What medication can you bring from Mexico?

I am visiting Mexico soon and I heard the medicine is cheap there.

You can bring anything you want but there are far fewer rules to making medication. Nobody is preventing them from selling you a bunch of capsules of just sugar. Also, nobody is protecting you from buying dangerous goods. Even though the drugs are cheaper, you just don't know what you are getting.

Any medication purchased in Mexico that requires a prescription to acquire here in the states is illegal to bring back if you do not have a valid prescription.

You can bring over the counter and prescribed medicines back into the country as long as they are appropriate for the duration of your stay and have a valid prescription associated. One should be wary, however, of drugs obtained from outside the United States, especially those from questionable sources, as these drugs are not regulated by the FDA.

All medication from foreign countries is restricted and may not be safe or effective. Buyer beware! You will usually not be stopped if it is for your personal use, less than a 90 day supply, you have a prescription and it is not a scheduled drug like codeine.

You can bring across the border any medicine that is accompanied by a valid prescription written here in the United States; same type and amount prescribed.


Answer by  Sergiu (344)

You can import legally medication only for personal use in reasonable amounts. There are no restrictions on over the counter sold medication, but if the drug requires a prescription in US then you need to have a valid one with you.
