The principal mechanism regarding distribution relates to protein‐binding of drugs while circulating in serum. It is rare for any enhancement to reach the level of synergism. Drugs may alter the absorption, distribution, or elimination of one another. A particular drug may have no action on a targeted tissue whatsoever but may modify another drug's influence by varying its concentration available to produce an effect. In terms of absorption, the most familiar is the delayed absorption of tetracycline antibiotics by divalent cations found in antacids and dairy products.

Things like Penicillin, Ciprofloxacin, Bactrim and a whole host of other antibiotics are available over the counter.

Condoms too are available at pharmacies (as well as supermarket, 7-11s etc) but, be warned, many of my Western male friends say, because Thais are shorter in stature, penis size seems to also be relative. So, if you buy a medium in the west, you’re probably likely to need a large in Thailand.
Of course, you need to be careful with something like this, and really shouldn’t be self-medicating but, if you’ve had a prescription from a doctor and just need a refill, you can buy many brands of anti-depressant over the counter.
