    When is Motofen going to be available again?? I stocked up on it months ago (just in case they took it off the market again -- and they DID) but am down to a week's supply! Anybody know what's going on!!??

    After several trials and errors, this medication changed my life. However, upon trying to obtain a refill of my prescription, I have been advised by Valeant Pharmaceuticals that it is out of the drug and it is back ordered until August, 2008. No warning, nothing. I don't know if a physician can prescribe a different medication which will give me similar results. It is very frustrating to find something that works and then have it taken away.

    I've had to suddenly stop this drug after taking it for 15 years. Now I am also housebound and need relief from somewhere.

    My experience with this drug is very similar to the last patient's. I love it, it works wonders for me. Now it's unavailable, and I could just scream

    I have used this drug for 5 years. Without it, I am almost housebound with IBS. I have not been able to find a replacement for this since it has been on backorder from the manufacturer. I have tried many drugs over the years, but nothing works as good as this.

    Taking Motofen, I feel as close to "normal" as I would imagine. Car trips, going out to dinner with friends, in short, going anywhere where finding a bathroom is uncertain...all is possible with Motofen. I call it my "miracle pill." Why is it off the market? Help!

    I have Crohns. The ease of using Motofen has made my life much easier. This medication has given me the confidence to be able to go on outings with my family that would not be consider without Motofen.
