1. Look for a local doctor (Teladoc) 2. Put a query in your local desi groups. If it’s a common medicine, someone may have additional stock, which you can use if they share. 3. Look for equivalent US brands ( ask a desi doctor for advice). In the Dallas/Houston area, there are specific doctors, who treat elderly patients from the sub-continent. These days, they maybe able to assist over phone as in person visits have now reduced. 4. Contact Seva to see if they can assist. They have a larger network and can definitely assist.
