Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)
What type of medicines does QuikPills deliver?
We deliver all types of medicines including Allopathic, Ayurvedic and Homeopathic medicines.
How can I tell that the online medications I ordered are legitimate?
All of our medications come with the original instructions and packaging that contains the lot number and expiry that can be cross checked with the manufacturer. Our generics also come in original packaging; however most of the generics from India come only as blister packs with the manufacturer information printed directly on the reverse of the blister. We ensure that our partners procure the medicines directly from certified pharmacists and regulated manufacturers. Some of our partners are reputed manufacturers themselves. Rest assured, we ensure that you get only quality and authentic medicines that are well within the expiry date. You will never have to worry about the origin of the medications you order through QuikPills.
Can I decide to have only brand-name products?
Yes. It’s your choice. However you can maximize your savings by ordering generic products. We recommend that you buy medicines that are written on your prescription.
Can I just buy another medicine listed as substitute?
Yes, you can buy other substitutes if your prescription lists the salt names instead of a brand name. You can always encourage your doctor to write salt names on your prescription instead of a specific brand name.
What is a generic substitute?
Substitutes depend on the composition and strength of constituent salts. Substitute are medicines made by other manufacturers using the same salt composition as your prescribed medicine .These medicines are often more affordable. Please note that substitutes change with the salt strength, even for same medicine name.
What if I can’t find the product I am searching for on your site?
There are several reasons why the medicine you are searching for may not appear in the QuikPills listings – common reasons are: the product name in our listing may be different to the name you're using or the spelling of the product name may be different. If you can't find what you need then please contact us by phone or email. We will confirm if our suppliers have the medication you need and provide the price. You can mail us on Care@quikpills.com or call us at our Customer Care number 9266 400 200. Make sure that you mention 'Order' in the subject line for faster reverts.
The medication that I ordered online looks different than what I am used to, why is this?
This can and will happen when you order medication online from different countries, especially when you are ordering generics which can be manufactured by several different manufacturers. Because a generic medication can be manufactured by any company, each company will use the exact same active ingredients but the process of creating them may differ and thus the shape, colour and size of the tablets or capsules may differ slightly to distinguish them from their competitors. This in no way affects the efficacy of the medications. All the medications listed / supplied by us are chosen after a rigorous auditing process.
Why do the prices of medicine vary?
Medicine prices vary by geographical location and often change on a day to day basis due to regulations and distributors. The prices listed on our site act as guidance and help you understand if you are paying the right price for your medicines.
