Peera Pharmacy - Testosterone in stock now?

Recommended Posts

Peera Pharmacy is just starting on an expansion into the open shop next door and may very well be closed next month when the OP arrives.  The excellent pharmacist who runs the place recommended that we purchase a three month supply of our meds to be certain to have everything we need during the remodeling.  The expansion is suppose to take just a couple months, at most, but we all know how these projects have a way of dragging on in Thailand.

Thanks Nancy but is the pharmacist old or not and did you get your testosterone?

Enjoy your Sunday.

Thanks for the heads-up Nancy!

Peera was always very competitive on price and totally trustworthy in terms of only carrying pharma-grade.  "Elderly" lady?  C'mon, she's not that old 🙂  Actually she is one of the best pharmacists I've run into in Thailand; very knowledgeable and honest.  HOnestly, I don;t know of a better pharmacy in Chiang Mai, but if they are not stocking Testosterone yet, I'd be real interested in finding a trustworthy alternative pharmacy in town.  Anybody have suggestions??

 

Probably good advice to carry Rx when travelling (even though no Rx for Test is actually required in Thailand).  My doctor in Chiang Mai gave me one which I keep in my passport when I travel to USA.  I'm driving up to Chiang Mai, not flying, but still a good idea to have it with me I guess.  You never know if you'll run into a cop with a desire to supplement his retirement fund.

 

'Tim's' Pharmacy, Which is owned by said "elderly lady", is in Pattaya, and it is the 'go to' place.

Identical 10 CC bottles of Test E are 1100 baht at Tims, and 1600 baht at the pharmacy a few shops down from Peera.

I hope you're not talking about anything but undecanoate (i.e.: Claris Jatenzo) since there are many "testosterone" capsules on the market that are simply scams.  Only undecanoate has been approved by FDA as an oral form of testosterone for TRT. 

 

Personally, I'm not really into oral delivery since it can have possible negative effects on the liver in the long term.  Further, it has to be taken three times daily in order to be effective, and even then it has an uncertain absorption pattern which results in peaks and valleys of serum testosterone levels throughout the day. 

 

Just my humble opinion but injection of enanthate or cypionate forms seems much more effective and safer.  Just something to consider.

 

ur exactly right, my doctor in the US said there were three acceptable t treatments, that needed to be monitored and adjusted because of the potential side effects and an oral capsule was NOT among the options--the options were injection, gel-rubbed on, and small capsules embedded in the lower buttocks which are then absorbed into the body--the most popular are, of course, the injection and jel.

Just to be accurate, oral Testosterone became a viable option earlier this year BUT only the FDA-approved undecanoate form (i.e.: Claris Jatenzo).  See https://www.pharmaceutical-technology.com/news/fda-clarus-jatenzo-testosterone-replacement-therapy-hypogonadism/ 

 

My opinion (and that of my doctor) is that the injectable route is still far superior to oral (and transdermal) for reasons I already outlined before. That's just my personal view.  Best to consult with a knowledgeable physician to help a person decide if TRT is even a good fit, and if it is, what form is best for a person's situation.  I underscore the word "knowledgeable" because many physicians are very poorly informed when it comes to TRT, or just out to make a buck.  I know that may sound cynical, but it's true.

 

Also, just want to add, for anyone considering self-medication...Even though no prescription is required here in Thailand, that would be a very unwise move no matter how well informed you think you might be.  Serious health issues can arise from improper TRT administration and monitoring, and some can have long-term irreversible consequences.

My mistake, I was thinking of the lady owner at Peera in Chiang Mai, but the lady at Tim's isn't that old either, certainly not elderly.  Furthermore, the owner is actually a family; there are at least 3 family member that run the place, and they are all very knowledgeable pharmacists, and very friendly people.  It's always been a pleasure doing business with them all.

 

I wasn't aware that Tim's or Peera sold bottled Test (vials with rubber tops); only one-use ampules (break off the glass top type).  Are you sure about that?  I've asked both on more than one occasion, and they both said they do not carry vials, only ampules.

 

If you got it, what was brand?

I was shown an 1100 baht 10ML vial 11 days ago - at Tims. All I can say is that my gym bros have been buying 10ML test e vials from from Tims for years, and I have never heard them complain.

The Pharmacy that is a few doors down from Peera sells 10ML vials.

I am blessed with naturally high test, so I rarely supplement.

 

Cheers.

Science turns me on.

 

There's a new book review in Nature (peer-reviewed):

 

clickee: Testosterone: An Unauthorized Biography Rebecca M. Jordan-Young, Katrina Karkazis Harvard University Press (2019)

 

Quote

Anthropologist Katrina Karkazis and sociomedical scientist Rebecca Jordan-Young did not write Testosterone to rehash familiar tales of wacky hormone experiments of yore, although this is one of a few that they include. Their contention is that many testosterone researchers — then and now, and intentionally or not — interpret data with blinkers on. When the facts do not fit the paradigm, the authors argue, findings are moulded into flawed dogma. Karkazis and Jordan-Young strive to comprehend how scientific practice around testosterone unfolds, and explore how the results “circulate and morph in the world”.
