Ambien in Mexico?
Can you buy it in the pharmacias?

I'm thinkin most likely....Noticed in Belize that sold just about everything, plus the store was right at the port.

Just because you can buy something abroad doesn't mean that Customs will allow you to bring it back into the country. Bringing in anything that is considered a narcotic is usually a big no-no. Not sure how Ambien is classified, so do your homework first.

Ambien is NOT sold in Mexico, but it is sold in Belize.

Ambien is a non narcotic drug belonging to the Hypnotic-sedative drug group. Be careful buying it on the internet or maybe in other countries - some have been found to have a drug mixed in it called "Haldol" which is a psychiatric anti-psychotic drug. I work in the field so I am familiar with Ambien.

Actually, a touch of Haldol might be a good thing! :D

As I understand it, very few medications that require a prescription in the US can be obtained without a prescription in Mexico. That being said, you may be able to get a recommendation for a physician who will write a prescription for you. The cautions listed above should be taken seriously. It's much easier, safer and likely cheaper to just ask your regular physician at home to prescribe it. A generic form is now available that is quite inexpensive.
