Thailand & Steroids

Cool article about thailand but how the fuck do you go into a pahrmacy and ask for some steroids. Got me a couple of up to yous (same same) but wasnt sure what to ask for as am sure alot of the info on the internet i found out before venturing in a pharmacy was bollox and as they didnt have any on display wasnt sure what to ask for.

I forget exactly what is available in Thailand. Obviously, British Dispensary is sold. I would just walk into a pharmacy and let them know you were looking for anabolic steroids. They should be happy to help you.

I don’t know how many fakes are floating around in those pharms though. You might want to do some research on that before you buy.

You have to know what you want and ask for something specific by name. Not ?Yo bro, I want some ?roids.? Or slang terms or even brand names. Don?t expect your average pharmacist to know shit about different drugs or how to plan a cycle.

Plus outside a few shops in Pattaya or other areas where lots of foreign bodybuilders live, I doubt you will find much available that isn?t in common usage as prescribed by doctors.

Actually I recall the poster “Phil” writing a mini-article about this about year ago. He talked about his travels in Thailand and I believe he mentioned that gear is actually illegal to purchase there. The OP may want to PM him and see if he can dig up the thread.

Thats what I would be affraid of. The Thais dont mess around!! Thanks for the advice.

I just got back from a trip to Thailand and Philippines. Every chemist shop I walked into (in Thailand) had or could get steroids for me. As far as I believe prescriptions are not required for any drugs.

But yes I knew exactly what I wanted and asked for it - though most pharmacists are not very learned on steroids. In the shops that I bought from they had one staff member who knew, or in another shop the female pharmacist phoned her brother who knew more (a lot more than I know).
