How to get LDN prescribed in Tennessee?

I plan to ask my doctor about LDN Thursday (or should I say tell my doctor about LDN...) but I cant find any evidence of an LDN compounding pharmacy in my area. So even if my doc will prescribe it (which I doubt), where the heck would I get it?

You can get it from Skips Pharmacy in Boca Raton, Fl. I ordered it from Williams Apothecary in Lancaster , PA. They did the compounding for the LDN phase 2 trial in PA. Very nice to deal with and fast service.good luck!

You can also do a pretty much any compounding pharmacy. I gave our local compounding pharmacy explicit instructions on compounding it as well as Skip's pharmacy phone number.

ok so I can have a prescription filled by an out of state pharmacy and mailed to me? huh interesting, not sure about local compounding pharmacy but I guess maybe my doc would know...I have a feeling he is going to shoot down the whole LDN thing tho based on our prior meetings he already thinks im nuts for being on a liquid diet and taking lots of probiotics (according to him both are a waste of time and money and the only thing I need to avoid are overly fatty foods and dairy)

Absolutely, this is done quite often and there are many mail-order pharmacies. Skip is inexpensive and knows what he is doing

thanks again, asked my doc for it, he prescribed it (reluctantly), and I filled it at a local compounding pharmacy no problem!
