Hi charie,

Belladonna alkaloids and phenobarbital tablets contain the following ingredients:

Atropine Sulfate, USP..........................0.0194 mg
Hyoscyamine Sulfate, USP.................0.1037 mg
Scopolamine Hydrobromide, USP.....0.0065 mg
Phenobarbital, USP..................................16.2 mg

Inactive ingredients: Anhydrous Lactose, Calcium Stearate, Colloidal Silicon Dioxide, Corn Starch, and Microcrystalline Cellulose.

I'm not certain if this varies by manufacturer, but I have not seen any details regarding different dosages.

The dosage and administration guidelines recommend the following:

"The dosage of belladonna alkaloids with phenobarbital tablets should be adjusted to the needs of the individual patient to assure symptomatic control with a minimum of adverse effects.

Adults: One or two tablets three or four times a day according to condition and severity of symptoms."

I hope this info helps! I would definitely suggest discussing the dosing instructions more over with your doctor just to make sure that the dose is right for "you" and not just a generalized amount.

Donnatal comes in various mgs. There is a 16mg & all the way up to 90mg. Many years ago, I took Donnatal & there wasn't a mg. noted & it was a small round tablet. I'd like to know how many mgs. that was, as it sure worked better than the Donnatal on the market now.
