I am nearly out a prescription that I cannont do without. I have tried the pharmacies on the island and even went to Chetumal to find it, but was unsuccessful. Is it legal to ship prescription meds from the US into Belize? If so, would it be better to ship via USPS or Fed Ex? How do I know when the package arrives at the Post Office? Any other considerations that I have not mentioned?

Sorry for all the questions, but I haven't had any reason to have anything shipped to me here until now. I am getting slightly desperate. I only have a couple of weeks left.

Thanks for any help you can offer.


Now live from beautiful downtown San Pedro.

Talk with Dr. Lerida or her husband Gary...they bring in medicines for their pharmacy all the time so know the ins and outs.

They are across the street from the Belize Yacht Club. You will see the sign.

Dutch you don't want to get in this predicament again though- it can take 2 weeks plus for someone to fill an order.

Guatemala is a good source for medications too - but it is a 2 week or so delay.

There may even be folks on the island that take your meds so if you start to get really panicky we can ask around.

Ask Lerida's pharmacy girl if they are in the states. If so, they may be able to bring your meds back with them.
