Hi guys! im going to be staying in northeast thailand (not sure exactly where yet) for the next 6-8 months and have a question or two regarding steroid use and gyms in thailand.

As far as i have read steroids and other AAS are available over the counter in most pharmacies in thailand, although most of the reports i have read have been on the major tourist areas. Is this still the case for pharmacies in the rest of thailand, and more specifically north east thailand? As in could i walk into the local pharmacy and buy them without any trouble?

I have also read that gyms (specifically decent body building gyms) are only really found in tourist areas aswell. Are there likely to be gyms in northeast thailand?

I dont wish to debate the use of steroids, i have studied endocrinology for 4 years so its not likely im going to learn anything new on here :)

Thanks

You can buy anything your heart desires in Thailand's relaxed pharmacies. No doubt they will have it for you or be able to get it for you.

You sound like my friend, he had the same question. But I am sure he did not study endowhatever for 4 years, so I don't think he is you.

Yeah, you can get steroids but will it be real or just junk that is possibly harmful to you??
