... someone mentioned that they use Tincture of Opium and I was wondering how much. I have been using it for some time now and with the shortage of Paregoric I am upping my dose. (at my doctors adivce) He told me to take more and see how it goes. I would like to know an amount to try. Now i am taking 8 drops 6-8 times a day and it is still not helping.I have very short bowell, 4ft small intestine, no large. Any ideas?
Yes, I do for 6months now. it has been the ONLY med that has slowed me down and gave me back my life. :)) You do eventually build a tolerance. So you may need to increase dosage. Do you take Entocort (cortisteroid) with it? I was told it enhances the Paregoric & Opium while also enhancing Entocort to there optiumal Potential.
I take 10mg/ml 4-6X a day up to ten drops per dose
Hope this Helps! Good Luck & Best Wishes
