PAREGORIC (anhydrous morphine) , USP (anhydrous morphine)

Each 5 mL (one teaspoonful) contains: Anhydrous Morphine (from Opium) 2 mg, warning: May be habit forming.

Inactive Ingredients: Alcohol 45 percent, anise oil, benzoic acid, glycerin, and purified water.

Paregoric (anhydrous morphine) is useful for the treatment of diarrhea.

Hope the info helps?

Some sources also list it as Tincture of Opium.

My mother used to give this to us when we had really bad crampy stomach flu-it did work to make those horrible break out in a sweat bellyaches go away.
