Hyoscyamine Overview

Hyoscyamine (also known as daturine) is a tropane alkaloid. It is a secondary metabolite found in certain plants of the Solanaceae family, including henbane (Hyoscyamus niger), mandrake (Mandragora officinarum), jimsonweed (Datura stramonium), tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) and deadly nightshade (Atropa belladonna).

how long does hyoscyamine take to work
1 Reply RSS
I took pill 3 hours ago and i am in the same amount of pain if not more than when i went to hospital. Could i possibly been misdiagnosed with ibs. ## Hello, Jess! How are you? Well, this isn't actually an analgesic, so it's not going to relieve pain. What Hyoscyamine does is help alleviate the intestinal spasms associated with IBS and other gastrointestinal disorders, but it will take some time for it to reach its full level of efficacy in your body. You should only take it as prescribed and give a few weeks, to see if it works for you. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including dry mouth, blurred vision, dizziness and flushing. Is there anything else I can help with?

My mother's nursing home says they can no longer give my mother this drug because it is no longer being made. Is this true? Two days without the drug and she starts throwing up from too much saliva in her stomach. She is 89 and will die without it. Is there another equivalant drug avaliable?? Please tell me where to turn. Thanks so much. Virginia Holloway Baton Rouge, La. vaholloway at aol ## Hi Virginia, From what I found, it is just a rumor that it has been withdrawn from the market. "RUMOR: Hyoscyamine (Levsin, Levbid, etc) is going off the market. TRUTH: All hyoscyamine products are unapproved. They came on the market before FDA approval was required. The FDA hasn't taken any action against these products...yet. But several companies have voluntarily withdrawn their prod...

Take .125 mg three times a day. Experience sever side effects. Stooping dose immediately. How long will it take for relief of side effects??? ## Hi, Mel! What types of side effects did you experience? As to how long they should take to resolve, that's really going to depend on how long you were taking it and you weren't specific. If it was for a short period of time, it shouldn't take more than a few days, but it can vary from person to person. Learn more Hyoscyamine details here. Have you consulted your doctor? If they were really severe, then you need to do that to make sure nothing dangerous is going on.

white pill with b 325
2 Replies RSS
small round pill withn b325and a line with nothin underneath, and nothing on the otherside ## I was given this pill with a new prescription for the hyoscyamine sulfate pill that I take for difficulty in swallowing and discomfort in the throat area. It is totally different from the one I usually take. That number is E 423, and when I put it under my tongue, it is immediately dissolved and my throat problems are relieved. The B 325 pill is larger, does not dissolve immediately, and I am afraid to take it. Are they for totally different symptoms? The only difference is that the new pill (B 325) says hyoscyamine sulfate 0.125 mg tab, when my regular pill says hyoscyamine sulfate 0.125 mg taeth. Don't understand. Want my regular pill back. ## The tablet with B 325 marking is the same med...
