I have been taking Co-danthrusate 50/60mg capsules for many

Resolved Question:

I have been taking Co-danthrusate 50/60mg capsules for many years. I have now been informed that the manufacturers have stopped production and have spoken to them and they have no other product for replacement, have also spoken to the Consultant who prescribed these originally and has not come with a substitute. Any suggestions for a alternative please.

The only way to get this combination is to purchase the ingredients on your own and combine them.

The ducosate you can get almost anywhere.

Here is where you can get the other component:
