Thanks for writing your query ,

As you have mentioned in your medical history that you are diabetic , hypertensive and on prozac then i suspect that you have ordered medicines related to these disorders only.
Hypertension and diabetes are potentially XXXXXXX conditions and it is not safe at all to take medicines without a concerned physician's prescription. Moreover Prozac, an antidepressant drug used to treat anxiety disorder can have various side effects when taken without supervision.

So I would suggest you to take medicines or use drugs for any problem only under medical supervision or under the guidance of a physician.

Medicines without imprint do not show manufacturing and expiry dates , ingredients and content over them. It is extremely risky to have such medicines - so please avoid it .

Hope this helps .Let me know if you need further assistance.

take care.

Regards ,
Dr. Farah Hussain.
