Where to Get Droppers
By Pam Marshalla
Q: Could you advise where to find the best droppers for the dropper technique that you use for habituating the swallow and reducing drooling?
I buy my droppers (pipettes) at Sally Beauty Supply, which I believe is a national chain, but you can really get them anywhere. The droppers look like the ones in the image to the right, but any plastic dropper would probably work.
Your local pharmacy may carry them, or you can buy multi-packs on Amazon.com 🙂

How are the droppers used? Did I miss information that explained the dropper therapy?
Hi Georgia – I should have mentioned this in the post — the droppers are for a technique to help eliminate drooling that I talk about often. Please see this link 🙂
