Legal status on caffeine tablets?


Recommended Posts


I've understood that caffeine tablets are not sold in Thailand due to them being used to cut ice into yabaa.

What I've not been able to get any clear info on is wether or not they are illegal or just the sale of them?
I always bring some with me, so aquiring is not an issue, and I'd bet the police don't care about some farang having a few caffeine tablets.

It's however of interest to know wether or not I'm carrying some contraband around or not?
No clear answers on this, I might ask a doctor something if I get the chance in the future.

Caffeine in itself is clearly not illegal, as it's widely avalible in energy drink form :)

I've noticed that Berocca Boost, that usually has caffeine in them had caffeine missing from the content index.

I prefer caffeine tablets to energydrinks because I only want the caffeine, not the sugar, so tablets are healthier in my opinion.
And I happen to hate the taste of coffe, light havent found any good light energydrinks and anyways I dislike aspartame.

Any clue on the legal status if caffeine tablets in Thailand?

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
