Answers

  1. Why is the cost of medications so much lower overseas?

          Pharmaceutical companies set their prices based on what the average person in a particular country can pay. Think about it for a moment. If the prices for prescription drugs were the same in Calcutta India as they are in New York City, NY, the cost of one prescription would cost a years salary - no one could afford those prices, so no one would buy medicine.
          This "price fixing" has been going on for many years, so less developed countries pay a fraction of what more developed countries pay for prescriptions.
          The problem has been, how do you contact a pharmacy in India, Mexico, Thailand or another less developed country to take advantage of these rock bottom prices? Until recently the only solution was to visit the country and have your prescription filled while traveling abroad. But not anymore! We provide instant access to these pharmacies.

  9. Is it legal to purchase anabolic steroids or controlled substances?

          Most other sites tell you that it is 100% legal to purchase Anabolic Steroids and controlled substances without a prescription. Unfortunately this is not the case.The good news is that only 5% of packages get checked when entering through customs. If is best to keep your order limited to small order to avoid prosecution.

          Yes! Federal Express, Airborne Express and USPS will all ship from Mexico to the U.S. Some use a local Mexican agent but provide fast service with tracking ability.

    Frequently Asked Questions

  12. Are the drugs the same in Mexico?

          Many drugs are identical in name and dosage and are produced by the same big name pharmaceutical manufacturers in Mexico. Sometimes the names are latinized but the products are just the same. I take Proscar manufactured by Merck. It has the same Proscar name in Mexico but the chemical name Finasteride is changed to Finasterida south of the border. The familiar Pepcid becomes Pepcidine but despite the latinized name you can still see the prominent MSD trademark. One of our online Mexican Pharmacies lists every drug by its US and Mexican name.
