COVID-19 SERVICE UPDATE – JANUARY 2021

HAPPY NEW YEAR AND ALL THE BEST IN 2021


Shipping Update

We are now seeing improvements in our shipping times. However, things are not yet back to normal and there are still some delays occurring.

Our normal shipping time averages 1 - 2 weeks. Shipments may potentially take an additional 2 – 4 weeks 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 delays 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 have resumed our normal 30-Day Shipping Guarantee. We will provide updates as the situation changes.

Call Center

Our call center hours of operation are 6:00 am – 9:00 pm Central Time on Monday to Friday, and 7:00 am – 7:00 pm Central Time 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.

What Accuretic is and what it is used for

Accuretic contains the active substances quinapril and hydrochlorothiazide. Quinapril belongs to a group of medicines called angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. ACE inhibitors work by widening blood vessels in the body, which can help to reduce the pressure in the vessels. Hydrochlorothiazide belongs to a group of medicines called diuretics. Diuretics help the body to get rid of extra fluid and are used in patients with high blood pressure. Because they get rid of fluid diuretics are sometimes called ‘water tablets’. Accuretic is used to treat high blood pressure. You must talk to a doctor if you do not feel better or if you feel worse.

How to take Accuretic

Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. Do not wait until your tablets are finished before seeing your doctor. The recommended dose is one tablet each day. Try to take the tablet at about the same time every day. Accuretic can be taken with or without food. Accuretic is not recommended for use in patients who suffer with kidney disease with a creatinine clearance of less than 40 mL/min. Your doctor may increase the dose to two tablets which may be taken together once a day or may be taken separately, one tablet in the morning and one in the evening. Swallow the tablets whole with water. Do not chew, divide or crush the tablets. If you take more Accuretic than you should Taking too many tablets at once may make you unwell. If you take too many Accuretic tablets, tell your doctor or go to your nearest hospital casualty department immediately. If you forget to take Accuretic Do not worry. If you forget to take a dose, miss out the forgotten dose completely and take the next dose at the normal time. Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose. If you stop taking Accuretic Do not stop taking your tablets or alter the dose you are currently taking without seeing your doctor first. It is important to keep taking your tablets. They help to control your blood pressure. If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
