Customer Question

My husband and I just arrived in Edinburgh yesterday and my husband’s luggage was lost with his blood thinner medication, Eliquis in it! He was diagnosed with blood clots in his lungs a month ago after having arthroscopic knee surgery! Our Dr. in the US cannot do a prescription internationally. We will be in Scotland till June 26! We need help now!
JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: He just takes the Eliquis (blood thinner 2x a day)!
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: No nothing else. Just scared we can’t get this taken care of!
