From my research, it appears that Methadone is illegal in Mexico.

They only allow it to be used in certain extreme cases, where no other pain relief works, for AIDs patients.

If you are going, you may be better served, if you are on it, to take enough of a supply with you to last for the duration of your trip.

I'm not sure if was ILLEGAL.. but now it isn't and there are even methadone clinics in mexico... you just need a doctors letter... and don't have anything on it about drug addiction or anything about being an 'addict' past present of future... just keep it about pain managment and that if you don't take it you will get dealthy sick... so you MUST have it for daily you. your doctor must be very clear about this. Most doctors if they trust you, are totally cool with helping you out a bit. Mine was.

I used to go to Playa Del Carmen 6 weeks (separately 1 week at a time) every winter and I am Canadian. I am on a methadone maintenance program and so I haven't went in the last year. My brother lives there and no one knows about my affliction. I am running out of excuses of why I can't visit but I have no way of finding out if I can get my methadone there. My doctor will not give me carries here in Canada. I know I can get all the other opiods in Mexico but I want to stick with my program and not risk being sick. It happened once before and I was deathly ill for the whole week until I got back to Canada and went to the doctor. Worst memory of my life. Any info you have would be appreciated. Like do they dispense it? I can get anything I want there cause I have mexican friends that do their mexican thing but if they don't have the actual product then it does me no good.

Mexico is not the drug paradise many seem to believe it is. Like anywhere else you can get ripped off easily. Also the classic Mexican setup is getting turned in to law enforcement by the same one who sold it to you. If you go to Mexico and start asking for drugs you can end up a statistic. If you dont have street smarts and common sense take some good advice and stay home or save the cash on a one way ticket because that is all you will need.

I was in Puerto Vallarta last week and tried to get prescribed some methadone........every pharmacist had to google it! Went to 5 hospitals to no is not available. I had to resort to 20 valium and some T4's and was able to function until I returned home to Toronto.

Depends where you are. They have clinics in most major cities. I once got a cutisy dose by having my clinic call down there. Also there was one place that was selling bottles of 10mg x100 for 150 usd but I heard they have gone out of business.

It is imperative to have your clinical care worker or counselor undertake this process.They have the resources available to help facilitate this.I have 28 day take home privledges so that's never a personal issue for me but I've seen horrific issues in people not planning properly and coming home sick, strung out and starting back at step 1.Please use your clinic services. God bless......

You can bring takehomes out of country. Your clinic provides you with a letter and because it is a prescription it is legal and in your carry on bag. Keep with you at all times. I have done it from MA to a cruise out of miami and flew to jamaica with them. I am currently going on vaca to mexico but counselor will not ok vacation ones.

Re: Jenn (# 12) Expand Referenced Message

It is not ILLEGAL to take methadone outside of the US. All you need is a letter from your clinic stating that you need this medication. I have personally flown overseas with both liquid and tablets with no issues. The person that told you that at your clinic needs to inform themselves properly. I know that there is a website that a lot of clinics use to find out whether or not the country that you are planning on going to allows methadone BUT it is seriously out of date and has not been revised in Lord knows how long.
GOOD LUCK on your travels.
