From June 10th, Tramadol will not be delivered on a next-day/24hr basis. It will take up to 5 days to deliver. This follows changes in Pharmacy Regulations made by the UK Government. This and other changes we need to make following this new legislation are discussed in this blog Controlled Drugs – Legislative Changes.
We regret that Tramadol Drops are no longer available.
