I hope I am posting into the correct forum, if not, please redirect me. I have had severe intestinal spasms since I was a teen, at which time I was prescribed a medicine called Donnatal. It has been my saving grace for over 30 years! Four months ago I was informed by my current pharmacy that the manufacturer was discontinuing making this medicine. Why? I have no idea. I went to every pharmacy in my area trying to gather what was available. Yesterday my Dr finally had to prescribe a new medicine. He chose Atropine. The pharmacy informed me this too has been discontinued. I have spent hours searching for any other medicine that may work but cannot find anything. Every site recommends the exact same thing - Donnatal. I am desperate. If anyone knows of anything that will help me, please contact me ASAP. :(:confused:
