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.

General Information On Xeloda

Xeloda is a cancer medication used to treat specific types of cancers such as cancer of the colon and rectum, which has spread to other parts of the body. The generic name of the drug is Capecitabine. It works to slow down or stop the growth of cancer cells and reduce the size of tumors. Xeloda is also used to treat colon cancer after surgery and to treat breast cancer, which has spread to other parts of the body and has not subsided in spite of taking other medicines. You need to exercise caution and consult your doctor before you buy Xeloda.

Side Effects for Xeloda

Some people may experience side effects after taking Xeloda such as loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, weakness, tiredness, joint/back/muscle pain, sleeping problems, headaches, and dizziness. The intensity of some of the side effects can be curbed by introducing some changes in your lifestyle and diet such as eating several small meals. You should contact your doctor if any of these side effects worsen or persist for a long time. However, you should stop taking Xeloda and seek medical help if you experience severe side effects such as painful swelling/redness/sores in the throat or mouth or severe vomiting or nausea, stomach pain, and vision changes. In such a case, your doctor may lower the dose of the medication or stop Xeloda treatment altogether. A severe allergic reaction to Xeloda is very rare and may include: swelling of the face/throat/tongue, rashes, or breathing problems.

Precautions

You should not take Xeloda if you have any allergies or are allergic to Xeloda or 5-fluorouracil. The drug should not be used if you have certain medical conditions such as a certain enzyme deficiency (such as dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase deficiency) or kidney disease. You should inform your doctor about your medical history of heart problems, liver problems, kidney problems, or blood disorders. If you are taking Xeloda, you should not take any immunizations or vaccinations without your doctor’s consent. Stay away from people who have recently taken an oral polio vaccine. Xeloda increases your sensitivity to the sun, so you should avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight or sunlamps.

Xeloda Dosage

The drug is available in the form of a tablet. The medication is available in two strengths: Xeloda 150mg and Xeloda 500mg. The dosage is determined by your doctor, who may generally recommend a treatment cycle of two weeks. A rest period of one week is to be observed after two weeks of Xeloda treatment. You should take one Xeloda tablet with food or within 30 minutes after eating your meal.

Interactions

Xeloda may interact with other drugs and cause certain side effects. It may react with blood thinners such as Warfarin, Phenytoin, or Fosphenytoin. Your doctor may be aware of the possible interactions of Xeloda with other medications, and so, you should tell your doctor about every medicine you take, which includes prescribed, non-prescribed, and herbal medicines.
