Most of my friends also gave up on buying drugs in Mexico. My Health is to important to me to take chances with drugs from Mexico. Those cheap costs are made up by poor product and are under no controls. Even my mexican friends living in Texas do not buy drugs in Mexico. In fact they will not make family visits to Mexico because there children will be kidnapped and held for ransom. Because of the conditions in Mexico even our State Dept. warns not to go.
Understand your concern. Where we go is a place set up for Winter Texans. You park your car and walk across the bridge. This area makes a huge amount of money from "Winter Texans". They strive to keep the place safe, even have the Mexican army located right in the town. In the five years we have been going to get medicine's and dental work there has never been an incident. You have to know which drug store to go to as some are not as reliable but just ask some "Winter Texan" that has been going there for a long time and you will find out which pharmacy or which dentist is the best. I would never drive my car over the border.
We don't buy a lot of drugs but my wife will stock up on her blood pressure pills so when we go on long trips we have extra. The package looks exactly the same as what she gets in the states,
