    this should be available literally everywhere, over the counter, very popular medicine. the price depends on the exact brand, for example synthroid 112 mcg is 29 pesos per pill (in PP). other brands may be cheaper or more expensive.
    some pharmacies may offer a nice discount if you buy larger supply and pay in cash, always worth asking.

    Come to Cabrera.... I can show you higher prices.

    Your experience isn't mine -- but that matters little
    I find almost the same at Carol Rx....

    But it is interesting... how the prices vary by region.....and they do - as you say

    Wow. I had to buy this (100 mcg) once in SD, my sister-in-law called a pharmacy and they delivered it, holy moley, I got ripped off.

    Good to know, thanks

    Wish I knew it earlier, flying down the 23rd, too soon to refill my prescription, so I paid out of pocket for 30 pills. $26.

    Do you have to be a resident or have a medical card/insurance to get these prices?
    Where is this in Sosua or Charamicos?

    This probably doesn't help, but I buy my wife 125 mgc Synthroid 90 pills $35 from Canada.

    No insurance cash only; don't offer information.

    Just walk in and buy it. There is a street called Enrique Estrada in los Charamicos. It's misspelled on the official document. There's a surprise.





    Google map Calle Enrique Estrada # 6 Sosua


    The map doesn't appear to be identifying #6. Maybe someone who lives, works or recreates in Sosua can do a flyby to see if there is a Promesecal on that street.

    Their logo:
