 Levsin Hyoscyamine
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,...
Levsin
I take Levsin under the tongue for BPH. The NIH website says people(me) over 65 should usually not take Levsin because it is not as safe and effective as other available medications. Is this something I need to address, or is it not important? ## I found the statement that you were referring to: "talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of taking hyoscyamine if you are 65 years of age or older. Older adults should not usually take hyoscyamine because it is not as safe and may not be as effective as other medications that can be used to treat the same condition." Unfortunately, in any medical situation, a patient has to be their own best advocate. Doctors often prescribe medications according to their experience with how well something has worked for other patients and, w... ...

Hyoscyamine (Levsin)
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 vaholloway at aol ## Hi Virginia, From what I found, it is just a rumor that it has been withdrawn from the market.

Does Anyone Else Use Levsinex
I have had severe bouts of diarhhea, bloating, and gas for over a month. I have done a lot of reading about this on the Internet and think I may have irritable bowel syndrome. I have seen a GI and am having an endoscopy/colonoscopy on 10/19. When I saw her she would not prescribe anything for me and the episodes have become more frequent. A friend of mine who is a nurse said I should call the GI and tell her I can't live like this until she gets does the endoscopy/colonoscopy. She said I should ask her to call in a script for Levsinex capsules. I would appreciate input from anyone out there who has used this med or something similar. ## Hi Leigh, I personally don't use Levsinex (Hyoscyamine) but I thought I could provide you with some information about what it's used for, it... ...

mebeverine hydrochloride antispasmodic pharmacology
mebeverine hydrochloride antispasmodic pharmacology ## My IBS cramping occurs almost always at night, interrupting sleep. Sublingual Levsin .125 mg. provides about a two hour respite, but the violent peristalsis returns. I have resisted taking the drug a third time, but loss of sleep is taking a toll. I am treating with high quality probiotics as well as several brands of digestive enzymes with meals; have limited food choices more and more and have ruled out gluten intolerance. Fresh veggies, salads and fruit seem to make the condition worse. I have purchased some mebeverine and am taking it 20 minutes before meals, but no relief. Would it be more effective taken at bedtime? I have had periods of IBS on and off for decades, but a change in enzymes has brought months of relief until now... ...

will this be back in production soon?
I was taking this with medication for IC and was working well with other meds to help but about a month or so ago I was unable to get it any more. Pharmacist said that the plant burnt down.....Will this be back in production soon and if so when might it be available to the pharmacist again? Thanks so much ## Possible, but doubtful. This actually has nothing to do with the plant burning down, this is one of those meds that was actually never approved by the FDA and it hasn't been proven to treat anything, so they pulled it from the market. ## I have been taking this (Levsinex-time released) for many years (15+) for IBS. Before finding this med., I was house-bound (runs) and malnutritioned, and was ridiculed for making myself have the runs (5+times a day) because I wanted to or it was... ...
