As I tried to point out, those countries that allow to have imported meds or meds made in that country to be sold in the USA must meet FDA approval and it does not matter where you buy them. The prescription will always be the same. However, many drugs are not FDA regulated or approved. Take Tigan for example, a nausea medicine has been in use in the united states for a long period of time without FDA approval and is finally getting pulled or should I say that providers are not encouraged to keep prescribing. Yes, what you say is true. Mexico has many FDA approved meds at fraction of the cost and so does Canada.
It may be not be a bad idea to buy that weight loss pill while on the cruise. I definitely needed after visiting that buffet line
