IT HAS NOT BEEN SHOWNCONCLUSIVELY WHETHER ANTICHOLINERGIC/ANTISPASMODIC DRUGS AID IN THE HEALING OF ADUODENAL ULCER, DECREASE THE RATE OF RECURRENCES OR PREVENT COMPLICATIONS.


Glaucoma, obstructive uropathy (for example, bladder neck obstruction due to prostatic hypertrophy); obstructivedisease of the gastrointestinal tract (as in achalasia, pyloroduodenal stenosis, etc.); paralytic ileus, intestinal atony ofthe elderly or debilitated patient; unstable cardiovascular status in acute hemorrhage; severe ulcerative colitisespecially if complicated by toxic mega-colon; myasthenia gravis; hiatal hernia associated with reflux esophagitis.Donnatal® is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients. Phenobarbital iscontraindicated in acute intermittent porphyria and in those patients in whom phenobarbital produces restlessnessand/or excitement.


In the presence of a high environmental temperature, heat prostration can occur with belladonna alkaloids (fever andheatstroke due to decreased sweating).Diarrhea may be an early symptom of incomplete intestinal obstruction, especially in patients with ileostomy orcolostomy.

The patient should be warned, should these occur, not toengage in activities requiring mental alertness, such as operating a motor vehicle or other machinery, and not toperform hazardous work.Phenobarbital may decrease the effect of anticoagulants, and necessitate larger doses of the anticoagulant for optimaleffect. When the phenobarbital is discontinued, the dose of the anticoagulant may have to be decreased.Phenobarbital may be habit forming and should not be administered to individuals known to be addiction prone or tothose with a history of physical and/or psychological dependence upon drugs.Since barbiturates are metabolized in the liver, they should be used with caution and initial doses should be small inpatients with hepatic dysfunction.
