In today's episode I go to two pharmacies in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico to learn more about how prescription drugs work.
What Did I Learn?
I learned that you can buy A LOT of things over the counter in Mexico. Xanax, Viagra, Valium, steroids, and much more.
Now, some of those may be the generic brand of the drug, but the process to get them is still much easier than in the United States.
Here are the prices that I was able to write down:
Valium- 220 pesos, 12.54 USD
Xanax- 540 pesos, 30.79 USD
Cialus- 1500 pesos 85.53 USD
Claritan D 10 pack- 163 pesos, 9.29 USD
Sostenon- 420 pesos, 23.95 USD
Deca (1 month supply) - 681 pesos, 38.83 USD
So what can't you buy from the pharmacies?
You can't buy any sleeping pills or more serious pain killers. It was indicated that those are regulated pretty heavily, but I believe the process to go to the doctor to get a prescription is pretty simple and straightforward. Also, you can't get any antibiotics over the counter. Those need a prescription as well.
In tomorrow's vlog we are going to speak to a doctor and learn more about what the healthcare system is like in Mexico, how much it costs to see a doctor, and what wait times are like!
Here are the addresses of the two locations that I visited in the video:
Olas Altas 385, Emiliano Zapata, 48380 Puerto Vallarta, Jal.
Basilio Badillo 216-2, Emiliano Zapata, 48380 Puerto Vallarta, Jal.
The second address is to a store right next door.
