    Do any chain pharmacies carry hcg?

    I live in Arkansas if that helps. My doc is open to the idea of using it alongside my cyp injectios but he doesn't even know where to get it. Do they write me a script and I get online or something, or should I be able to get it here locally in fayetteville?

    they can ship it from any state as long as you have a script, I believe your doc will have to fill out a form or sign their form. I live in cali and get mine from florida.

    They charge a lot more then compounders, if you have good insurance you should be fine but I got the exact same brand from a major chain and it cost 1500 dollars as to where the compounder was 230 dollars. Price has skyrocketed here recently so that last number is good but the first one is probably over 2000.

    Thats where I was getting mine before you guys turned me onto
    Empower Pharmacy. The only problem for you is they dont ship
    to Arkansas.

    I use to pay about 60 dollars for 5000 i.u. but within the last month everywhere went up to 200-300 dollars for a 5 or 10,000 i.u. vial, this is in my state and others apparently because I shopped around. I have good insurance or so I thought because they wont cover any of my trt , if you know where it is still cheap please tell.

    Find out first if you are primary secondary hypogonadic if Primary, then HCG won't benefit as much as if you were secondary.
    Your insurance might cover it if your doctor submits a prior authorization form justifying the use of hCG. I have CIGNA, and they cover it 100% with prior authorization. But I have to use their online pharmacy, which isn't so bad because they've authorized the use of brand-name Novarel and they overnight ship it.

    i get mine from a popular drug store chain...106 bucks cash price novarel.
    the trick is asking if they will order it for you...basically noone keeps hcg in stock. I have gotten it from a supermarket too. pregnyl i used to get, but they dont make it anymore, so i get novarel.

    I buy online from BriovaRx. Brand name (Pregnyl). Total cost $160 for TWO vials of 10,000 each and syringes. Free shipping. Very happy with customer service, too. Local pharmacy charges $210 for ONE vial.

    I received two vials of Pregnyl on Wednesday! This bulletin suggests short supply (I think). http://www.ashp.org/DrugShortages/No...in.aspx?id=382
