Is this suitable for gastritis please?
This product is only licensed for relief of the symptoms of diarrhoea and upset stomachs in adults and children over 12 years. It therefore wouldn't be suitable for you.
Can one still buy Kaolin and morphine? I had a bottle a few years ago but havenâ€™t been able to buy it recently.
It is no longer the recommended treatment and so many pharmacies do not sell. If you have tried other products without success then you can buy it yes, https://www.chemist-4-u.com/care-kaolin-mixture-200ml
I used to suffer from Diarrhoea and use this product and it would cure me and i could function but i haven't been able to find this product in stock anywhere since i ran out recently. since then i've been suffering from crippling Diarrhoea whenever i eat. do you know if this product will ever be back in stock and if not is there anything you could recommend that has been known to be as effective as Kaolin & Morphine Mixture?
I have just spoken with medical information at Thornton and Ross the manufacturers of Kaolin & Morphine mixture. They are reformulating the product and this will be out of stock for a minimum of 6 months.
An alternative would be Loperamide Capsules.
