Re: Belladonna opium suppositories for anal spasm

Good to know there is another type although I don't think there is a problem with belladonna being toxic. Where did you hear this? Are there other types besides valium and belladonna if u know? I would like to find something for just spasm, but not pain, that is not addictive.
