In India, you can buy any benzo over the counter except valium. Even Indian psychiatrists hesitate to prescribe valium, because they consider it more habit forming. Now they are more careful to prescribe alprazolam too but funny, you may get it from any pharmacy without a prescription.
While I was in Lebanon, I asked the pharmacist whether they have any sleeping aids.
"we have valium sir, pharmacist replied. How many tablets you want?
It was thus easy. But don't write off all the countries in Middle East like this. In Gulf countries like Qatar, Saudi Arabia etc you need a triplicate prescription to get your hand over to any benzo.
Oh proud world!
