I believe that this was in the shape of a caramel shape square chunk, that I chewed. I believe it was removed from the market but I am looking for what was in it to try to replace it as it was the only med that has ever helped with my problem. It might have been chocolate flavored but was definitely dark chocolate colored. ## Hello, Maple! How are you? This medication is still available, under the brand name Lomotil and as a generic, but it does require a prescription from your doctor and is no longer available as a chew, from what I understand. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and blurred vision. Is there anything else I can help with? ## was this medicine available at one time in little brown squares that you chewed?
