Help Us to Protect Public Health

  • October 4, 2018


As you’d expect, the sale of anabolic steroids in gyms, online or anywhere outside of a pharmacy in Ireland is illegal. These are highly potent medicines that should only be used under prescription and the direction of a doctor to treat a small number of very specific health conditions.

If you have any concerns about suspicious activity linked to the illegal sale and supply of steroids in your local gym, sports club, school or locality, then please get in touch. You could really be helping to protect the health of young people in your area.

You can contact us on (01) 634 3436 or by emailing Any information you provide will be dealt with in strictest confidence.

If you haven’t heard of us, we’re the HPRA and an important part of our role is to promote the safe use of medicines. It is also part of our role to protect members of the public from the supply of illegal prescription medicines.

The #zerogains campaign is brought to you by the HPRA – the Health Products Regulatory Authority.
