I picked up a couple of tubes of that a couple of years ago when we were in Belize. We just didn't have time to look around to see what else was offered.

We picked up ampicillin in Coz, PDC and Belize. I also saw a sign in Belize advertising Viagara 30 for $90 or 1 for $4. Since you only need 1/2 pill, that is $2 a pop. I did the math.

I love this country!!

Ok I am new to this buying meds in Cozumel but would like to check it out. Do you have problems getting back on the ship or getting off in the US with the meds?

My son was just given a prescription for Benzaclin (it's for acne).
It is a cream.
Does anyone know if I can get this in Belize?
We had it filled but I have two refills.
Our cost is $30.00 per perscription.
I looked at the pictures in the previous post and did not see it on any of the signs.

My wife buying drugs in Belize - much cheaper than Cozumel and no problem getting back on the ship. This place is right in the terminal when you get off the tender.

In general, I think most of what they sell are generic formulas of the name brand stuff. As an example, Meridia is a brand name for sibutramine and sibutramine is what they probably sell, which is why it costs less.

I got Xanax and some very strong diet pills back in 2002.

As a slightly older and wiser person now, I would not recommend buying prescription drugs that are not prescribed for you. The diet pills caused a personality change and brought on symptoms of depression. My dr told me that they can even bring on dementia. Never again. I'd rather be chubby.

The pharmacy I went to was run by an American and was located in the port "mall"

I found several medications we take via prescription in those pictures and the prices are much better than here in the states. Do we know if it is legal to buy them? Any problems getting back on ship or through Customs?

Does anyone know if the pharmacies in Belize sell the blood pressure medicine called Atenolol?
