Does anyone remember NAFTA? It is the North American Free Trade Agreement between Canada, the United States and Mexico. It is supposed to expand the exchange of trade and limit tariffs on products between all three nations. We are not just talking about cars, napkins or food. This applies to prescription drugs as well. But the internet has taken it one step further. We know that prescription pills in Canada are cheaper than their US counterparts. Mexico is now getting into the act with online Mexican pharmacies.
Mexican Pharmacy Advertising
Recently I have begun to see advertising for an online Mexican pharmacy. In the old days, you could drive down to the border, drive over to a Tijuana pharmacy and get what you need. No need now to even drive down. All you have to do is point, click and wait for your delivery. Mexico has caught up to the online age. Chances are if you surf the web, you will see advertisements such as “buy vicodin online” or “buy oxycodone online” from a mexican pharmacy online. The risk you take is whether it is a legitimate pharmacy or a fake pharmacy.
As I do my research online about prescription drugs dispensed in a Mexico pharmacy, there are some things to be wary of. Traveling to Mexico to get a prescription pill is usually the preferred option so you can’t be fooled. The most important thing is to know your medicine inside and out. You have to know what it looks like, what the actual size is and the color. Confirming it with a doctor is also preferred. It is for your safety. Another tip is to compare prices online and between pharmacies. You might not find valium 10mg tablets cheaper in Mexico but rather at Walmart. Also keep in mind to know the spanish name for your drug. As an example, diclofenaco is diclofenac in english. There are some easier to translate than others.
When buying online, be very careful because if it seems to good to be true, chances are it is. If you see advertising to buy oxycontin online and the price is 1/10th of what it is normally sold in the states, chances are the medication is a fake. My best advice is to not try and buy controlled prescription drugs such as vicodin online. These medications tend to have the largest scam potential.
