Long-Term Medication

We’ll be cruising the Caribbean, Bahamas, maybe Mexico for 6 months or more. I cannot get more than a 3-month supply of meds we take regularly before we leave. What will I need to get meds in those areas? Thank you. Claire

Hi Claire: Generally speaking, you can get just about any medications outside the US for substantially lower prices. In fact, there are lots of folks in S. border states who go to Mexican pharmacies to get their medications. However, if you need something specific and perhaps cutting edge, the answer might be different. As far as large doses, we’ve always been able to obtain very large batches of whatever was required once the prescribing doctor understood the situation–i.e., that we’d be out of touch for long periods. Hope this helps–Steve
