Stock up on over the counter pain medications as much as you can. We all know, however, that some pain is just too much for a couple of Advil. So what can you do if you don’t have the access to find these pain relievers? If you know anyone in Puerto Rico or can travel there for a short stay, Tylenol 3 and 4 are available over the counter. Lidocaine and Verced are also available without a prescription. Since Puerto Rico is a territory of the US, there is usually no problem bringing these drugs in or shipping them from there to your address.
There are many pharmacies in Mexico and Canada that have these drugs available in an over the counter form. Getting these into the country may be a little more difficult. Be creative. Puerto Rico is easier and you don’t need a prescription for Tylenol3 (which contains one fourth of a grain of codeine) or Tylenol4 (which contains one half of a grain of codeine) when you are in Puerto Rico. These are common over the counter medications in many pharmacies there. This avoids the scrutiny and the illegality of doing this in Mexico or Canada. See end of this chapter for the phone numbers of some Canadian, Mexican and Puerto Rican pharmacies.
