It would be best to get this clarified while placing the order.
Please be aware that you should take erythropoietin only if a doctor has recommended or prescribed it. Some or all pharmacies who provide a home delivery service for medicines might insist on a prescription for erythropoietin before they complete the sale. You can get this information while placing the order for erythropoietin with the pharmacy.
Erythropoietin is a generic medicine name and there are several brands available for it. Some of the brands for erythropoietin might be better known than erythropoietin itself. If the pharmacy that's willing to deliver medicines to your home doesn't have erythropoietin in stock, you can ask for one of the branded alternatives for erythropoietin.
