Re: Filling Medications in the Bahamas
There are odd quirks even in the US. In some states, you can get an out-of-state rx filled exactly ONCE, and then any remaining refills are voided out and the rx cancelled. Best bet, if you are on a medical plan, is to get their response in writing. And then check with the specific countries that you will be visiting. Ask the US embassy, consul, whatever they have there, and ask the locals. There will probably be a local pharmacy in each location that has some kind of internet presence, try to ask directly.
If all else fails, "your" home pharmacy may be able to express them to you, either by courier or US Mail if you plan ahead for mail drops, and leave them with the right packaging.
