounding YES.
From Thailand’s own Narcotics Control Division of the Food and Drug Administration and the Ministry of Public Health website:
Provigil / Modafinil – General Drug – The drug is not classified as a narcotic drug or psychotropic substance according to Narcotics Act B.E. 2522.
An application for a permit from Thai FDA is not required.
Now that we know modafinil and armodafinil are legal in Thailand, what’s the best way to get it if we don’t want to physically walk into a pharmacy in downtown Bangkok, or we are not staying near downtown Bangkok?
Your best bet is going to be an online modafinil specialist pharmacy.
Some good options for buying modafinil at an online pharmacy are:
Afinilexpress – They ship from India, which takes longer and has a higher chance of getting stopped at Thai Customs
BuyModa – They ship from Singapore and I’ve had all of my orders arrive within 4 days.
Thailand’s close proximity to Singapore makes the shipping really fast.
My goal was to keep this post short and sweet, but I may revisit this subject of the legality of nootropics such as modafinil and armodafinil in Thailand in the future.
