I too have lots of clear odorless discharge with boric acid.

I bought my boric acid at a health food store for those of you who cannot find it elsewhere.

I had to ask for the boric acid at the pharmacy and they did not have it in but they ordered it and it was in before noon the next day. I have not had any burning or other side effects just a little clear discharge.

How long do you think 12 oz would last if you use it regularly?

d double u -

I got mine by prescription, but I looked up the brand "Humco" online and I found

www.humco.com

Look under products, then "household and farm" and then go to secure order and do it there (order "boric acid powder")

Do not be intimidated by "insecticide for roaches and for fireproofing fabrics." And powder, not granular.

Looks pretty straightforward, BUT you might have to wait for it to ship. I'm not sure where to buy it at a store over the counter. I would just ask a pharmacist at your local grocery or drug store about that.

Good luck!

Jewels: Did you ask anyone who worked there, or someone in the pharmacy? Boric acid is really common to have, especially in with the household items like hydrogen peroxide and first aid. It has a variety of uses and I would find it weird if you couldn't locate it somewhere in your town.

Yay, klee! My boric acid isn't 100% because I heard that was too harsh. It's still working fine for me. I think as long as your body will tolerate it, it's fine to use the 100%. I too only had to use it for about 2 or 3 nights before my symptoms were gone. I'm so glad everyone on here is having such success. :-)

Wanted to share! The boric acid is working like aces for me. Primary reason to love it, you don't get a yeast infection afterwards (actually cures YI too) and it works after a day and I haven't used it for more than three consecutive days total. I use the 100% boric acid. It's perfectly fine. Boric acid is boric acid regardless of the touted use. If you look online, there are examples of making your own capsules and they say to use 600 mg of boric acid in the capsules. You would be getting less than 600 mg if it's cut w/something.

I don't have any side effects except the liquidy discharge. I think it's a good idea to not use it too regularly since you want your body to do it's own thing. But this is supposed to re-acidify your kitty and seems to be doing a super job on mine.

It hasn't burned at all on me. The only discomfort about using boric acid is that you get a liquidy discharge while using it but it's clear and has no odor. I think it seems really easy, cheap, and I haven't had any irritation or side effects. In my opinion, it is as effective as any antibiotic and it's better since it doesn't give me a yeast infection afterwards.

Although it took me about 3 walmarts to find it, I got my boric acid in the same aisle as hydrogen peroxide. It is not the roach killer.

I got my gel capsules at the local health food store. I had to buy 250 that was the smallest quantity they had. It was only 5.50 so not to bad compared to all the antibiotics.
I love the boric acid and hope to never have to use the antibiotics again.

Hi Guys its Sha. I had a little trouble with my account yesterday and had to change my screen name.

Boric Acid is the best thing that's happen for me. It works like a charm and its super cheap. I have been using 2 capules every other day. I also moisten the outside of the capsules with a bit of tee tree oil. Just my personal preference.

Pepper and Sassy, will be in touch with my GOL client tomorrow. I'm sure I can get you both some Primal Defense.

I got my gel capsules from a local health food store. I got 50 vegetarian capsules for $2.50. You can get the capsules and the powder over the counter.

I got them from my ob/gyn as part of the prescription along with the boric acid powder. I'm not sure if you can get them over the counter. It's worth a try just asking a pharmacist for them.
