Slouchy, I know. It’s pretty crazy. I used to get the Kirkland brand loperamide for about 6.00 for 400. I also would buy them for my sister, no problem. Now you get 36 for 1.29 but you’re restricted in how often you can buy them. So, I switched to Lomotil, and I also buy the Immodium as well. Have you checked to see how much Immodium is with a prescription at Costco? I haven’t myself, but may in the future.
