Methadone is a controlled "B" drug in Mexico, equivalent to a class 2 drug in the US. Most of the drugs I see mentioned on posts here are also Class 2, class B drugs, most of which are available in farmacias in Tijuana, including such as hydrocodon, percodin, kolonopin,codeine, etc., etc.,and most other opiates, sometimes with a script and sometimes without a mexican docs script.
Methadone is not manufactured in Mexico, so one of the reasons why it is not readily available for purchase.

As I mentioned else on posts, DEA rules allow the import of a medication up to 50 doses, if it is for personal use, unopened, and declared while entering back into the US. Elsewhere, I quoted the DEA guideline letter setting up such, and I listened most recently to Washington DC hearings by the Department of Commerce also reiterating such a policy.
Sorry...I thought you told someone you knew where to purchase such a medication???? There are over 1,000 farmacias in TJ, each vying for US tourist business. The tourists are there for medications they can't afford in the US. I assure you there are not overrunning TJ to buy cheap pottery, which is available just as cheaply in Los Angeles.
