I bought an antidepressant over there about three years ago. I brought along the prescription just in case I needed it. The pharmacist didn't want it, and I never needed to show it to anyone at the border either. However, in last month's archive (or was it the one before that?) someone wrote about someone having a bad experience over there. It seems that the Mexicans wanted a prescription from a Mexican doctor. The American spent some time in jail. I have personally never heard of anyone having problems, but reading that post scared me. Whoever wrote the post also suggested that it might still be cheaper to see a Mexican doctor and then get the prescription over there. I don't know if that helps any, but good luck doing whatever you decide to do.
