Belladonna Tincture (belladonna) for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: “I received this as a soapy mixture with skull & crossbones on it, taking just one drop as needed. Very sedating but it was the only thing that stopped the spasms completely. At the time my IBS had become ulcerative colitis so a real solution was needed fast & this was a lifesaver. Doubt one would want it long term as it does sedate heavily. Still for severe pain & spasms, this worked better than any other med for me.”

Belladonna Tincture (belladonna): “I was in the recovery room following a lithotripsy procedure for breaking up kidney stones. I was writhing in excruciating spasms and given large amounts of morphine and other narcotics to no avail. Finally, a nurse figured it out and decided to give me Belladonna. Wow! That made all the difference. I’ll ask for this first the next time I have to have lithotripsy.”

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome: “I was given belladonna as a child to relieve IBS. Since 1979 I have taken Bentyl aka Dicyclomine for IBS. It has proven to be a lifesaver. It is inexpensive and works. I have had no negative side effects.”

“I purchase belladonna pellets at my health food store and if I cannot sleep after using deep breathing techniques, I will take 3 to 5 pellets and dissolve them under my tongue, it works very well for sleep.”

Belladonna Tincture (belladonna) for Gas: “The medication bebecal contains an ingredient named belladonna. Never give this medication to your baby, child or adult. It is very deadly Drs in Lebanon recommended this for my newborn baby and it disrupts the nerves system.”

“I had horrible esophageal spasms with my esophagitis. Nothing the MD gave me worked to dull the pain for more than 15 minutes. Sleeping was impossible. An ND gave me a belladonna tincture diluted in water. I got nearly immediate relief from the spasms that lasted for hours. The only side effect I noticed was a small headache.”
