The cheapest option for Immodium that I have found is the Ship & Save subscription for the 200 ct bottles through CVS. I'm paying on average $15/bottle, so still quadruple the price of what I paid for it from CVS, but since Wal-Mart stopped carrying the 200ct bottles, this is the most economical option I've found. It is also nice that it is shipped right to my door on a pre-set frequency to make sure I don't run out.
Hey BR, it might be a good idea to buy extra in advance and stock up. It stands to reason that some vendors have ignored the DEA only temporarily until existing surplus stock runs out. That kind of pressure is serious business IMO. Adding to the issue is huge profit increases to CVS or anyone who goes with the DEA recommendation. It makes sense that they'll eventually clamp down like Costco did.
I'm just being careful. I ordered that kilo from China so will post more about it after it shows up.
