Testosterone replacement in Bangkok

I purchased T over the counter in Bangkok - I use the German-manufactured ampoules and have about 18 months supply with me 🙂

Which pharmacy did you get them at?  And how do you know if it is reliable or not?  Do the pharmacies also sell HCG and E2 blockers?  Did you have any trouble carrying such a huge supply on an airplane without a dr. script?

I have a prescription.  A 'huge' supply is 2 small boxes of ampoules.  The testosterone manufacturer is Rotexmedica GmbH from Germany and I've never had a problem.

Which pharmacy did you buy the Rotex from - how much was it?

 

Buying Test in Udon is not easy, & Testoviron is out of stock.

 

I went to see a Doc who "specialises" in hormones; 9000 for Nebido or 600 per injection (2x month) for Enanthate.

Said I'd think about it....

I seem to recall that it was the small pharmacy with the sliding door next to Raja Fashions/upstairs internet shop, just around the corner from Soi 4 Nana Plaza.  I had to show my prescription document.  I can't remember the cost, but it was nothing to be shocked at, maybe 1,500 baht for 20 ampoules.

HGH and I think also estrogen blockers cannot be legally obtained without prescription.  T preparations can.

I think he was asking about HCG not HGH. And yes I have bought that once here, but few places stock it. It's normally used by women to treat infertility, but also has the effect of increasing testicle size and activity. 

I have travelled with a 2 year supply of Testosterone before, never had a problem but that's because they never saw it. I didn't put it in my hand luggage, but anyway I also have a prescription just in case.

January 26, 2019
Gentlemen:

I regret to inform you that much of the information in this thread is too dated to be of use, including the recent posts as of January 19, 2019. 

In one of the January 19 posts, we are told of a store that is sure to sell Testoviron [Testo].  The post reads, "operating from memory, the store is located ..." 

I just returned from a mission to the store to which we were referred.
No. 
The date on the referral post itself may be recent, but how old is the writer's memory?
  This is particularly relevant now since (as described below) "all change all the time."

In prior years I have indeed purchased Testo from Dr Olivier in Pattaya; from the pharmacy "between soi 22 & 23" on Sukhumvit; and the pharmacy on near Soi 4 on Sukhumvit.   All of these shops are featured on more than one post in this thread [including the post mentioned above]. 
Today, none of these shops have Testo.

All of them- including Dr Olivier, whose sole business [if I may simplify] is selling Testo incarnations- say the same:
don't have it now, do not know when will have it, company not supplying. 
Why is the company not supplying "Everything changes all the time."

In truth, this is always accurate of course; but especially about Thailand at least over the last 30 years of my personal experience.  And especially in all things to do with medication. 

I've tried the hospital route, as well- Vejithani Hospital: even at hospital prices, Testo is still far cheaper in Thailand than in my country.  But the good endocrinologist at Vej told me that he would have to verify my Testo levels; in order to do that, I would have to stop treatment and wait a period so that there was no residual Testo in my system from medication taking now- only then would the doctor consider having my blood tested.
  This despite a valid Rx from my own country, where a condition was originally diagnosed
We all are aware a man's condition when he stops the medication.
In a word: screw that. 

Here is where it stands as of this day,  January 26, 2019:
In Thailand, today, Testo is
-not readily available via shops
-Via hospitals, too many hoops to jump- even if you already have a valid Rx from a western country and choose to buy in Bangkok via doctor [or at least, via endocrinologist at Vej Hospital- should note that no visit to the doctor is free, regardless of the better prices here].

So-
-What are our alternatives in Thailand, then, gentlemen?  [I know, you can go to Dr Olivier for Nebido.  In the past I've tried Nebido at this doctor's office.]
-Any other suggestions?
-Hopefully, despite best efforts, I'm wrong:
Any pharmacy I've missed?
That is, any pharmacy
in which one of us within last week actually did indeed successfully buy Testo- anywhere in Thailand?

Thank you for the suggestion, Sheryl. 
Hope springs eternal.
Today is Sunday. 
I will try to contact Maxuimum Performance Wellness Clinic tomorrow

The first question will be: is Testoviron available at your clinic
If/When I learn
anything that seems of value, I will respond via this forum topic.

Well, since I made my last purchase of Enanthate from that pharmacy less than 3 months ago, I can say that my memory is good for at least 3 months 🙂

 

Let me re-iterate.  The pharmacy initially told me that they did not stock Enanthate ampoules.  After I showed them my prescription, their attitude completely changed and they produced boxes of the medicine from Rotexmedica, Germany.

