Home Delivery for Fluoxetine in Your City
Medicine India is just a publishing medium for medicine related information and does not provide services or sales of medicines including fluoxetine.
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 fluoxetine and other medicines and health products. Home delivery services for fluoxetine 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 fluoxetine 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 fluoxetine before they complete the sale. You can get this information while placing the order for fluoxetine with the pharmacy.
Fluoxetine is a generic medicine name and there are several brands available for it. Some of the brands for fluoxetine might be better known than fluoxetine itself. If the pharmacy that's willing to deliver medicines to your home doesn't have fluoxetine in stock, you can ask for one of the branded alternatives for fluoxetine.
