For those of you who take Primadophilus Reuteri, where do you get it from? (I ordered mine from eVitamins 2 weeks ago and it still hasn't come. I called today and they said it could be another 7-10 days before they even ship it. So I canceled my order. And none of the stores/pharmacies around me have it.)

When I was taking it, I ordered mine of the Vitamin Shoppe website. The prices weren't bad and it came very quick.

I use iHerb for my Pro-Bio. I saw they had Prim...Reut... and it's cheaper than my Pro-Bio. Since it does need to be shipped on ice, they recommend ordering and paying attention to delivery times so it won't be sitting in a mailbox or something for a few days.

Osteopenia diagnosed Feb 2006
Status:  Flaring
Asacol 12 per day,  Azathioprine 100mg, Aciphex, Forvia, and Pro-Bio

I'm in Canada and get it at a health food store...they keep it in the fridge which is where it has to be even before opening, so those getting it shipped, make sure they're sending it "cold-packed" for you.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)
