Has anyone gone into any medical stores to check out their diapers? I’ve never been inside one. Is it just cheap hospital diapers or some good ones?

Curious on the diapers they have. Do they usually have some good diapers like X-Plus, NorthShore, Abena M4 or Tena?

If your talking like CVS that's ok Walmart they are terribly cheap & you should reconsider buying them online at places that include more polyester in there diapers. Most convenient stores are exactly good for diapers. Convenient. Now medical stores I'm to chicken to even walk in one and put them in my name I'd rather just use a credit card and have them delivered to my front door

It really depends what brands they carry, alot of them carry the cheap, low absorbency brand and some do carry Abena, Attends premier which are good and sometimes Molicare

Depends on area or state some usually carry what state Medicaid pays for & some do carry others. Think Abena, Molicare, & Seni are the only top of line besides attends premier & Tena Supers you used to be able to find unique wellness but seems like most places stopped carry them. The only medical supply store that had any high quality I found on vacation and they ended up becoming a abdl store as well as medical supplies which I do wonder if it's why they are still open because many supply stores have closed if they didn't have a pharmacy. But usually even than they stock what they can sell like one pharmacy I used to use think they still have a pack of Depend but switched to prevail the one I currently use has Tena Classic and few others but nothing I would buy.

I live in the northeast US and when I have been to my local medical supply store a couple of times for support hosiery, I noticed that they carried three brands of adult diapers: Fit Rite, Tranquility, and Tena.

I didn't look that closely at them to see which exact styles were available, but from a little I overheard, they work with insurance companies and in the US, different insurance companies cover different brands, styles, and quantities per month.

I wear diapers when I choose to and buy them online.

Most the ones in Oklahoma care crappy blue medline wings or attends or really cheap shit, preval if you are lucky. I have seen tranquility once before. But you are better off putting a few bucks with your money and getting at least some Abena.

In the UK medical stores they usually stock some combination of Tena, ID Slip, Molicare and Lille which are all fairly good brands at the higher absorbencies. Occasionally I have seen Abena but not commonly.

A couple years ago, you could of found some plastic backed depends fairly easily on the west coast. But now everything is super low quality. Currently the only diapers I'll buy in stores are the Goodnites XL

I dont find many medical stores with too much good stuff. They mostly carry all the run of the mill cheap medical diapers, lots of underwear and pads, mostly just Depend or Prevail. You usually have to speak with someone to have them special order the better diapers. Theres times I want to just take something off the shelf and buy it right there. Its not that easy nowadays. I have a local pharmacy selling my favorite Dry 24 7s. It was so easy to just run in and pick up a bag not deal with extra on shipping and waiting. Recently though theyve stopped stocking them and they are back to just crappy Depends, Prevail and lots of pads and underwear. Ive told them they should restock them again and said they would get around to it. Ive checked in several times and still none. So Ive stopped checking and going there. It was so convenient at least for a little while.
