Marjorie I ordered from back in late february. I used a credit card that we very rarely use so I could keep tabs on it easily in case of fraudulent charges.

I got my order in 2 weeks, maybe a few days over, and all seems good.

Today I checked that credit card account and on 9/22, there are two charges I didn't make. One for $585 to HOTELDUBPALACE and one for $17 for FOREIGN TRANSACTION FEE.

So 7 months after the overseas order, our credit card was used for an overseas fraudulent charge.

I probably will order from ADC again. Just be sure that you use a credit card not a debit card, and keep close tabs on that account for a long time.

I wish our credit cards still offered that temporary number. That would have been ideal.

TxHannah Could be an issue, but I have never found it to be. I buy a mild blood pressure med there and it has never been affected by heat that I can tell, because it works just fine.

And the packages don't spend three weeks in transit. You can track the package online like any other USPS package and tell what day it gets to customs. In my experience, it takes a couple days for my orders to be filled and then when they post it, I can start tracking it. It takes about four or five days to get to customs in New York, where it seems to sit for several days. I don't know what conditions the customs areas are, but I've ordered cream based products in small round metal tins (sort of like Carmex comes in) and they never appear to have melted and spread throughout the tin. They appear to have remained solid.

But like everything else, caveat emptor. I've just never had any problems.

jihiggs spending 3 weeks in transit is concerning. who knows what kind of temperatures it will be exposed to.
10-09-2014 03:14 PM
I agree

I have ordered from ADC as well with no probs and no prescription.

No, I don't work for them and I'm not pushing their company for any financial gain.

It's an online pharmacy in India. You can look up meds by brand or generic name. They have antibiotics and other meds. What they do not sell is barbituates, amphetamines or any other controlled substances or stuff that will get you stoned.

Prices are very cheap on most things. I ordered about six months ago and you pay $25.00 flat fee shipping. The packages come through USPS and must go through Customs in New York. From the time I order until the time I get my package is between 2 and 3 weeks, but much of that time the package is in the backlog in Customs. I've never been dissatisfied with ordering from them.

When you order online, you will come to a screen that asks your physican's name, address, phone, and a prescription number. Just fill out the name, address, and phone and you can skip over the prescription number and go to the next screen.

I also have never had a problem with my c.c. or fraud.

Mods, if this information is not allowed, please remove my post. I'm not trying to promote the company in any way other than to give people an alternative buying source for preparedness items. I've ordered from them for about four years now, usually two orders a year, and never had any problems at all.

Las Vegan "As of 09/23/2014, Thomas Labs has discontinued Fish Flox Forte (100 Count) and significantly increased the price of Fish Flox Forte (30 Count). We have adjusted our product offerings to compensate where appropriate. We apologize for the unforseen price increase; but sadly, we have no control over the manufacturer's pricing.

As of 08/10/2014, Thomas Labs has significantly raised the price of Fish Fungus (Ketoconazole), and has limited new distribution to only the 30 count size. We have adjusted our offerings to the best of our ability..

We apologize for any inconvenience."

As of right this very minute, is happy to exchange your hard earned money for antibiotics. Although they are in need of a copy editor.

We are closed.
All listing were removed.

Thank You

peak_oil Get medical training before you use life-saving medication.

opticalserenity I don't see that message on Aquatic Pharmacy. It looks like all their items are still in place.

messiah The thing is, you can't really bring your fish into the vet for treatment. I was able to order about a week ago with no problems whatsoever. I don't remember the site I used off the top of my head, but I can look it up if anyone cares.

Probably a good idea. If the "voluntary" effort doesn't succeed in reducing antibiotics in food, then I presume that the voluntary vet involvement will become mandatory.

Fishmoxfishflex is great to deal with and have a wide variety of antibiotics. Quick shipping too.

Bazooka Joe The new regs are supposed to reduce the amount of antibiotics found in food animals (i.e. the fish, beef, pork that you get in the grocery). There is new required labeling. They (FDA) are trying to get voluntary compliance with only using human-use antibiotic drugs under veterinary supervision, rather than just being fed to animals willy-nilly to enhance growth. There is an FDA FAQ here.

I've never really stuck with a single vendor. I've only ordered twice and both times from different companies I googled. Unfortunately, I made this same mistake when I used to order offshore. There was a website that I found prices and reviews on called It closed down, and I never kept info on the legitimate companies I dealt with, and now have no way to find them again. That's when I first started ordering vet meds.

Heartlander From what I have been noticing they are replacing the pills with packets of powder.

So you have to buy the empty gel caplets and fill with the powder.
