Can I import geodon capsules from America?
Q: Please tell me if I can import Geodon capsule made by Pfizer USA to India and what is the procedure to import it?
A:Geodon is a brand name in USA, the name of medicine is Ziprasidone. It is also available in Sweden under the brand name of Zeldox. There is no problem in importing the drug for personal use provided it is prescribed by a psychiatrist. Certain forms have to be filled and application made to the Drugs Controller General, India, Nirman Bhawan, New Delhi. The approval is given routinely. You will need to get a proforma invoice from vendor. Since the passenger baggage rules permit the import of reasonable quantity of medicines, it may be better to get it through a close friend and or relative or even by post.
