Sandostatin Overview

Octreotide (trade name Sandostatin, among others) is an octapeptide that mimics natural somatostatin pharmacologically, though it is a more potent inhibitor of growth hormone, glucagon, and insulin than the natural hormone. It was first synthesized in 1979 by the chemist Wilfried Bauer.

Where To Purchase Paregoric

I've used Paregoric for 15 years and can't find it. Is there anywhere in the U.S. or other countries where this can be purchased? ## I have been on paregoric therapy for at least 18 years myself. (not to mention Sandostatin, Lomotil & Pamine) Have had occasions the past few years when it was not available, and now I am told the manufacturer has discontinued it. (royal pain) so Dr has now RXd tincture of opium - much less to take, but the stuff tastes like cat s**t (not that I ever tasted cat s**t) - I was hoping to find paregoric again, maybe from Canada - I'm still looking - let me know if ya wanna chat more & / or if you find a source. Would be nice to get out of the house again! Thanks bud - Jim ## Thanks for your reply. I called Canada, and they don't have it...

doctors who prescribe sandostatin in cincinnati

My sister is going back to Cincinnati and needs to find a doctor who can prescribe Sandostatin IV's each month ## Hello, Chardann! How are you? There are no doctors that prescribe any particular medication, outside of those that specialize in addiction treatment. She needs to just find a new doctor in Cincinnati and go from there. If she needs a specialist, they will be able to refer her to one. Is there anything else I can help with?
