prescription drug purchases in mexico

Does anyone know if you can buy any of the following medications over the counter in mexico. My brothers insurance company told him we might be able to obtain some of his meds here without a prescription. They are Brovana and albuterol puffers, and zetia capsules. Any help would be appreciated.

I know you can get the puffers. I pay $25.00 for 1 after my insurance here in the states. I bought 10 for $70.00 in Mexico last year.

Narcotics & Antibiotics require a prescription from a Mexican MD.

Almost all else is over the counter BUT many are far more expensive than in the US For instance my Simvastatin 80 mg cost me w/insurance $7 for a 90 day supply In the US. In Mexico it's over $240 US.
