    Default Can I ship a box of medicine to US

    I need to ship some amoxicillin from the capital family members in the US, where there is a shortage. It's OTC here, but is prescription now in the US. Xan I just fedex it or is that against the rules? We're talking like one box, not tons. Is there a way to do this legally short of having aomeone fly to get it? I looked on fedex but am not sure.

    Are you shipping to somebody that has a prescription for it? I wouldn't have a problem doing that. It's not like you're sending opiates. And you can buy amoxicillin online in the States. Not that big of a deal.

    Only for personal use, the medications must accompany the traveler and if a prescription is required for the medication in the USA, then a valid prescription from a US doctor registered as being able to prescribe such medication needs to be presented by the traveler if requested by CBP agents. There are restrictions on the quantities of medications allowed into the country this way.

    More info can be found on the Customs and Border Patrol website.

    No prescription, but I'd rather ship it than go in person. Can I fedex it? I'm reading the link but don't see it yet

    The link is for medication made in the us. What if it wasn't made in the US?

    You are a person not a company or a drug manufacturer. You are not permitted to ship medications to the USA for unaccompanied import. The medication you would like to send is not for personal use so that option is not available to you either. If you don't take it yourself and declare it as personal use it may be confiscated or if you are lucky you might get it in.

    A package on the other hand will likely come under scrutiny and could be subjected to environmental conditions that could affect the efficacy of the medication. You are not supposed to send medication to the US but if you choose to do so, then you must accept any of the possible outcomes such as the package never arriving.

    Every farmacia in the DR has it. In our village even the colmado.

    You can walk into any pharmacy in the Dominican Republic and buy a boat load of amoxicillin
