Go to their website and click on "Find a Pharmacy." When I was taking it I had to order it off the internet because no stores in my area stocked it.

I order mine off the internet. If I buy it in a store, its runs me around $55 for a bottle of 60 capsules. Ordering off the internet, I get two bottles for around $90, and shipping is included in the price.

I walked into my local CVS and had the pharmacy order it for me. It was $85 total for the 30 packets of unflavored. They will have it a day later and will keep it in the fridge. Its convient and fast, i like it.

Happyliving -

If you look at Judy's post above, she has provided a link to the VSL#3 website. You can also do a google search.  The webite can direct you to a store to buy from, or you can order directly from them.  Near me, there is one Walmart, one Target Supercenter, and two grocery stores that carry VSL#3.  Only the Target carries the caps, but I'm sure any place could special order as Mike noted above.

I'm taking 6 pills a day. For me, probiotics work best if taken 2 or 3 times a day, so I've been taking 2 caps, 3 times a day. I'm trying to get to only taking pills twice a day, so I'm experimenting with taking 3 pills, twice a day.

Good luck.
