I had heard that in CR getting prescription drugs without a prescription is basically pie. That being said, I don't want to go into a pharmacy and make an American ass of myself. Is it truly that easy? What exactly do they have? As of 2008 I heard they did not have Adderall, and only had the 10mg regs of Ritalin. How should I ask, and what should I ask for? What is the general cost, so I don't get taken?

Don't worry, I am not a drug seeker, I had a legit prescription in the states. Just ran out, not enjoying myself without it. Neither is my wife Smile

I too take medication but many are sold only in the USA. So far, I've found the best bet is to have a friend/family member ship them down here for you [list aspirin or such and use regular postal mail, not FedEx or DHL]
If you find a better solution, PLEASE pm me!

When I was there a couple years ago, you couldn't legally get amphetamines. It was possible, and seemed legal, to get a months supply mailed to you from the US, provided you had a trusting doctor and good friend. Getting the package on time, well, that was another matter.
