>Here is a web site:
>My husband went to get my percoset refilled and one of the nurses told him
>of belladonna. (Sometimes the nurses know more than the doctors-have you
>noticed that?). She had the doctor (mine was not there) prescribe belladonna
>(Donnatal), which she said was great with stomach and bowel cramps. (I have
>been practically in labour since November.) Two days on the new med and
>voila! It worked!
>They say it is an old drug that has been around forever. It's strange, but I
>swear I read about it in Little Women, as Jo sat in a dark closet and took
>some. And I believe Victorian ladies put the liquid form in their eyes to
>make them sparkle.
>My eyes must be sparkling as I have been painfree, save 2-3 teensy twinges,
>since it started to work-about a week now. And when I told my doctor he
>said, "That's great, kiddo! I'll give you all the belladonna you need!"
>In difficult moments, behave like a duck. Keep calm and unruffled on the
