    When you travel, you're at risk.

    Travelers’ diarrhea, or TD, is one of the most common travel-related illnesses, ambushing millions of travelers every year. It’s most often caused by food or drink contaminated with E.coli bacteria. Depending on where you’re going, and when, there’s up to a 70% chance you could get TD.

  • about-banner-placeholder

    Nobody goes away to sit on the toilet.

    TD isn’t always serious, but it can last for up to a week, with diarrhea that may be accompanied by other unpleasant symptoms like bloating, cramping, gas, and frequent urges to go to the toilet. Symptoms that can take a serious bite out of your precious travel plans.

  • about-banner-placeholder

    Cut TD short – not your trip.

    When TD strikes, it’s a good idea to treat the cause, and not just the symptoms.

What to Expect with AEMCOLO

What is AEMCOLO used for?

AEMCOLO is for the treatment of adults with travelers’ diarrhea caused by certain types of bacteria called E.coli, which is not complicated by a fever or blood in the stool.

Who should NOT take AEMCOLO?

AEMCOLO is not for everyone. Do not take AEMCOLO if you have a known allergy to rifamycin or any other rifamycin antibiotics or any of the components in AEMCOLO. You should not use AEMCOLO if you have a fever and/or bloody diarrhea.

What WARNINGS and IMPORTANT INFORMATION should I know about AEMCOLO?

Stop taking AEMCOLO if diarrhea gets worse or lasts more than 48 hours and notify your healthcare provider. With all antibiotics, there is a chance you could experience diarrhea caused by an overgrowth of bacteria (C. difficile). This can cause signs of disease ranging from mild diarrhea to life-threatening disease of the bowel. AEMCOLO safety and how well it works in children less than 18 years old has not been studied. AEMCOLO does not treat viral infections (for example, common cold or flu).

How should I take AEMCOLO?

The usual dose is 388 mg (2 tablets) by mouth 2 times a day (in the morning and evening) for 3 days.

  • AEMCOLO tablets should be swallowed whole with a full glass of liquid (6-8 ounces).
  • AEMCOLO must not be taken at the same time with alcohol.
  • AEMCOLO tablets must not be chewed, crushed, or broken.
  • AEMCOLO may be taken with or without food.

When taking AEMCOLO for an infection due to bacteria, it is common to feel better before the antibiotic therapy is finished. It is important to take the antibiotic exactly as directed. Do not skip doses or end before all the medication is taken. If you do, you may lower how well the drug will work and may increase the chance of the bacteria becoming resistant.

What are the most common side effects of AEMCOLO?

The most common side effects (occurrence >2%) while taking AEMCOLO are:

  • Constipation (3.5%)
  • Headache (3.3%)

These are not all the possible side effects of AEMCOLO. Tell your docotor if you have any side effects that bother you or do not go away. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects.

You can also report any side effects to Aries Pharmaceuticals Inc. at 1-888-274-3708 or by contacting the FDA at

THE ONLINE CONSULTATION PROCESS

During the registration process, you will be asked to complete an online medical assessment, outlining your medical history, any current medical conditions you have, and any medications you are currently taking. The physician assigned to your medical file will conduct either a video, telephone or digital consultation (depending on the state we are shipping to). At this time, he or she will review the medical information you have provided to determine whether or not the prescription you have ordered is appropriate for you. If approved, the prescription will be sent to our pharmacy where our Pharmacist will review again. If necessary, our pharmacist will contact you before dispensing your medication. Otherwise your order will be packaged and shipped directly to you.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR ONLINE, VIDEO AND TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS AND HOW DO I KNOW WHICH I NEED?

All states require some interaction between a physician and patient in order to prescribe a medication, however regulations governing the type of interaction or consultation differ from state to state. Depending on the state where we are shipping your medication, you will be required to have one of three types of consultations: telephone, video or digital consultation.

In all cases, the process is simple and easy to follow. Once a prescription is approved, we process payment and your medication will be safely and discreetly shipped to you.

TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS

If your state requires a telephone consultation, one of our physicians will call you within 24 hours of placing your order. If you order is placed during office hours this call will typically be within a few hours of placing your order. The physician will review the medical information you provided, verify important medical information and address any specific questions you might have. You should expect to receive a call from the phone number 480-707-4556. The physician will attempt to reach you at least 3 times before cancelling your order.

WHAT TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS DO I NEED TO HAVE A VIDEO CONSULTATION?
Use your PC, iPhone, Android, iPad, tablet or other mobile device with a camera and microphone.
DIGITAL CONSULTATIONS

Some states allow for their residents to interact with an online physician without an audio or video interaction. If you live in a state that allows for this type of interaction, you will simply be asked to answer a number of questions online and a physician will review your responses to determine whether or not a medication is appropriate for you. Our physicians generally review your medical file within a few hours and whenever necessary will follow up by e-mail or phone to determine whether or not to approve and process a prescription.

PRESCRIPTION INFORMATION
HOW ARE PRESCRIPTIONS SENT TO THE PHARMACY?
If your prescription is approved after the physician consultation, it is sent electronically to our pharmacy using HIPPA compliant encrypted software.
DO I NEED AN EXISTING PRESCRIPTION TO PLACE AN ORDER?
You do not need an existing prescription. One of our US-licensed physicians will review your answers to determine whether the prescription you’re ordering is appropriate for you. Once approved, payment will be processed and the prescription will be sent to our pharmacy and shipped directly to you.
IS THERE A PROCESSING FEE OR CONSULTATION FEE?
In many cases Aemcolo does not charge a consultation or processing fee if we fulfill your prescription. Physician consultation and prescription processing costs by our pharmacy are included in the price of your prescription. We do everything possible to keep these costs to a minimum and pass the savings on to you. In the few cases where there is a consultation fee, it will be annotated next to the cost of the prescription.

MAY I PLACE AN ORDER FOR SOMEONE ELSE?

No, the patient must complete the online diagnostic medical assessment. Our system collects a complete patient medical history in order for our Physicians to make a diagnosis and to prescribe a treatment and it needs to be obtained directly from the patient.
MAY I HAVE MY PRESCRIPTION FILLED AT ANOTHER PHARMACY?
Yes, you may choose to have your prescription filled at another pharmacy at any time; however, there will be a $120.00 processing fee. In most cases at Aemcolo, the cost of physician consultation and prescription processing by our pharmacy is built into the cost of the medicine. When a customer chooses to have their prescription filled elsewhere, we must separate those costs.

Reordering is simple!
Step 1: Login to your Aemcolo account using your Email and Password
