Looking 4 a Dr. 2 take over my chronic pain medication from the US.


Recommended Posts

I can't be the only person with chronic pain in all of lake Chapala. Would even travel to Guadalajara for my meds once a month. Any help would be more than greatly appreciated. I have horrible fibromyalgia with debilitating fatigue, arthritis in my neck low back pain from a joint in my spine.  I was recently found disabled in the US and came here for the climate. Thank you Jodee chappell

I understand that in Mexico the average Dr. can not get or prescribe strong pain medications. And that should you really have a need for extra strong pain Medications that it has to be prescribed by a specially licensed pain Dr.  So, I guess, you will need to visit your GP who will judge whether you need these meds or not and if you do Your GP can set up an appointment with the pain specialist, whom I was told is in Guadalajara.>  At least that used to be the way some 5 to10 years ago.

I have been disabled by chronic  pain conditions for almost twenty years, so don't  assume you know what my life is like.

I did not suggest that my countrymen do not suffer, but from my own mexican family members, all with financial resources, I  learned that they don't  necessarily  lean on opiates for pain relief.

Personally, I have tried them and found alternatives to be the better path for me. To each his own.
