WHERE VACATIONS START!
You think I jest :)
My husband has type 2 diabetes and takes many other medications for many things. He has only one medicine he requires a prescription here in Panama to purchase. He even gets his regular sleeping aides here at the pharmacy. Many of these are less than he paid in the States, Only the pain medications require the prescription. However, he has found several very effective pain killers that do not require prescriptions.
For 3 months he was having his medications mailed to our daughter's house in Tuscon Abby would then forward them to us here. It is no savings.
our neighbor is Candien and she tells me she figured this out several years ago. It is just as inexpensive to buy here as in America and similar in price to Canada. The 2 week time lag was the worst for them.
To pay the doctor in Panama the $ 10.00 for a visit and a prescription is a bargain.