 

I know that one doesn't need a prescription to purchase Enanthate in Thailand.  Perhaps that pharmacy prefers to restrict their supply to those older men with a doctor's prescription, rather than the younger muscle guys who probably are not lacking in testosterone anyway ...

 

Update:

If you are unable to buy in the shop, why don't you buy online?  A quick Google search found Rotexmedica 20 ampoules for 139 euros, supplied to those with a prescription....

To Sheryl:

I spoke with Maximum Performance today.  The clinic does not sell Testo per se. You must register for their monthly program.  The lady with whom I spoke suggested I come into the clinic for an eval. 

I've already had eval and all pre-medication blood work. 
Indeed I am just now returned from the lab in Bangkok where I have had blood drawn regularly over the last few years when in Thailand.


But thank you for the recommendation. 
I am inclined to just pay the extortionate prices and buy when I return to my country- however, the medication is not dispensed in quantity in home pharmacies in 'bulk' for when I need it here.   My own difficulty at the moment is not so much price as availability. 
 

To Simon43:
Thanks for the update. 
Sorry; but I did not intend a comment directed at health of anyone's memory- but a comment directed to need for 'dates of purchase' in order for this discussion to continue to be of value.  


Sorry to have overlooked your mention in a prior post that you had shown your Rx in order to buy the med at the pharmacy near Soi 4.  In truth that idea never occurred to me, though I even had the Rx with me when I entered the pharmacy just a couple days ago.

I think you'll agree that having to produce an Rx to buy an over-counter medication sounds uncharacteristic for a Thai pharmacist- to refuse a legal sale.  Unless- it is no longer legal.  I wonder if Testo's regulation in Thailand has changed. 

We are told the the problem is with 'the supplier', but that may be a Thai euphemism for no longer available without a prescription.  However, Dr. Olivier [whom I visited as recently as this time last year- February, 2018] had the same response [supplier problem].  Given that dispensing medication after blood work to men who would benefit is his business , I am prepared to accept that Testo Enanthate has become unavailable in Thailand [Dr. Olivier does has other forms of Testosterone in house]

Hence my original hopeful contact with this forum.

Finally, thanks for your note that Testo may be purchased online- but this I will not do.   Perhaps I am overly suspicious, but as a personal rule I use no medication unless I can be absolutely certain of its authenticity, least of all a medication I intend to inject.  But again, thanks for taking the time to suggest.

If Dr Oliver has 'other forms of Testosterone' why don't you use them?

 

Testosterone is all the same, only the ester (absorption rate) is different.

"Testosterone is all the same, only the ester (absorption rate) is different."

 

I disagree.

 

Nebido's value [I've tried it]varies widely according to patient.

 

Nebido cannot be self-injected. You are married to a clinic.  Return to your country and you would need someone who knows Nebido to inject it.  Reports confirm that a nurse who gives other injections regularly will still inject Nebido incorrectly.  Please see reliably documented sites on internet.

 

Should price be an issue, Nebido is far more expensive on injection/time comparison.  [3-4 month injection Nebido, not counting paying for injection service, costs 8-10,000 baht; 3-4 months Testoviron at 3 weeks between injections, would for, say, 15 weeks cost maybe 1,000 baht (a quarter of a 4,000b box of 20 ampules].  By these prices, Nebido is 8-10 times more expensive than Testoviron used to be in Thailand.


'Sustenon' is known to be much more painful; it is also IM but it tears the muscle on injection, according to literature-  I've never used it but have enough problem with self-injecting already.

 

Cypianate is not sold in Thailand.

 

There are other Testosterone types available, but they are no more all alike [but for ester] than are all types of antibiotic.

Testosterone is a hormone that occurs naturally in the body.

 

Exogenous Testosterone is suspended in a carrier oil for injection. This carrier oil enables it to be absorbed at different rates.

 

Sometimes it is suspended in water, but this is if no use or interest for TRT.

 

Depending on this carrier, the absorption rate differs.

 

Nebido can be self administered, but as it's a 4 ml ampule, doing so can be awkward.

 

All injections, no matter what the compound, will tear the muscle.

 

Testoviron, which is a brand name for Testosterone Enanthate, has a half-life of approximately 14 days.

 

Administrating at 21 days is incorrect, as the hormone level, will not be stable.
