DEKAs Plus & Essential Vitamins In Pharmacies
Patients may need to ask their pharmacist to order DEKAs Plus & Essential Vitamins specifically for them, as they may be considered a specialty item 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 pharmacist may need to request that their distribution center stock DEKAs vitamins. If needed, please call us to assist the pharmacy in ordering DEKAs products.
