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.

What Climara is and what it is used for

Progynova TS 100 is a Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). It contains the female hormone oestrogen. Progynova TS 100 is used in postmenopausal women with at least 12 months (1 year) since their last natural period. Progynova TS 100 is used for: Relief of symptoms occurring after menopause During the menopause, the amount of oestrogen produced by a woman’s body drops. This can cause symptoms such as hot face, neck and chest (“hot flushes”). Progynova TS 100 alleviates these symptoms after menopause. You will only be prescribed Progynova TS 100 if your symptoms seriously hinder your daily life.Prevention of osteoporosis After the menopause some women may develop fragile bones (osteoporosis). You should discuss all available options with your doctor. If you are at an increased risk of fractures due to osteoporosis and other medicines are not suitable for you, you can use Progynova TS 100 to prevent osteoporosis after menopause.

How to take Climara

Always apply Progynova TS 100 exactly as your doctor has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. Your doctor will tell you how long you should apply Progynova TS 100 for and whether you should have a gap week (no patch for 7 days). Do not start using Progynova TS 100 until at least twelve months after your last natural period. Applying the patch Remove the protective liner from the patch. Place the patch, sticky side down, on a clean, dry area of the skin of your lower abdomen or buttocks. Do not apply Progynova TS 100 patches to the breasts. Apply the patch to a different site every time. Never apply the patch to the same place twice in a row. Do not choose an area that is oily, damaged or irritated. Avoid the waistline since tight clothing may rub the patch off. Apply the patch immediately after opening the pouch and removing the protective liner. Press the patch firmly in place with the palm of the hand for about 10 seconds, making sure there is good contact, especially around the edges. Change the patch v019_0 once a week. If the patch is applied correctly, you can bath or shower as usual. However, the patch might come off in very hot bath water or in the sauna. If you have been taking other HRT preparations: carry on until you have finished your current pack and have taken all the treatment for that month. Start with the first Progynova TS 100 patch the next day. Do not leave a break between your old tablets and Progynova TS 100. If you have been using HRT treatment with a gap week: start Progynova TS 100 immediately after the gap days. If this is your first HRT treatment: you can start using Progynova TS 100 any day. Continuous use: Apply 1 patch per week. Remove this patch after 7 days and apply a fresh patch to a different site on your body. Cyclical use (includes a gap week): Apply 1 patch per week for 3 weeks. Take a 7-day break and then start again with the next patch. You will have a bleed once a month (so-called withdrawal bleed) while using Progynova TS 100. If you apply more Progynova TS 100 than you should Only apply one patch at a time. If you apply more by mistake you may feel sick, throw up or have some menstruation-like bleeding. If this happens remove the patches. No specific treatment is necessary but you should consult your doctor or pharmacist if you are concerned. If a patch falls off or if you forget to apply Progynova TS 100 If a patch falls off before 7 days are up, it may be reapplied. If necessary, you can apply a new patch for the rest of the 7 days. If you forget to replace the patch for several days you might have breakthrough bleeding and spotting. If you stop using Progynova TS 100 You may begin to feel the usual symptoms of the menopause again, which may include hot flushes, trouble sleeping, nervousness, dizziness or vaginal dryness. Consult your doctor or pharmacist if you are considering stopping your Progynova TS 100 treatment. If you need to have surgery If you are going to have surgery, tell the surgeon that you are using Progynova TS 100. You may need to stop using Progynova TS 100 about 4 to 6 weeks before the operation to reduce the risk of a blood clot (see section 2, ‘Blood clots in a vein’). Ask your doctor when you can start using Progynova TS 100 again. If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
