PHARMACY: BEWARE OF PHARMACY TACTICS W/ PRESCRIPTION MEDS

BEWARE OF PHARMACY TACTICS. I WAS ON REVOLUTION STREET IN TIJUANA WHERE THERE ARE DOZENS OF PHARMACY S. TO SHOP FOR MY PRESCRIBED MEDICATIONS FOR ANTIBIOTICS AND PAIN MEDICATION FOR DENTAL WORK I HAD THAT DAY. AT ONE PHARMACY I HANDED MY PRESCRIPTION AND THEY QUOTED ME A CERTAIN A PRICE. AFTER I AGREED TO PURCHASE THEY RELATED THEY MADE AN ERROR AND I HAD TO PAY AN EXTRA FIVE DOLLARS. AT THIS POINT, I NOTICED THEY HAD STAMPED THE BACK OF MY PRESCRIPTION "MEDICATION DISPENSED" IN SPANISH. WHEN I DECIDED I WOULD NOT BUY MY MEDICATION AT THAT PARTICULAR PHARMACY, I TOOK IT TO ANOTHER PHARMACY AND THEY RELATED THEY COULD NOT BUY MEDICATION, IN PARTICULAR (ANTIBIOTICS) BECAUSE IT WAS STAMPED "MEDICATION DISPENSED". I WAS STUCK WITH EITHER GOING BACK TO THE PHARMACY WHO STAMPED MY PRESCRIPTION OR GO BACK TO THE DENTAL OFFICE AND GET ANOTHER PRESCRIPTION. WHAT A HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE! BUYERS BEWARE!

Pharmacies: Border Pharmacy

Hello. New rules have taken effect here in TJ as well as all of Mexico. It is now required to have a prescription for anti-biotics and the like. It use to be that this was not required BUT now is. NO PROBLEM. They also put in place a system to overcome this. Most pharmacies WILL HAVE someone to issue this document ON SITE. Since you are walking across the border, there are MANY pharmacies there. You DO NOT need to take a cab. After you cross into TJ, take the first right that will take you to the MCDONALD's (dont go straight to the yellow cabs) Take a right 100 feet before the yellow cabs. There are at least 10 pharmacies within 100 feet of the Mcdonald's. Suggest you take your USA prescription with to help in both aquisition and return to US. You will also need your passport or equivalent to return to US.

Pharmacies: Your own personal little drug store

*Pharmacies are plentiful in Tijuana

*You can get Viagra, Cialis, muscle relaxants and even pain killers

*Some places won't even ask for a doctors note

*I recommend for pain killers, you bring an empty bottle or photocopy of an old prescription which makes the process nice and easy the first time around. Eventually you'll figure out which stores you enjoy going to and dealing with.

*Pain killers can cost a bit more than in the USA for Perks and Vikes, but it may be worth your while if you don't have a doctor back home who can fullfill a prescription

*Generics are also available

*Some of the generics are made in Mexico while others are from India and South America

*I've never had any friends have issues with their pills, although the dosages sometimes are a bit weaker than the non generics

Generics Drugstore: Drugstores

There are hundreds of drugstores in Tijuana which sell medicines mainly to... U.S. citizens. They are allowed to import legal drugs (registered in US market) but only for personal use and exclusively if prescribed by U.S. doctors. So if you are U.S. citizen take your prescription in case the U.S. customs asks.

What to buy Medicines.

What to pay Much less than in the USA.
