why was orphenedrine compound forte discontinued
I am trying to determine why orphenedrine compound forte was discontinued and if there is a replacement. ## You can still get Norgesic which is orphenedrine citrate, the same main ingredient as in Norgesic Forte. I took Norgesic Forte for my migraines and it worked wonderfully. When it was taken off the market, my dr switch me to regular Norgesic and had me take 2 excedrin along with it.
