I have a friend that may have to refill an American perscription in AC or Belize. Is that a problem and if so, what needs to be done to get it filled?

The pharmacies in town are really good and
the meds I received didn't need a prescription....you may want to have your
friend check with their own pharmacist and tell them the dilemma with being out of
country and could they get more meds to
carry over until their return...I've had to
do that!

Thanks for your response Charri.
They'll be checking for extended meds but it sounds like most of the other pharmacies in the Caribe and Mexico. OTC

The medications that are OTC in Belize are they the same kind that are OTC like in mexico, like antibiotics, antidepressants, painkillers (like prescription strength Motrin) or antianxiety medications. Or do you need a prescription for these. Also do the pharmacies carry products like pepto?

The pharmacy and the grocery store have a large choice of medications. Many of the meds like antibiotics that are prescription here, are OTC there. The doctor we used when my son got sick was fabulous, and the charges were very reasonable. Even the meds were reasonable...... You needn't worry.

My experience has been that Belize is much stricter than Mexico about prescriptions, but less strict than the U.S. (e.g. codeine painkillers are over the counter in Belize). But Belize pharmacies expect you to have a prescription for many items that are dispensed freely without any question in Chetumal or elsewhere in Mexico.
