Donnatal (atropine / hyoscyamine / phenobarbital / scopolamine) for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "I Have had IBS for 30 years now ago. My PCP recently wrote me a script for Donnatal Elixer. Unfortunately, my prescription insurance is denying me this medication stating, "Non-Essential Medication...Rejected, Not Covered." I want to know when my prescription insurance company received their medical degree and at what time have they ever examined me and/or read through my complex medical conditions/history. To add insult to injury I also have Common Variable Immune Deficiency which is known to cause major G/I complications, including infections and intestinal inflammation/pain. I plan to appeal the denial for the Donnatal Elixer. Also, the intestinal cramping I suffer renders me paralyzed with pain, unable to sit or walk."

Donnatal (atropine / hyoscyamine / phenobarbital / scopolamine) for Duodenal Ulcer: "I use this medication to treat severe acid reflux. Mixed with Mylanta or Mallox liquid it works extremely well. It's very old school and insurance won't pay for it, for that reason, but I still pay the $200 plus to get."

Donnatal (atropine / hyoscyamine / phenobarbital / scopolamine) for Duodenal Ulcer: "It really helped when I had a stomach pain.This is a common symptom with Behcet's disease. I'd suffer from doubled over stomach aches and Donnatal gives me relief. It is available as a pill."

Donnatal (atropine / hyoscyamine / phenobarbital / scopolamine) for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "This is the best thing since sliced bread (don't mean to really say this but...) Went off of it due to the price being so high. The replacement prescription did not work at all. After two months of problems again, I gave up and called in for the pills. Lifesaver, worked immediately, now I am happy again. Can go out, live normally. Took eight years off hell with IBS and other gastrointestinal problems until my doctor gave me this as a last resort, thank goodness he did. I went thru many, many, addictive medicines and such, very happy I found this."

Donnatal (atropine / hyoscyamine / phenobarbital / scopolamine) for Duodenal Ulcer: "Donnatal is so expensive. Go to donnatal website. There is a link to click on drug assist. I called. They sent me a prescription for free. Also my doctor had a coupon. I only had to pay $15 for 90 pills"

Donnatal (atropine / hyoscyamine / phenobarbital / scopolamine) for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "One of the BEST medicines ever for IBS. I suffered Cdiff for a long time and the aftermath led me having severe stomach muscle spasms , they would knock me off my feet. I tried every medicine you can think of, the only medicine that compared to helping is Librax but it didn't work as good as Donntal, however it's extremely expensive, for a 30 day supply is 285$. But when in so much pain you do what you have to. Hope the best for everyone reading this."

Donnatal (atropine / hyoscyamine / phenobarbital / scopolamine) for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "I'm 35 and one of the first memories I have is me at about four reeling in pain from IBS-D. I have often thought about just taking the easy way out due to the constant agony. Then one day an amazing gastro suggested Donnatal and within about three hours of taking it I was pain free. This stuff is a life changer for me at least."

Donnatal (atropine / hyoscyamine / phenobarbital / scopolamine) for Duodenal Ulcer: "Was given this medication as an liquid form along with a couple of other liquid medications. I had to drink like a half of gallon non stop, but within 5 to 10 minutes my Irritable Bowel Syndrome relaxed and I started flautuating like crazy in the emergency room in front of the doctor and nurse. The doctor said that's what we wanted. Within 1 hour my IBS was completed gone. The problem now is my doctor prescribed me Donnatal and the prescription is $600.00 with insurance, so now I'm back suffering with IBS day after day knowing if I could just get that medication I would be fine again. "

Donnatal (atropine / hyoscyamine / phenobarbital / scopolamine) for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "I have used Donnatal for over 2 years mainly for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. It works every single time I have a flare-up like nothing else I have ever taken. Hands down the best medication in my opinion. No side effects, reduces sweating but that also helps me since I tend to sweat a lot. It also has helped me with anxiety as well as during weaning from opiate medications. GREAT MEDICINE. Only con is that not all pharmacies carry it anymore. "

Donnatal (atropine / hyoscyamine / phenobarbital / scopolamine) for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "I am a 45 year old male who has suffered from IBS since my teens. Nothing has been successful until I went to Italy and learned about Donnatal. When I returned to the States i asked my Dr. about Donnatal and he said it was an old medicine, which he hasn't prescribed in years. He gave me a prescription and my pains, and loose bowl movements have stopped. I have been taking this medicine for 3 months and now I can function normally.. now I have my life back. I reported this to my Dr. who was surprised and has started to prescribe it again with some great feedback. I find the liquid Donnatal works best. I can even drink Coffee again."

Donnatal (atropine / hyoscyamine / phenobarbital / scopolamine) for Enterocolitis: "I had been seeing G.I. specialist for months for intermittent nausea and vomiting that led to horrible stomach and chest pain. My G.I. tried everything, nothing seemed to worked, I even threw up on Zofran twice(strongest anti-nausea medicine you can get). I wind up in the ER about monthly for complications with dehydration and anemia, and at the ER I was put on Donnatal. Donnatal was a miracle! I can now function, leave my house most days, and no longer spend every day wishing I would just die because of the pain. It doesn't fix everything but without it I am really bad. "

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "I just found out about Crohn's disease. After three years of suffering this is the first time a doctor gave me a medication that actually works. I'm used to getting a GI cocktail at the ER, but to have this medicine in hand always makes me feel safe from embarrassing accidents. I'm 40 years old, and this began in 2007 at age 36. The ER doctors told me it was a virus go home, but now I know I'm not crazy. Thanks for this medicine, it's a miracle."

Donnatal (atropine / hyoscyamine / phenobarbital / scopolamine) for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "I was recently diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome and given Belladonna/Phenabarbital, as well as Dexilant (acid reducer). I felt great for the first week of being on these; however after that it has gone downhill, with severe diarrhea and headaches. I have lost 13 lbs since taking these medicines and concerned with which medicines cause this. The Dexilant seems to cause the diarrhea, but I'm left wondering why the headaches are so bad. Any assistance would be great...cannot function w/the headaches and nothing over the counter touches them."

Donnatal (atropine / hyoscyamine / phenobarbital / scopolamine) for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "My GI Doctor has tried half a a dozen different drugs for my IBS and none could seem to to do the trick. I pretty much gave up all hope until during my yearly physical my PCP (who has been practicing 35 years) mentioned I tried a much older drug called Donnatal. He told me it was an old drug but proven effective time and time again. I filled the script and immediately started taking it. I noticed improvement almost immediately and have been taking it regularly for 3 months now with no complaints. Donnatal is my miracle."

Donnatal (atropine / hyoscyamine / phenobarbital / scopolamine) for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "It relieves my stomach pains due to severe bloating and gas. It is sedating. Once I take it, if I am somewhere comfortable, I can dose off. It is a very good medicine."

Donnatal (atropine / hyoscyamine / phenobarbital / scopolamine) for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "I have used Donnatal for years for Irritable Bowel Syndrome diarrhea. It is a miracle medicine. I stop it when it stops working. I could not have worked or gone out of house without it. However I have high liver levels and wonder if the Donnatal caused this. I stopped it when went on Savella for fibromyalgia. The Savella also helps my IBS. Not on anything now, on FMLA at present. Will have to go on something if I return to work."

Donnatal (atropine / hyoscyamine / phenobarbital / scopolamine) for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "I used Librax for IBS. Only been on this for 2 days, but I feel the drug is working well, will continue. I have had IBS for years, but it comes and goes and sometimes no symptoms for months. But I recently had a sinus infection and they put me on antibiotic LEVAQUIN. After using it, it brought back my IBS problems."
