Doctor :   The medicine that is required for your condition is prescription based. These medicine may have many adverse effects and can be prescribed by a doctor only after physical examination. We cannot prescribe it online for your safety and other drug interactions. Hence we recommend that you meet a doctor in your area and he will prescribe it for you. If you wish, we can fix up your appointment with a doctor in your area.
