E-commerce company Amazon has launched its own Amazon Pharmacy. Amazon Pharmacy is currently launched in the US. General prescription drugs will be made available under this service, the company said. It includes creams and tablets. The company will also deliver drugs such as insulin through the platform, which need to be kept at a lower temperature.




Buyers must set up a profile on Amazon's website and doctors must send a prescription to a Seattle-based e-commerce company. The company's move is expected to hit drug retailers Walgreens, CVS and Walmart in the United States. Amazon plans to launch a worldwide online pharmacy soon.
