I've been taking Donnatal for 50 years and suddenly find that the only form I can find is the brand name (available for only $440 or so for 100 pills). The last time I purchased it (about 2 years ago) it was 25 cents per pill.
You can check some old mom/pop type drug stores. A diff company bought it out & now only brand name is available as user #2 pointed out. I went to one pharmacy & they quoted me a price of around $150.00. Checked w/ my local Rite Aid & he had just enough to fill my prescrip w/ generic which cost me around $30.00. Then the next time the Rite Aid was out of the generic so I called a little mom/pop pharmacy & they had enough generic to fill my prescrip. I guess next month I will be looking for more generic @ diff pharmacies. My ins won't pay for 2 reasons... 1, only brand name available & 2, they say Bentyl or Levisin work just as well & plenty of generic. I disagree as the Donnatal has worked 10x better than the others. That's really al the info I have & it came from my pharmacist.
