Can I purchase DEKAs vitamins at my pharmacy?
Patients may need to ask their pharmacist to order DEKAs vitamins specifically for them, as they may be considered a specialty items and not in stock. If they let their pharmacist know the frequency they will be purchasing DEKAs vitamins, the pharmacy may stock DEKAs vitamins for them. Note that they are a pharmacy item and will not be on the shelves with general vitamins, and also that not all distribution centers have actually stocked product yet, so the pharmacy may need to request that their distribution center stock DEKAs. If needed, please call us to assist the pharmacy in ordering DEKAs products.
