... was an infant to about 7 or 8 yrs of age.I am 48 yrs old and have had life long health issues with my stomach and now have been told I have auto immune diesease also several orthopedic issues. My twins have now been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and were born with kidney and bladder problems. I have always been alcohol and drug intolerant and now am fighting several health problems. My doctors have been unable to understand why I have bone density issues and osteo arthritis as well as osteopenia and several spinal disc problems. I live in extreme pain now and have since I was a teenager. My question is... Did this drug Paregoric given to me was something if not a cause to some of my health issues. My Grandmother took care of me from time to time and told me I would go through withdrawls each time. I had great difficulty eating and still do. Thank you for your time... EB
My mother and grandmother also gave me paregoric when I had an upset stomach. I have used it for IBS since about 1980 (I am now 70). I have never had a side effect from the drug, and I am on no other medications except for depression and anxiety caused by the stupid IBS. I am trying to find paregoric, as it has become very hard to find. I understand from one company that the FDA made them stop making it, but I have no proof of that fact. Note: I only used the drug as prescribed and only as needed.
