    Has anyone had any luck finding them at a pharmacy? I went into a big Boots and the guy was trying to be helpful, but he found out that Boots don't carry them because it's their policy not to carry these types of medical accessories that you don't need a prescription for (meanwhile, loads of herbal "remedies" line the shelves). Anyway he suggested I try a small independent pharmacy, and I know you can get them from amazon, but I was wondering if anyone had any luck getting them from a pharmacy?
    Update I asked a little pharmacy tucked away next to my work, nice Irish bloke, after discussing it he said he could order some in, "about six quid", so even if it's 7 quid, it's still convenient.
    Update 2 Yep he sold them to me for six quid. I'm finding them interesting to tweak my diet, but even after eating at a nice restaurant for Valentine's day, which involved some bread, polenta, potato, and sugary pudding, I still registered ketones the next day, so I think the "if in doubt eat more butter" approach, while using MFP, is probably just fine. Still, I'll probably use them for another week or so out of curiosity.

    I don't think you're going to find them -- I never have -- and if you do, they likely won't be any cheaper than they are on Amazon (£6.54). If anyone can prove me wrong though, I'd love to know! My 'stix are about to expire and I need to get some more soon. :)
