SAN FRANCISCO — DripDrop, a medical-grade hydration solution, is now available at Walgreens stores nationwide and on Walgreens.com, the company announced Tuesday.
"Walgreens pharmacists were big believers in DripDrop from the very beginning, when we were working out of my clinic in San Francisco and the pharmacist downstairs began recommending it to her patients," said Eduardo Dolhun, founder and chief medical officer of DripDrop. "Three-quarters of Americans suffer from some form of dehydration on a daily basis, and its impact on health and wellbeing is far-reaching. With DripDrop now available at Walgreens, consumers can treat dehydration at home, possibly avoiding an unexpected visit to the doctor or hospital for IV therapy."
Dolhun developed DripDrop after he witnessed the efficacy of oral rehydration solutions during humanitarian efforts abroad. Before DripDrop, medical grade hydration solutions either tasted terrible or required intravenous delivery. DripDrop's precise ratio of ingredients meets the international health community's standards to treat and prevent dehydration, while maintaining a taste profile similar to a sports drink. It has 25% more electrolytes than pediatric alternatives, and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
Safe to drink at home everyday and powerful enough to treat dehydration in a hospital setting, DripDrop comes in powdered packets that are mixed with water. Each box of DripDrop contains eight packets; each packet makes an 8-oz. serving. DripDrop retails for $9.99.
