Bringing prescription drugs from Canada to Mexico

Recommended Posts

I need some cancer medication that is available in Mexico but quite expensive.  I can order the same drug online and have it shipped to Canada.  The cost for a year's supply is what one month's supply would cost in Mexico.  I was thinking of having it shipped to my sister in Canada and then flying up there and bringing it back.  It would still save quite a bit of money.  However, my main concern is what will happen when I go through Mexican customs on my return and they discover a year's supply of the drug.  Has anyone ever tried this before?

I have regularly flown and driven in with 6 to 12 months supply of prescription. The meds should be in your name and you should have a copy of your prescription with you. You don't have to go all the way to Canada. Just ship them to a chain hotel in Houston or San Antonio someplace you can fly nonstop cheap, marked with your name and Guest. Tell the hotel when you make your reservation that packages are coming to please hold them. My drugs frequently come from India or England or other countries.

Most of the time you get through with no questions asked,  but you need to have the paperwork just in case you do get stopped...
