I have tried looking on the customes site, and the "Know before you go" pdf that they have, but there is no specific info on whether or not you can pick up antibiotics for personal use. Other than you need a prescription for the controled substances. (which I don't want to start with). We used to be able to walk across the border and just pick up a bottle or two once in a while with no problem. Anybody have any ideas if that is still ok to do?

its not that CBP would look the other way, they are responsible to enforce over 40 other agency laws and regulations. It can be somewhat dangerous taking medication that is not approved in the USA. Granted it depends on what meds you are talking about.
My funny story is I was in mexico city airport with some pesos leftover so i went into the pharmacy and asked if they sold Retin A. They said yes and asked for what was equivalent to US$36. I had to get rid of my pesos so I bought it but thought it wasn't much less than what I paid in the U.S. for my small tube. When I unpacked and took it out of the bag it was the size of a giant toothpaste tube. I still laugh when I use it (once in a while). This tube should last me a lifetime.
