Because Puerto Nuevo is further off the beaten path than Rosarito, Tijuana, or Ensenada, Farmacias are much more liberal in selling prescription medications over the counter. Not all will, but many farmacias will sell prescription pain killers such as Vicodin and Percocet, Human Growth Hormone and other Anabolic Steroids such as D-Bol and Sustanon, and anti-anxiety and sleep medications such as Xanax, Valium, or Ambien. Although most of these will be the generic forms of the medication, the prices are very cheap and you will not be hassled if you purchase them here.
