My husband takes Paregoric (tincture of Morphine) for his IBS which is the only thing that works for him. He had a brand that he could tolerate, but then they took it off the market. The one he was left with is camphorated tincture of morphine that tastes like eating a teaspoon of Vicks Vapor Rub (the camphor). He could not stand the taste and stopped taking his meds - diarrhea for a month straight. I went to a compounding pharmacy and told the pharmacist about the problem - he gave me two samples of compounding syrup that really helps make the taste tolerable. His favorite is the Raspberry flavor although Cherry syrup which is sold OTC as Emetrol is ok too. I wanted to share this because when I looked into this, no one really gave a good suggestion as to how to kill the taste and make it tolerable. Any other suggestions?
