Users will be able to purchase drugs through Amazon according to their prescriptions and have them delivered to their homes with ease.

Ordering prescribed medication is as easy as shopping for groceries on Amazon.

As a reminder, Amazon has made headlines to showcase its online pharmacy in India since its launch in the United States. However, it wasn’t until now that he finally made Amazon Pharmacy official. In the United States, it allows users to download their insurance details, have the prescriber send the prescription directly to Amazon, and have access to pharmacists for any questions. We can expect the Indian version to get these features soon.
While there is no word on the delivery time, the website suggests that it differs for different drugs. For example, while Nestlé Nan Lo Lac infant formula powder can be delivered in one day, Omnigel gel can take up to 6 days to be delivered.
