Some or all pharmacies who provide a home delivery service for medicines might insist on a prescription for somatostatin before they complete the sale. You can get this information while placing the order for somatostatin with the pharmacy.
Somatostatin is a generic medicine name and there are several brands available for it. Some of the brands for somatostatin might be better known than somatostatin itself. If the pharmacy that's willing to deliver medicines to your home doesn't have somatostatin in stock, you can ask for one of the branded alternatives for somatostatin.
