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?

Hi Mare and all...

Mare? Gosh, there MUST be a Dr SOMEWHERE near you that will prescribe it? What if you called Drs offices and, before setting up a first consult appointment, ask if he will prescribe Paregoric?

I am able to obtain mine from private family Dr...

Wishing you the best,

Elizabeth and everyone: I am from the US. My dr. never heard of it and he's in his 50s. Go figure. He asked me what other names paregoric goes by and I didn't know. I read on this site that it is tincture of opium, or something like that. A dr. prescribed it for me in the 1970s for diarrehea but I haven't gotten it since. The anti diarreheals (wrong sp.) don't work well and a little paregoric is all you need. Bottom line. I can't find it in the US. My Daddy used to get it otc at a drugstore and just sign for it, but that was probably in the 30s or 40s in the US. I would like to get it from another country if possible as I just don't know how to get it in the US.

The issue of a doctor not prescribing is not terribly surprising. You have to realize that most of the young doctors practicing today were taught that there were alternatives to the basic problem in solving the diarrhea dilemma.

Unfortunately, many of the things do work for certain reasons for it, and not others. For those of us who grew up using it, and using it properly, we do know that Paregoric works for more of these causes.

Linda; do I know you from LHS in the valley of Cache?

Linda, Mare and all...I am confused....are you from the US?
You are asking how to purchase paregoric in countries than US when it IS once again available it that you are unable to find a Dr that will give you a prescription for it? Thanks! Betty/Elizabeth (and good luck...I think it's HORRID if you are unable to find a Dr to prescribe it for you here!)

Could I write the Jamaica pharmacy you visited and ask them to mail paragoric to me? Do you happen to remember the name of the pharmacy you went into. I am not planning to visit Jamaica, Belize or Barbados anytime in the near future. I would like to call or write or email a pharmacy in one of those countries. Thank you.

My understanding if that Tincture of Opium and Paragoric is the SAME thing.

The pharmaceutical company's CEOs are so greedy, that when they only line their pockets with $ from the pills that have a main ingredient made in nature( others companies can also make it), they had to invent man-purses so they could fit all the $ from the pills they reproduced synthetically. Getting all the profits and the patent allowing only them to sell that particular mix.

I can't tell you the specific name or phone number of a pharmacy that sells paregoric overseas. What I do know is this. When I was in Jamaica, I walked into a pharmacy and saw the bottles on the shelves. I asked for some of them and they gave it to me. It was very inexpensive, and very easy to get. I brought it back in my regular luggage and customs seemed not to have a problem with it. The same thing happened in Barbados and Belize. A doctor in any of these places will prescribe this medication for you if that makes you more comfortable.

Hi Mare and all...

Well, I do know that I offered (see my posts under Betty/Elizabeth) to call Brazil (or wherever) to get paregoric for those unable to get it (which must be rare, as it IS available now in U.S...but then, if one doesn't have insurance and has to shop for a Dr that will prescribe it and then a pharmacy that carrys could be "frustrating")...I wrote my heart out offering to purchase paregoric for those truly unable to get it for reasons I've started in old posts...

But then I awoke the next day and realized I put my heart before my head (not unusual for me :<) and apologized...

So perhaps whoever wrote "your" name meant me?

But I did look at the posts and I don't think she meant to use names, just the Subject of post?

Anyway, it's back in the good old USA...and I pray you're able to get it here as, when I'm really using objective side of me, I wonder if paregoric purchased otc or other countries are "the real thing"???

Have a great day, and again, I do hope you are able to obtain paregoric, for "once again" I say, with all my heart and soul, for those of us who truly need it, it IS licquid gold!

Betty (Elizabeth)

Someone definitely misundertsood me. I never offered to get anything for anyone online. You have me confused with another person who posted a message. Get your facts straight before you go accusing someone falsely. I don't even know a site to go on. I merely asked about getting paragoric from Brazil or another country that another "poster" mentioned--Belize & Jamaica, I think. I would get it for myself but no one else, believe me.

Hi Adam, Laura and all...

Laura, you are still unable to get a RX for paregoric from your Docs?

That's terrible (but, I've voiced my opinion on that before) there a large city you can go to...a University Hospital setting or something?

Thanks and gosh, I hope you have found relief!

Good luck getting Michelle Obama to help you. She's too busy jet-setting around the world on the taxpayer's dime. And she's a cafeteria Nazi on top of that! This woman doesn't even want candy bars, sodas, or sugary fruit juices in vending machines! I highly doubt she's gonna help ANYONE procure paregoric.... Sorry, Laura. I do wish u the best of luck w/ ur search for relief. But I wouldn't waste my time or hold my breath waiting for Michelle to help out.

