Good Pharmacy that sells farang needs

Post by dalmatiandave » Thu Jan 02, 2014 4:32 pm

Now I know nobody will believe me but I have an American friend coming in to visit me in the near future, he has asked me where he can buy Testogel (a Testosterone ointment). He said he bought it in Pattaya before (sure you can buy anything there) but he is coming to Hua Hin and asked the question. I said I will ask around, also asked why he needed it and he just said he uses it when on holiday.

So if anybody knows of a pharmacy that might supply this cream/ointment I/he would be grateful.

Now the gels that's another matter, lovely things.

He is actually in the Philippines and has bought Testogel in Pattaya before, he obviously swears by it or he wouldn't be asking me. I am only looking for an answer not a argument for/or against it's use or worth.

Any other solid sighting info would be gratefully accepted. If it's not in Hua Hin it isn't but asking is all I am doing.

MODERATOR: If this stuff is illegal here I suggest this thread be closed.

No sure if they sell it here but if your friend got it in Pattaya then I would assume pharmacies in Hua-Hin would have it as well. Most pharmacies here will sell you whatever you want so long as they have it in stock.

It's an anabolic steroid so comes under prescripton drugs. In that case it's probably sold here without prescription. Illegal in sports but okay for personal use.

Testosterone is not illegal here. You can buy the capsules in any pharmacy but the injectable stuff you may need to search around. Never seen an ointment but I'm sure a pharmacy will have it if they have everything else. 5 injectable vials are 1050 baht. 8 capsules are 150 baht, so you should be within that range.

If you have trouble finding it I could get you some (or at least ask) from Bangkok and bring it down for you as I'll be back on the 10th.

Let me know by PM if I can help... no bother. Just a crate of chang would be fine

The thing that is worrying about gel, unlike tablets or capsules, is that storage is important and exposure to high temps can make it ineffective. It is not difficult to get a prescription in the us. I was also advised to get a PSA test done before using it. If that is high and you are a candidate for prostatic cancer, it is not good to use it.

^ I agree that it's not good for you. Also keep it in the fridge because of the temperature here.

The only reason I took it was that I got very sick a while back and dropped 10 kilos (from 68 to 58) and I wanted a kind of 'cheat' per se to get my weight back quickly with a hard exercise routine to boot. I was told after the 6 week course to take tamoxifen daily for 10 days to get my body back to 'normal'. Had no side effects at all fortunately but I'm sure it's hit and miss. Now back to a healthy 73 kilos. :D

Won't be taking them again. Apprently they don't do wonders for the size of the old meat popsicle too if you know what I mean.... :wink:

Thanks for those who gave a more positive reply. I have located some capsules, I have advised my friend by Skype this morning and he appears happy that, should he need them, he will be assisted in that endeavor. Thanks GLC for your response, think now I won't need use of your kind offer, thanks.
