Best price for Tramadol pain medications

Post by stewardess on Mon Mar 07, 2016 5:23 pm

My neighbor emailed me about purchasing him some Tramadol, as I use it for my back spasms. I don't take it often so my large bottle has lasted me one year. However, I am finding that the local farmacias only sell 10 tablets boxes of Tramadol and the price is pretty high. Is that normal around here?

As I purchased my bottle of 100 in Cabo while on my honeymoon. and I can't even find larger quantities than 10.
Have the rules changed here regarding Tramadol? Have others purchased Tramadol locally in larger quantitites?
Is there other medications for pain available over the counter without a RX?

Any informationn would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know about pain medication but I was amazed at all the over-the-counter medicines coming in small quantities in blister pack as I was used to buying big bottles of aspirin, etc.

Call Farmacia Express II on the carretera in San Antonio. 766-0656 She speaks perfect English.

Have you tried Farmacia Christina? I don't have any really recent info about tramadol, so things may have changed since then. I last bought it about a year ago at Farmacia Cristina , and it was relatively cheap -- the brand was Citra 50 (50 mg tramadol), 100 pills per bottle.
Farmacia Cristina is at Plaza Bugambillas in Ajijic.

Yes, Farmacia Cristina. Ask for it in a bottle as the blister packs really drive the price up. I get my enalapril in a bottle too at about $3US/hundred rather than $7US/30 in a blister pack.

Dr. Garcia explained to me that most Mexican families cannot afford more than a week or twos prescriptions at a time. There is little demand for three month supplies.

That explains the size of packaging perfectly.  It is done with the marketing to the vast majority of Mexicans and not a few expats.

Thanks for all of your help. I went to Cristina Farmacia and got a bottle of 100 tramadol for 284 pesos. So that is better than other places I have looked.

Costco's price for tramadol is the best I've found: $23 for 10 (50mg). $54 cheaper per 100 than the Cristina bottle, but you do have to deal with the blister packaging.
