No you can take your prescription medication into Mexico. Your meds must be in your prescription bottles with the labels on them that the pharmacy puts on them. That label is recognized as a perscription from your US doctor. Also, if you should have to see a doctor in Mexico and he prescribes you any medications, you will have to provide the written prescription from the Mexican doctor to customs when you return. Hope that helps and hope you have a great time on your trip. Best place to look for info on these types of things I believe is the Customs and Border Patrol pages. I think its cpb.gov
