Not really Donnatal (phenobarbital atropine hyoscyamine and scopolamine): Donnatal (phenobarbital atropine hyoscyamine and scopolamine) is an anticholinergic and barbiturate combination to treat irritable bowel syndrome and intestinal ulcers. It works reducing intestinal muscle contraction. It contains hyoscyamine, atropine, scopolamine (all anticholinergics) and Phenobarbital (an anticonvulsant) It comes in tablets and elixir (containing only phenobarbital.) Donnatal (phenobarbital atropine hyoscyamine and scopolamine) is the brand name, but only if having Pb in it.

Neither: Those are anti-spasm medications and have no role in the treatment of ulcers. You would need a ppi and treatment of hpylori if present.

Child with GI: In children with GI issues the things i always check are food allergies and diet. History of frequent antibiotics. I also check to see if the child is under stress as children usually complain of stomach issues when stressed. If he has not seen a pediatric gastroenterologist i would suggest he be evaluated. I will first remove all gluten and dairy from their diet to see if this helps.

Sounds transient: Sounds like a transient condition that will clear up on its own (since you are already having improvement at 24 hours). A virus is often the cause and this can take a few days to clear up. Good luck ! symptoms like these deserve a full evaluation in person by your health care provider.
