Scopace discontinued. Any alternate sources?

I've just learned that Hope Pharmaceuticals, the sole producer of Scopace (oral scopolamine hydrobromide tablets) in the US, stopped making them about two years ago. Too late to lay up a supply, and aside from the way more expensive and less convenient patches, I'm not interested in any other drugs. Bonine, Meclazine, Marezine, Sturgeron, all the herbals, I know all about them and the electric wrist bands as well.

That's not an issue here.

What I'd like to know is if anyone knows a US source, or a reliable source that can sell to the US, for oral scop tablets.

Or someone who can put a curse on the management at Hope Pharmaceuticals, perhaps setting them asea in small boats and heavy seas until they've reconsidered the evil of their ways.

Yes! I get mine from Steven's Pharmacy ( scopolamine.net ) They've taken over Scopace ( scopace.com ) . So happy

Thanks. I'm almost afraid to ask, what do they charge for custom compounding? Scopace used to be about $35/100 pills. (And yes, I've emailed to ask them.)

it's about $120/100 capsules. And yes, sorry to say, but it has come up in price. Probably due to the fact that it can't be mass produced and has to be custom compounded. But again, can't beat the results..

Yes. I'd been looking at similar drugs (there are several) but I've got a compounding pharmacy nearby and plan to stop by and ask them when I eventually go past.

Good luck! If the pharmacy doesn't work out, I'd definitely recommend giving Stevens RX (scopolamine.net) a call, they ship domestic.
