According to precautions in the drug monograph, "Scopinal is not recommended for use if you have the following medical conditions: myasthenia gravis, certain eye problems (e.g., glaucoma), prostate problems (e.g., BPH with urinary obstruction), certain heart problems (e.g., angina, tachycardia), certain stomach/G.I. problems (e.g., megacolon, stenotic lesions)."

I do not see anything noted above pertaining to G6pd deficiency and from what I've investigated, potential symptoms of G6pd deficiency include: fever, dark urine, abdominal and back pain, fatigue, and pale skin.

In my own personal opinion, I don't see why your son wouldn't be able to get a prescription for Scopinal. However, it's always a good idea to double check with the prescribing doctor beforehand.

Does anyone else have feedback to add?
