The German Customs published their performance results in 2015. The number of illegal or fake pills confiscated at the German border increased fourfold to 3.9 million in 2015. In the past year, the focus has been on medicines sold online. The products seized are not only steroids, erectile dysfunction, slimness and hair growth products, but also sedatives and sleeping pills. Confiscated pharmaceutical substances came predominantly from China, while finished products were often from India, China, Thailand and eastern EU member states.