Kathyrn (and all)...Good Morning! Thanks Kathyrn for your reply...gosh, I never thought about how my post re ordering
from Brazil (or wherever) "sounded" until I posted second one next day (after reading what I originally wrote, objectively)...Anyway, on with life, yes? And, as I've keyed before, it is once again available in U.S. and that's what we've all wanted!And, thanks to this Site, I learned, while it was unavailable, that I could get it with my Drs RX through a compounding pharmacy! Regards, Betty

Betty; I do believe that the FDA has authorized three specific pharmaceutical companies to produce Paregoric. Doctors get afraid to write scripts for it, because the DEA is looking over their shoulders right along with the local Pharmacies that may tell you that they cannot get it in.

Several years ago, there was a lot of ordering of many types of medications through the email. The the government DID get very involved. Try as I might, I could not even get my computer to go to some of the sights. Plus, I had had an order coming from Spain. They caught it coming through customs, and sent it back. They then called me and asked if I was expecting anymore.

If the DEA gets ahold of your shipment of anything narcotic based you will lose it, and the money you already paid. Plus, you could be in trouble with the DEA (that I am not sure of).

I am concerned that I see people like "Mare" online, asking little questions, and offering to get things online for people... I hope I am wrong, but I worry that people like her (and there have been others in the past), are just trying to get a business of their own going. ??Why would Mare be better equipped to go online to order these thing?? And it would not be out of the goodness of her heart. At least that is what I am seeing here. People need to be careful. Really.

It is now the day following my (above) post of yesterday...
I'm the "author" of it, and not sure I understand what I was trying to say???
I got carried away, I guess...I do know that FDA has NOT actually approved Paragoric sales in USA...and, (gulp) that could get me in "trouble" ordering from Brazil, etc, having cases shipped to my address, and then shipping bottles to those unable to obtain RX from Drs in their areas...I apologize to the FDA (...I"m really not a "bad guy" :>), but...I do feel strongly about this prescription and how it works for those of us with IBS, etc...but then, it is once again available to MOST of us in USA...and the FDA, I'm sure, has more important illegal/dangerous "drugs" to go after...Oh, I'm babbling again...just wanted to say, my heart was sincere in offering to order bottles for those of us unable to obtain it here...woke up with my cup of coffee and realized "geez, I could get a knock on my door today"....but, in defense of that, I truly believe it should be available, with FDA approval and Drs RX...and, bottom line, why are we able to obtain much stronger prescriptions with their approval?
Am I replying on right spot? There's an area at bottom where we can reply, or one right after the previous posters post...are both rec by all of us?
Thanks for reading, and understanding.

Hi...this is Betty (registered name Elizabeth)...I am confused!...OK...I've posted numerous times (as have many of us) and...the latest on Paregoric is that it is once again available through prescription, yes?
But, I'm reading posts on people still having to go to Brazil, etc, to purchase it...
Does this mean, those that are requesting name of pharmacies in places such as Brazil (etc) are totally unable to obtain rx from Drs in US?
We all know it's available with RX (once again) in U.S...
so, if "problem" is living in area where Drs will NOT prescribe it (and we all agree this is JUST STUPID), is the points being, either someone give us name/phone no of "out of USA" where we can obtain it over phone, of us obtain names of us unable to get LEGAL prescription in USA, and if we could...somehow...guarantee payment (honest cost, say what it would cost in USA with cost for one of us to order it (Brazil), shipping costs, and a SMALL fee for doing this what we're saying?
I honestly, truly, swear to God, swear by paregoric...for those of you who have read my posts, I've gotten it for YEARS, otc, and then through Drs (California) due to IBS PLUS numberous other reason..."overactive bowel"...(nerves...) enough to keep me housebound without it...(I've shared many a story...very personal ones...embarrassing....but TRUTHFUL...on "sudden diarrhea episodes"...I was on it, and then, it went off the market, (blah blah) it's back, so, with insurance (thank God) and my Drs, I am able to order it from pharmacies...
So...guess what I'm saying (again) is....if we could share telephone no of out of country pharmacies that would ship it to us, or one person ordering it for those of us who need it, I swear to God, I have no "guilty conscious" in being one to help those who are unable to get it (too expensive here, no Dr., etc...) I TRULY THINK THIS IS A WONDER DRUG...and with all the talk about stronger pain medications, paregoric even helps with...well, mediium closing (for this time) my problem is nervous bowel, (just a nervous person, really) and IBS...stomach surgeries, etc...I will do anything I can do to help those in need...I don't know how you could reach me, perhaps by calling this Site? My email address is {edited for privacy}
I am NOT a drug pusher...just a person who has been able to "live a life" with, what I consider to be, a wonder drug, and SHOULD STILL BE OVER THE COUNTER (for adults, though) I making sense? Regards
