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). It is the levorotary isomer of atropine (third of the three major nightshade alkaloids) and thus sometimes known as levo-atropine. Hyoscyamine should not be confused with hyoscine,...

what is hyoscyam

I acquired P. HYOSCYAM in a large antique looking tin and am wondering if anyone can provide further information on it? I was told it could possibly be from the civil war era. ## Hello, Ben! How are you? Yes, it is most likely very old. Hyoscyamine is an antispasmodic that is used to treat conditions, such as IBS, peptic ulcers, pancreatitis and cystitis. It is not very commonly used, anymore. Though, it is still available in the U.S. via prescription. Typical side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include dry mouth, dry throat, eye pain, blurred vision, dizziness and flushing. It can be toxic, if someone takes too much, so it has to be dosed very carefully. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I seriously doubt the pills are from the civil war era. The tin possibly is f...

RP 115 tablet
1 Reply RSS
What is this? It's a large flat grayish tablet ## Hi Lillie, Just had a few questions pertaining to your pill description: Is the RP and 115 on the same side of the tablet? What shape is the tablet? Any possibility that the "R" could be an "A", based on the font or pill condition? The closest match I've seen here is a white oblong shaped pill with AP on one side and 115 on the back. This particular tablet reportedly contains 0.375 mg of Hyoscyamine sulfate ER; used for treating various digestive problems, including IBS. For verification, the manufacturer who makes this is called Franklin Pharma and the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 50532-0115. I hope this helps!

Expired Hyoscyamine prescription, is it safe?
2 Replies RSS
I Have Severe Ulcer Pain And have Taken Hyoscyamine Sublingual Tabs With Good Results. I have meds But The Prescription Is Expired From 2007. Is It Safe To Take Now? ## According to Harvard Medical School family health article, except in rare cases (i.e. tetracycline), there is little chance of danger due to taking medications even up to 15 years beyond their expiration date. This conclusion was based upon a study conducted at the request of the US military due to stockpiles of expensive drugs they could otherwise need to replace every few years. The conclusion was that 90% of those drugs remained effective 10 - 15 years after the expiration date. Source: health.harvard.edu/fhg/updates/update1103a.shtml But the question is whether the drug you have kept happens to be one of these drugs ...

Still in pain, need advice
1 Reply RSS
Well I've been prescribed hyocyamine 0.125mg sub vir. I'm supposed to take it every 6 hours for my lower abdomen pains However I'm still in pain, can I take more or should I just sit through the pain. ## Hello, Julio! How are you? It would be best not to change your dosage, without your doctor's approval. This medication isn't an actual analgesic, it works by decreasing the motion of your stomach and intestines. I can also take several weeks to reach its full level of efficacy in your body. How long have you been taking it? The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, bloating and blurred vision.

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?

I found a white pill it has just the number 10 and a split on the other side to half it I can't find it anywhere on the internet to figure what this is do u have any idea of what it could be ## @kailani, Based on your description, information I'm finding shows that a round white pill marked with the number 10 on one side and scored on the other is identified as a 0.125 mg Hyoscyamine sulfate tablet, manufactured by Virtus Pharma. Hyoscyamine is generally prescribed for treating disorders associated with the gastrointestinal tract, but lists a variety of other uses as well from bladder spasms, irritable bowels, heart conditions, parkinson's, etc...

I was given this pill and told it was from puerto rico when visiting but told me she took it from her niece wwho was getting high from it. its not tiny but a small white round pill thats scored on 1 side aand 20 on the other. ## Hi Maria, I don't know if this pill could be related, but from what I'm finding online the closest match is a white round pill with "10" on one side and scored on the other; just like how you described it. I was initially thinking that they might be the same drug with a lesser dosage, but this particular pill I came across is made here in the US. It's identified as a 10mg Hyoscyamine sulfate tablet, used for GI tract disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome and other related conditions. I noticed that they also make a 20mg version as well, ...

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...
