  • Testosterone Replacement Therapy

    Hello!


    Im probably moving to Indonesia (Bali) for work this summer. Problem is, I am currently on TRT and have been for some time. I can just buy the medication in a pharmacy here.

    Is it possible to continue my treatment? I have a prescription, of course.


    Thanks for your help!

        Thanks! Done! 

        When I searched on google, I saw that there are some clinics that do provide TRT, but they can be *very* expensive. At the moment I do my own injections after getting the medication at the pharmacy. It would be really helpful to know if I can just get the medication at a pharmacy in order to continue treatment. Is there a pharmacy I can contact to ask them directly, with information I can rely on?

          Indonesia seems to officially only offer injections of Nebido and Sustanon which are expensive but supposedly longer acting and require shots less often. Generic testosterone such as testosterone cypionate or testosterone proprionate does not seem to be available from a pharmacy or a doctors office.

            I am almost sure you can . I never bought inject type medication , but bought many others even without a prescription .

            To avoid fake medication , I suggest you to buy at the farmacies inside big hospitals . In case a prescription is necessary , a doctor consultation is relatively cheap (in a big hospital of my city a consultation is around US$20) .

                I am familiar with Nebido, but not Sustanon. This is good, moving forward! Now I just have to find out if it can be bought in a pharmacy or not....
