Alternative Medications for Banned Drugs

Hello there! I’m Lee, senior pharmacist at pharmacist

Lately, I’ve been receiving an increasing number of questions from our customers on the availability of certain drugs. Little did they know they were banned for controlled substances! So, I decided to write this post to shed some light on safe generic and alternative medications available with us that can be used in the place of banned prescription drugs.

But before that, do you know…

What are controlled substances and why they are banned?

Certain drugs contain ingredients that are subject to special controls as there is a potential in them for abuse and can cause internal and external damage. These drugs are therefore not permitted for sale and are restricted / banned according to the regulation of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) of the United States.

Wait, there’s good news too! offers alternative generic medications that are quality checked and tested safe for consumption. For your convenience, I’ve charted a detailed table with the Brand Name & Generic Name and matched it to the Alternative drugs available with us. Hope you benefit from this list.

Cheers, Lee.
