    Mine came very quickly once the order was processed.

    BUT your doctor needs to be on the list to prescribe it, and you need to go through the educational materials on this medication before you'll be eligible for it.

    It's a very controlled substance, and there is only one source for it. Google 'Xyrem'.

    You can also google Orphan Pharmaceuticals. It is the only pharmacy in the US that is allowed to manufacture and dispense Xyrem.

    Your doctor has to prove that he/she understands how to prescribe it and has patients who need it. That gets the doctor into the database, and ONLY doctors in Orphan's database can prescribe Xyrem.

    It took me about a week or two to get mine. It comes with an instructional videotape and lots of written information - but your doctor should explain all of this to you BEFORE you get it!

    Good luck!
