Where can one buy a Betadine Douche?

I've been to three drug stores today, Walmart, Walgreens and Albertsons. Any ideas? I'm have surgery on 9/13.

Hi, I used to get mine at Meijers Department Store. You may have to scan the Yellow Pages of your local phone book. We used to get unusual stuff at Binson's Medical supply (located in Michigan), but I am pretty sure they have medical supply warehouses listed in your local yellow pages. Good luck. Reeni

Hi Bacall, and

We're happy you joined the Hystersisters community! There is a ton of solid information on the site, and the members have unlimited hugs to dispense at every stage of your journey to good health!

I would recommend you phone your doctor's office for information on where, in your vicinity, to purchase the product they told you to use. Certainly, you aren't the first patient who they have instructed in this regard. It might be that you need to ask for the product at the pharmacy counter, as it may not be displayed on the shelves.

Many s and Best Wishes,

That makes a new question for my Pre-Op. I'm sitting here imaging the night before... worst case scenario an enima and a douche and I get them confused because I'm a freaked out Aggie girl. This could get really ugly. Yikes!

Hi Bacall: I to have to do that lovely chore on the morning of my surgery. I found mine at a Rite Aid Pharmacy. The one I bought has to be mixed and put in a bag (ugh!). And of course it isnt included, that was a fun one to ask for at the pharmacy. Maybe you can find one that is premixed and ready to go.. Ahhh the things we must do...haha....Good luck to you my dear...

Does it have to be a Betadine douche? The Massengil medicated douche has the same solution in it that the Betadine douche has and any other medicated douche has that same iodine "medicated" soluton. It's what's in the little bottle in the package. Wal-Mart, K-Mart and any pharmacy should carry them.

Best wishes!

I am having do to them post op every other night for 2 weeks, yuck! Anyway I gat mine aat walgreens. It is the medicated douche w/ povidone-iodine. I went and checked the ingredient in betadine and it is the same. This is very confusing why can't the company just put betadine douche on the package. Also the local walmarts here said they quit carrying recently. GL Angela
