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.

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.

What Axert is and what it is used for

Almogran is an antimigraine agent which belongs to a class of compounds known as selective serotonin receptor agonists. Almogran is believed to reduce the inflammatory response associated with migraines by binding to the serotonin receptors in the brain (cranial) blood vessels and causing them to narrow. Almogran is used to relieve headaches associated with migraine attacks with or without aura.

How to take Axert

Almogran should only be used to treat an actual migraine attack and not to prevent migraine attacks or headaches. Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. Adults (18-65 years old) The recommended dose is one 12.5 mg tablet which should be taken as early as possible after the onset of the migraine attack. If your migraine attack does not subside, do not take more than one tablet for the same attack. If you experience a second migraine attack within 24 hours, a second 12.5 mg tablet can be taken but you must leave at least two hours between your first and second tablet. The maximum daily dose is two (12.5 mg) tablets within 24 hours. Tablet(s) should be swallowed with liquid (e.g. water) and can be taken with or without food. You should take Almogran as soon as possible after the onset of the migraine, although it is still effective if taken at a later stage. Severe kidney disease If you have severe kidney disease do not take more than one 12.5 mg tablet every 24 hours. If you take more Almogran than you should If you accidentally take too many tablets, or if someone else or a child takes this medicine, talk to a doctor or pharmacist immediately. If you forget to take Almogran Try to take Almogran as you have been prescribed. Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten tablet. If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor, pharmacist or nurse
