In 2017, the Federal Swiss Customs Administration (FCA) seized 1060 shipments containing illegally imported medicines. This is an increase in comparison to 2016 (1028). The top five most seized products were: sexual stimulants (59%), illegal imports, antibiotics and painkillers (16%), sleeping tablets and tranquillizers (12%), slimming products (2.5%) and hair growth stimulators (1.5%). As was the case in 2016, most of the illegal parcels were sent from India (44.5%), Singapore and Germany. Customs officers have also reported a rise in shipments from eastern Europe, especially Poland.
