ENSURE THAT ALL INJECTING EQUIPMENT, IMAGE AND PERFORMANCE ENHANCING DRUGS ARE KEPT OUT OF THE REACH AND OUT OF SIGHT OF CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE

Oil based Steroids

Oil based steroids should NOT be refrigerated as cooling will make the solution thick and difficult to draw up the needle.  Oil based steroids should be kept at room temperature - out of the reach and out of sight of children and young people.

Water based Steroids

Water based steroids should be refrigerated in a sealed container, away from foods and out of the reach and out of sight of children and young people.

Powder products (Growth Hormone, Melanotan etc)

When in powder form, Most other hormones and all dissolved solutions (powders and water mixture) should be stored in the fridge in a sealed container away from foods and out of the reach and out of sight of children and young people.

Many of these substances can have serious effects in young children. It is therefore essential that all such substances are kept secure and out of reach of anyone other than the adults for whom they are intended.
