The dosage is 5 ml twice a day... I have a slightly enlarged prostrate (63 yrs old) and a mild underactive thyroid... Should I ask my urinary doctor and primary doctor if they agree with my gastroenterologist prescribing this drug ? Have you had paregoric prescribed to firm up stool (has been pudding consistency).
Dear Wakulla 168, Sorry about your thyroid and colitis problems. Wish I could help you, but I too have a problem, Short Bowel Syndrome. The only drug that will relieve the diarrhea from this is Paregoric. Where do you find it? I have had a normal life for many years with this drug but now cannot find it. Don't want to stay housebound. If you can help, I shall appreciate it. Capt. Shaw
i definitly know the pudding effect! iam on paregoric liquid also could not live without it! i take @ bedtime i also have hysocyamiine 0.125mg sublingual that i only take during bad episode due to blurred vision and drowsiness.paregoric liquid is the only med. that i have no side effects from.
I have had Crohn's for 39 years. The last time i called in for Paregoric, i was told they do not even make it anymore! I had my colon and rectum removed in 2001,the illeostomy runs like a water faucet,all day and night. The only way i can get it stopped is taking Lomotil. (little tiny white pills) I have been told by Dr.'s they are not good for you , but i have been told a LOT of Lies by doctors. Try the Lomotil, but be careful,those little bity pills will actually constapate you if you take too many. That is worse than continous diarrhea! leumas53
