I've used Paregoric for 15 years and can't find it. Is there anywhere in the U.S. or other countries where this can be purchased?

Funny how so many people are dying or experiencing debilitating effects of the FDA's "approved" medications, such as blood thinners, nsaids, etc. The only people who died from taking paregoric? Drug abusers. Look at the IBS drugs out today. Their side effects are worse than the pain from those with irritable bowel symptoms. So I say the FDA and DEA are full of s***. Big Pharma didn't like that such a simple, low-cost drug was the perfect solution to people's pain. It makes me sick. The FDA and DEA are a joke.

Get your doctor to write a prescription for it. He or she will probably have to spell it out as last year it wasn't on the list of drugs that doctors can pull up. CVS Drugstore in Palatka, Florida filled it for me. CVS had Paregoric in their warehouse. Get your druggist to check and see if their warehouse has it, then get your doctor to write a prescription.

Am also recovering in AA 28 years. I have only 10% use of my pancreas and have gotten relief from a mixture of lomotil and paregoric. Now I can't find the paregoric anywhere. Could you share any info on obtaining it? I would really appreciate it.
Thx, Diane

I understand 100%, I found the same kind of relief with Paregoric, from the same kinds of symptoms. I don't understand how writing a prescription would help, though, at least not where I live, because my dr. did give me a handwritten prescription and I was told by several pharmacies (I live in Maryland) that it is not made anymore. So, I wonder if CVS in my state would have it....... Have you found anything else that works for you the same? Because I have not. Thank you.

Does anyone know if Paregoric is available and, if so, where to get it? It was the only thing that helped my IBS issues. Thank you.

I remember as a child and young woman being able to have one small teaspoon of paregoric for stomach viruses and diarrhea. I still remember how the bottle looked and that bitter taste. Why? Because such a bitter taste could give relief. For so many years I've wished that it was available. I believe I only took it maybe 5 or so times a year. But there is nothing that works like paregoric. I am a recovering alcoholic and have been sober for almost 20 years. I've had to stay away from many drugs that could be addictive. But I believe that paregoric can be used episodically without necessarily leading to an addiction risk. I don't say this lightly. It's important to have a drug like this for some of the awful symptoms some of you have described. In the same light, I had taken marijuana as a recreational drug in my youth. Once I became a mother I stopped. Some years later I had foot surgery and when I got home I was incredibly nauseous with unbearable pain. My husband got one joint in which I partook and the nausea stopped and the pain lessened. I only used it that night. The point is, yes - there are risks of addiction with many drugs. But it is not right that so many will suffer because they cannot get the one thing that can help them. I'm no where as sick as some of the very unfortunate people who have contributed to this conversation, but I got to this site obviously because I am so sick right now. I feel as though we are up against money and politics which dictate to doctors and pharmacists. I wish we had a group for those of us that are sick that had some of the organization. clout and influence needed to help us. My heart goes out to all of you- we need an underground railroad or something.

Please see my response on this. It is again being manufactured in the United States. I know that CVS drugstores have it in their warehouse.

Does anyone know where tincture of opium can be purchased? I have prescription from my Gastro doc, a "team" of docs, actually, that said for some, this is the only rx that works, if you can find it, they said. (My intestines are pretty messed up, IBS, since I was 13, then to treat uterine cancer, I received internal radiation, which killed the cancer, yea! but burned & scarred up nearby tissues, esp intestines. then finally about half of intestines had to be removed. Add severe fibromyalgia. I was able to function somewhat, but now I'm layed up in bed, life passing me by because the Fed laws changed! I must take 5 RXs to do what paregoric does! Great for liver & kidneys, right? How does this make sense? I welcome suggestions, thank you in advance.

I got the prescription for Paregoric from my doctor. He couldn't use the computer to print it as it was not listed on a prescription list. He had to type it in himself. CVS had it in their warehouse, and ordered it when I gave them the prescription. That was last year. Since then, on two occasions it has kept me out of the ER when I had a couple of bad attacks of cramps. One 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon eases the colon spasm and allows me to have the bowel movements without having to suffer for hours prior to being able to go. I have had these bad attacks of IBS(Irritable Bowel Syndrome) for most of my life. I've had many colonoscopies and there is nothing wrong inside my colon.

Your physician is the person to write you a prescription. Not all doctors believe in using paregoric because it is an opiate. You should talk to your own doctor and ask about the possibility of her/him writing a prescription for you. Take it to the pharmacy and if they do not have it, they should be able to special order it.

Please tell me where and how to obtain paregoric with a doctor's prescription. If it is being made again, where can it be obtained?

Don't know about diarrhea but did notice remarks about pain and cramps. My mother-in-law told me about paregoric in the early 60s when I had babies. Didn't know it was opium which will kill any kind of pain. She gave it to me for baby's colic and to make him burp. It sure did work. When I had another baby in 1969 I was looking for it as I had previously been able to buy it in any drugstore over the counter but it was not available anywhere. That is also when I found out the ingredients and I was somewhat shocked that I had fed my babies opium which I knew was addictive. At least none of my children became addicted and none of them was into drugs later on although they all smoked cigarettes and two of them are addicted to those.

Responding to "marijuana" mention; . . .Perhaps you were referring just to the comment regarding pain. The original question and issue here is how to stop diarrhea. Paregoric does help with pain as well, but it's primary purpose is to stop diarrhea. I'm sure the Paregoric was very helpful when rubbed on a child's gums too. Paregoric has some wonderful healing qualities that have been hard to find a replacement for. It is legally made again, and a person needs a doctor's prescription to get it.

Maybe people could try Marijuana instead. In many states it is now legal for medicinal purposes and it is not addictive as anything with opium in it. You could ask for the strain that has the least amount of whatever makes people high in it as that seems to be what has the most medicinal compounds. Good luck.
