Patient Concerns

arrow
Patient has been taking Prolinate injection for several years and it suits her well - no side effects. We have prescription for Prolinate but it is not available. The website shows Monazine is a substitute injection with same composition. Can you prescribe it for Ms PATIENT based on the original prescription? My order is getting cancelled since Monazine is not on the original prescription. Thanks, anjana
