Bringing vitamins into Mexico

I take a lot of vitamins and keep them in a pill box, but someone said it could be a problem at customs in Mexico if there not in there orgninal containers? Plus should I pack them in my carry-on or checked baggage?

Thanks!

Yes, they should be in their original containers. Bring them, and all medications, in carry-on, in case your luggage gets lost.

I stay in Bucerias for months at a time these days and I bring plenty of vitamins and prescription meds. from Chicago in their original bottles. Since 1987, Customs in PV has never asked me anything about them, but I guess there's always a first time.

If you run out of a vitamin, even the small drug stores should have what you need. I usually bring the empty bottle to the store, so they can give me the equivalent of it.
