Is anyone who is using these experiencing shortages? Mine have been on hold for 2 weeks and am being told it will be another week.

Supposedly, some Heparin was recalled.

Used injectable off and on for years. Don't want to go back!!!!!

who do you get yours from, by the way?

Do you know why it was recalled?

Oh and what is a Troche?
Posted by Lymetoo (Member # 743) on :
Yes, there were problems with some of the heparin coming from China. (can you imagine?)

Maria.. I used to use Midwest Compounding.

Haley.. a troche is something you let dissolve in your mouth.
Posted by bugabooboo (Member # 7383) on :
Yes, Midwest Compounders Pharmacy in KS. If you want more info pm me.

It has been great not to give injections!

The troches are dissolved under the tongue.

Main Entry: troche
Pronunciation: \ˈtrō-kē, British usually ˈtrōsh\
Function: noun
: lozenge

They have a nice taste.

Supposedly, not many pharmacies do this.
