HIV Meds in Mexico

Oct 15, 2007

Considering moving to Oaxaca Mx, can I get my HIV meds there, even if I have to pay full cost? Currently on Kaletra, and Epzicom. Blue Cross Blue shield of Montana at the moment. I suppose I could keep an address in the US and have them shipped DHL to Oaxaca. But this could be a problem too....

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

Epzicom and Kaletra are both available in Mexico. Getting them in Oaxaca city shouldn't be a major issue, though you may likely require a doctor's prescription. Since there are both a private and federal health system in Mexico, I'd recommend getting connected with one of them.

Hope this helps, BY
