For years I was prescribed Donnagel-PG (no longer manufactured), a liquid that contained the same ingredients as Donnatal, I believe, plus paregoric (powdered opium).

I use Paregoric for occasional, temporary relief of cramping from IBS. Finding Paregoric is increasingly difficult. I am creating an online community interested in legally finding/importing/making Paregoric in the USA. If you are interested, please become a member or leave a comment on my blog: https://paregoricadvocates.blogspot.com/

I had been getting a prescription for this medication for the past 4 years and one prescription would last me for a year or more because i only took it when I really needed it an now that it is no longer available and I have severe stomach problems that it seems this is the only thing I've use to help my condition, now I dont know what I will do because I do not like taking a lot of other drugs for this problem and this is only one that really helped me that I could use periodically and very sparingly. Please help make it possible for people like me to get it to help because I feel when u can get a prescription filled and it lasts for a year, that is not abuse!
