I believe you can find a zinc/copper combo. You only need I think 2mg a day, so not so much.

First, yes it is in stores although not as common as zinc so you're better off going to a larger health food store or supplement store to find it.

Second, true the daily recommended intake is 2mg but if you're taking more zinc you need more copper. The ideal ratio is around 10:1; if you were to take 20 mg of zinc you'd take 2 mg of copper, anymore zinc and you'd have to up the copper as well to maintain that ratio.
