I posted earlier about this topic 'cuz there's apparently a shortage of ADEKS due to people who've had gastic bypass surgery. Axcam's site lists them as being backordered -- at least the drops. They still have the tablets, which I suppose you can crush. I've been able to obtain them thru the CF FOundation's Pharmacy site -- with a prescription. Also, Solvay makes a vitamin drop specifically for CF Kids, which is also sold only through the CF Foundation's website. Oh, and the weird thing about the ADEKS I get from the CF Pharmacy -- they've obviously obtained a source in Canada, 'cuz the bottles are marked with a Mapleleaf.

Otherwise, when we couldn't get ADEKS we were using poly-vi-sol vitamin drops without iron and adding a drop of Vitamin E & A to ONE of my baby's bottle each day. Just poke a hole in one of the capsules. This was as per my son's doctor's suggestion. So I'd check with your doctor before doing this. Too much Vitamin A can be toxic for people
