If I have a prescription written by an american doctor, can i fill it at a mexican pharmacy?

I will be traveling to mexico..can i fill my ‘scipts while i am there?


  1. Actually, some medications which need prescriptions in the U.S. are over-the-counter in Mexico. But just in case, you should fill your prescriptions before you go. The insurance company can make an exception if the refill is too close to the date of the last refill. We went to Canada last summer and we refilled our son’s prescription just in case he needed it. I told the pharmacist we were travelling out of the country and he said that the insurance company authorized the refill even though it was less than 30 days since the prior refill.
