    Replacement for Savage Industries Surgilube

    I found out when ordering caths and surgilube that Savage Industries Surgilube in the foil packs has been discontinued. They sent something called Dyna Lube. It's about the worst stuff I have ever used. The packets are not separated so when torn or cut apart, one of them opens up from a tear in the side rendering it useless. When opening up to use, many have thickened to the point where they slide of the catheter they're so thick. Ridiculous.

    Any suggestions for a lube in packets that is NOT made in China? Any idea when/if the Savage Industries SL in packets will be available again?

          They still show it on their website. I wonder if your distributor has discontinued carrying it in favor of this cheaper lube? We carry these at work, and have had no problems getting them.

            I called Savage Industries a few days ago and they said they were discontinued til further notice due to the packets thickening up. Will call again tomorrow. Thanks for your taking the time to check it out.

              I've used a product called EZ Lube for awhile now. They come in individual 2.7 gram packets.

                  Surgilube ( lack off) problem is getting to me also. Have been getting "Aplicare" packets with caths but can hardly get the packets open.

                    I have ordered lube packets in the past to carry in my purse for manual evacuations when I am out of the house (otherwise I just use KY jelly at home from the 4oz non-sterile tubes). Anyway, I ordered some individual lube packets to carry with me discreetly, and the last time I ordered, the brand that came was Dynalube. They absolutely sucked. The packets were hard to manipulate, but the lube itself wasn't slippery. It made the evacuation process incredibly difficult. Luckily, I found a stash I had in a different cabinet and threw out the Dynalube ones. Good luck to you in finding something that works for you.

                      I hear ya Retto. They sent me Dynalube as a replacement. hate the stuff so much I told the DME's if this was the best they could send, I'm changing to a different supplier. I went to them because of bad customer service at Byrum. They're sending me a few other samples. and am going to try a sample of the McKesson Stephen is recommending. One of my don't send thing is nothing made in China. Will also order the Surgilube tubes for home and hope their packets will come out soon again.

                            Is anyone getting the Surgilube in the 5 gram foil packs yet? My supplier is telling me they're not going to be making them anymore. TIA

                              We are still getting them at work. There are other brands. For example, Medline makes pretty much the same thing:

                              as does McKesson:

                              Here are a couple more:
