COVID-19 SERVICE UPDATE – OCTOBER 2020
Covid-19 Service Update

At Universal Drugstore, the health and safety of our customers and staff is our highest priority. Due to the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic affecting us all, there have been some changes within our industry in general, and in our company specifically, that we want to make our customers aware of.

Call Center

Our call center hours of operation are 6:00 am – 9:00 pm on Monday to Friday, and 7:00 am – 7:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday. If you are experiencing increased hold times or are calling outside of these hours, please leave us a message or send us an email and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Due to increased demand on telephone networks worldwide, you may experience some intermittent connection problems. If this happens our agents will call you back.

Shipping

We are now seeing improvements in our shipping times. However, things are not yet back to normal and there are still delays occurring. Our normal shipping time averages 1 - 2 weeks. Shipments may take an additional 2 – 4 weeks or more to arrive, depending on the source country of your order. Shipments from the United Kingdom and Canada are generally quicker than from other countries.

Please note that these times are averages and individual shipping times will vary. We highly recommend that you place your order at least 2 – 4 weeks or more ahead of your normal reorder time to avoid running out of your medication.

These are industry-wide delays and are mainly occurring due to disruptions in local postal delivery in the countries where our customers live. They are temporary, and we thank the shipping and delivery personnel who are working hard for all of us during this global crisis.

Please Note: We are now resuming our normal 30-Day Shipping Guarantee. We will provide updates as the situation changes.

Our Commitment

If you have any questions about any changes in our service please do not hesitate to contact us. Our staff are working tirelessly to ensure the timely fulfillment and delivery of all orders. The health of our customers and staff is our highest priority and we remain committed to providing service at the highest level.

We thank you for your support in these challenging times.

Full information about Gadavist

General Information on Gadavist

Gadavist is used during MRI scans in order to clearly visualize areas with abnormal CNS vascularity or disrupted BBB.

The active ingredient in the drug is Gadobutrol, and it falls under the category of gadolinium-based contrast agents. It is given to a patient in the form of an intravenous injection.

When injected, Gadavist rapidly gets distributed in the extra-cellular fluid of the area to be monitored so as to induce better visualization.

Side effects of Gadavist

Your doctor will not recommend you to buy Gadavist if you suffer from severe kidney disease or acute kidney injury/failure and impaired elimination of drugs from your system. Such patients may develop a condition known as NSF, which can be identified by debilitating fibrosis of the muscle, skin, or internal organs.

Gadavist is not meant to be given to patients less than 2 years of age unless extremely necessary or if the benefits of the drug outweigh its risks.

Before undergoing an MRI, inform your doctor or lab professional if you have hypertension, reduced renal function, or diabetes. In such a scenario, he/she will need to make some necessary adjustments before carrying out the procedure.

As Gadavist may make you dizzy, you may not be able to drive a vehicle for a few hours after the drug has been administered. Therefore, take someone along with you who can drive you back home after the procedure.

However, you must inform your doctor if any of these becoming increasingly intolerable after 7 days.

Seek medical attention if you suffer from palpitationa, dry mouth, chills, tachycardia, convulsions, parosmia, flushing, loss of consciousness, pallor, hypotension, or urticarial after being given Gadavist. These are serious side effects of the drug and may lead to dangerous medical conditions if left untreated.

Hypersensitive patients may experience respiratory arrest, bronchospasms, chest pain, circulatory collapse, hypertension, cyanosis, oropharyngeal swelling, laryngeal edema, face edema, conjunctivitis, eyelid edema, angioedema, burning sensation, hyperhidrosis, sneezing, or cough. Seek medical attention immediately if you develop any of these symptoms after being given Gadavist.
