Home Delivery for Hydralazine in Your City
Medicine India is just a publishing medium for medicine related information and does not provide services or sales of medicines including hydralazine.
However, we do publish a comprehensive directory of Pharmacies, Chemists and Druggists in cities all over India. You can use this directory to find the medicine stores in your city (or area) that provide home delivery services for hydralazine and other medicines and health products. Home delivery services for hydralazine may be free or they may cost you depending on the pharmacy and the minimum order requirements. It would be best to get this clarified while placing the order.
Please be aware that you should take hydralazine 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 hydralazine before they complete the sale. You can get this information while placing the order for hydralazine with the pharmacy.
Hydralazine is a generic medicine name and there are several brands available for it. Some of the brands for hydralazine might be better known than hydralazine itself. If the pharmacy that's willing to deliver medicines to your home doesn't have hydralazine in stock, you can ask for one of the branded alternatives for hydralazine.
