Just thinking back to my last vacation, and how I miss Mazatlan and the ocean, the heat, the dryness and almost no symptoms! I bought several meds while I was there, however, and they were a big help when I got back home. None of the pharmacists I spoke to there had ever heard of Vicodin, but a ton of different meds used something called "paracetamol" where you would normally find "acetominaphen." In Portland here, we're 6 hours from the Canadian border and three hours' air time to Mexico. Has anyone discovered useful drugs elsewhere that aren't available here? Has anyone taken a trip across the border specifically to get meds? Anyone gone on a "med shopping trip" like I've seen on the news? If there are things that do better job of helping us, we need to know what they are.
