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.

Description of Cipro XR

Cipro XR is a prescription medication containing ciprofloxacin. Ciprofloxacin is an antibacterial drug used for a wide range of medical conditions. The extended release tablets are used to treat bacterial infections that occur in the urinary tract (i.e., in the bladder, ureter, urethra or kidney). The drug class to which Cipro XR belongs is called fluoroquinolone.

Patients should only buy Cipro XR 500mg or 1000mg if they are not allergic to its active ingredient, ciprofloxacin, or any of the following inactive components: magnesium stearate, crospovidone, polyethylene glycol, hypromellose, succinic acid, titanium dioxide and silica colloidal anhydrous.

Ciprofloxacin extended release tablets (as Cipro XR is generically called) work by inhibiting the binding mechanism in the DNA of the bacteria and preventing them from duplicating.

Indications & amp; Dosage of Cipro XR

Ciprofloxacin is available in various forms. They are not interchangeable. Cipro XR is particularly indicated for the treatment of the following conditions:

  • Acute cystitis, commonly known as uncomplicated urinary tract infection ;
  • Complicated urinary tract infection (UTI);
  • Acute uncomplicated pyelonephritis;

Cipro XR dosage varies according to indication, the patient’s medical condition and some other external factors. The usual recommended doses as per indications are given below:

  • Patients suffering from acute cystitis should take 500mg tablets once a day for 3days.

  • For patients with complicated urinary tract infections, the treatment period lasts between 7 and 14 days, with 1000mg tablets being taken once daily.

  • Pyelonephritis patients may take 1000mg Cipro XR once every 24 hours for one or two weeks.

Doctors may advise some patients to take Cipro XR in doses different from those stated above. It is advisable that patients adhere to the doctor’s instructions in such a case.

Cipro XR tablets should be stored at 25 degrees Celsius.
