Testimonial on Belladonna, "I suffer from acid reflux which I had for many years and did not know it, thinking it was from a heart murmur. I ended up taking a ride by ambulance to E.R. thinking it was a heart attack to learn no, it's just acid reflux and my heart is fine. At that time they gave me 12 tablets of Belladonna Alkaloids w/PB tablets, take 2 every 6 hours as needed for chest pains. Well I was a psych nurse for many years, so hate to take anything I don't have to. I managed to make these last for two years using them only as needed and kept one last one for what I thought would be an emergency day, but didn't need it. Now much to my horror we've had a terrible crisis in our family, so I've really had a hard five months now. Plus my other daughter is getting married and all the stress has been very difficult physically. I do not have the money to spend $20 for my primary care doctor and $30 plus 20% of the bill for a specialist and another $40 for medications at this time. I am also taking sulphur 30X for my eczema which has given me such wonderful relief by the way, the flu preventative 3 pellets once a week and Zantac for indigestion. I used that one belladonna tab I had, but I need a few more to get me through this horrible time of stress, along with the indigestion I have the heartburn chest pain. I found Belladonna on this site but do not know how much I should take. This is just for a few hectic days not continually. I have a very intense computer/phone job where I work in several screens and do a lot of customer service so I do not take anything like Unisom or other heavy medications. However, I'm off for two weeks and definitely need something to help me. I have the Calms Forte which have helped a little, but not like the Belladonna did for the chest pains. Thanks you for your time. Sincerely, Sue."
