my doctor. can i fill this in aruba without a problem

is methadone considered a prohibited drug

thank you. i have been to aruba  many times but my friend has not

Answer
Hello William!! One thing about any type of drug in Aruba is that no matter what the situation, You MUST have the prescription from an Aruban doctor. Any other prescription from anywhere will be ignored.
Only 2 options here...bring the medication to the island (in proper container, etc.) or see a doctor on the island so he can issue any type of drug needed. There is no other way around this.
I fully understand the situation, but Aruba is strict on this policy.
