Motofen

I am so happy that Motofen is back on the market! ## Motofen is a medication that is most commonly used for the short-term treatment of diarrhea, it contains Difenoxin and Atropine. It is distantly related to the opioid family, so it is recommended that it only be used for a short time, because otherwise it can cause withdrawal effects. It can also cause side effects, such as nausea, burning eyes, blurred vision and dizziness. More information: Are there any questions or comments?

Unable to find motofen

Unable to find or obtain this Rx. Have crohnes disease and this drug has been a lifesaver. have been unable to obtain this medication since about March of 2008 ## I need Motofen as well. Have you located any? ## I just called the compnay that makes Motofen for a customer and they said it should be available again towards the end of 2009. ## I am desperate to locate Motofen! No one in my area has this RX! They have all told me that the manufacturer has stopped making it so it cannot be ordered! Help! Does anyone have any info on this, or do you know of a substitute??
