Annually, retirees known as Winter Texans travel to spend the winter along the Texas/Mexico border and while there, many purchase medicine in Mexico. However, strategies that are used when purchasing Mexican medicine and the health implications of doing so have not been adequately explored.

Furthermore, the use of Mexican medication did not increase rates of adverse drug events or decrease health-related quality of life scores.
