Shipping Rapamycin pills from India - advice needed


I have a friend in India that bought for me the Pfizer Rapamune Sirolimus Tablets and when he tried to ship it they told him he need to have a prescription. I am trying to ship it to the Dominican Republic.

Anyone can maybe advise if it’s possible to ship it without prescription ? How do you fill out the import form ?

Thank you in advance!!

Usually shipping by speedpost EMS does not require a prescription.

But that works well in usa and canada, etc. I am not sure for your country. Sometimes i get shipments from india simply identified as personal Healthcare products.

Thank you very much!

So - can you please share what the price was in India (in Rupees) for the Pfizer Rapamune Sirolimus Tablets you purchased? I’m curious.

Hey, sorry for the slow response. So my mistake, it was not Pfizer but the Biocon and it was 500 Rupees for a stripe of 10.

Is that possible or it can be fake ? He got it from a pharmacy that he contacted from Indiamart…

Is there a way for me to check when I receive it if it’s legit ?



Thats in the right price range - 500 rupees for 10 X 1 mg Biocon tablets works out to $6 US for the 10 tablets (which is a good price - typically a little higher - $7 to $10 US, but depends on pharmacy). It should be fine.

What vendor did he go with? See our list of reliable vendors: Buy Rapamycin Online - List of Reliable Pharmacies

Ok great. I don’t know what vendor he went with, it’s actually an employee of my friend… I will try to find out.

Thanks again for the info and the help! It will be my first time start taking it so looking forward to see how it goes :slight_smile:
