There are also delays coming out of India. As of December 8. 2021 the government of India ceased all shipments through their traditional shipment avenues due to the restricted connections of transportation into the USA. Since the 8th we have had to switch to Singapore Post to get overseas medications delivered within the United States. The service is similar to EMS still coming through New York Customs. However with traveling a different route we are seeing an increase of 2-3 additional business days. Still averaging 4-6 weeks delivery time.

As always “There is no such thing as ordering too early!

Be sure to order early enough to ensure that you have enough medication on hand to prevent running out of meds during these delays.
