    I have no experience of these 2 pharmacies as I'm in the UK. I think the pricing depends on how much LDN the pharmacy is turning over. The more they turn over the lower the cost.

    For example in the UK I was quoted as a cost to our health service 300 per month from a pharmacist who I think would only compound it for me. But getting it from Dickson's Pharmacy where they dispense all over the world the cost is 15 per month for the liquid. So a huge difference in price dependant on their turnover of LDN.

    It could also be a difference in LDN formulation. The liquid is cheaper than the capsules - capsules at Dickson's are 27 per month. They may also compound at different doses and therefore their prices could be different.

    So worth contacting them and asking their pricing structure for the liquid & capsules.

    Dr. Bihari wanted me to get it from Irmat as opposed to a cheaper place. (I'm not currently on it. When I was my nk function went from 10 to 21).

    Hi
    I had a look at http://www.lowdosenaltrexone.org/index.htm#How_can_I_obtain_LDN
    and this is what they say about the 2 pharmacies:

    .

    So the difference appears to be that Gideon although cheaper for LDN charge shipping and don't accept insurance. Also Irmat do montlhy quality control although it doesn't state what that entails.
