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 Xifaxan

Most people get travelers’ diarrhea by drinking fluids or eating foods that are contaminated with the E.Coli bacteria. Xifaxan or rifaximin is an antibiotic, which is used for treating this condition in people who are at least 12 years of age. This drug does not get absorbed into your blood, but stays in your digestive system and stops the growth of the bacteria. You can buy Xifaxan in the form of oral pills, but cannot use it to treat bloody diarrhea.

Side Effects for Xifaxan

Some of the mild side effects associated with Xifaxan include gas, bloating and stomach pain, nausea, constipation and vomiting, headache, tiredness, dizziness, and swelling of the torso, hands, or feet. The drug can sometimes cause a serious condition in your intestines known as clostridium difficile diarrhea. You may notice this condition only after weeks or months after the treatment. Therefore, it would be better to watch out for the symptoms like stomach cramping, abdominal pain, persistent diarrhea, or blood or mucus in the stools. You should also keep a watch for symptoms of allergic reactions, which may include trouble breathing, swelling of the face, tongue, throat, or lips, hives, and severe dizziness.

Precautions

If you are suffering from a severe liver disease, bloody or watery diarrhea, or diarrhea with fever, your doctor may need to conduct special tests and make dosage adjustments while recommending that you buy Xifaxan. While taking this medicine, your symptoms may get better much before the treatment ends, but you should still take it for the full treatment phase, otherwise the disease may come back or worsen over time. Although Xifaxan is not known to cause harm to an unborn baby, you should inform your doctor if you are pregnant. During the course of Xifaxan treatment, try to avoid consuming contaminated foods and beverages, as they may decrease the efficiency of the drug.

Xifaxan Dosage

If you are taking the drug to treat travelers’ diarrhea, you will need to take one Xifaxan 200mg tablet three times a day for 3 consecutive days. It can be taken with food or without food, but make sure that the tablet is not crushed, chewed, dissolved, or broken. If Xifaxan is being used for treating hepatic encephalopathy, you will be recommended to take one Xifaxan 550mg tablet twice a day. Antibiotics work best when their levels remain constant in your body. Therefore, it would be better to take Xifaxan at the same time each day.

Interactions

Before taking Xifaxan, you should inform your doctor if you have an allergy to rifaximin or any such drugs like rifabutin, rifampin, or rifapentine. Medicines that may contain these drugs include Mycobutin, Rifater, Rifadin, Priftin, or Rifamate. You should also inform your doctor about all the medicines you are taking at present, especially live vaccines. Although antibiotics do not have any effect on hormonal birth control pills, patches, and rings, some of them may curb their efficiency. Therefore, it would be better to use a barrier form of contraception like condoms during Xifaxan treatment.
