I really depend on this medication. If I didn't take it, I couldn't eat and keep a meal in me. I have to try the generic because I'm going on MediCare and I don't think they or a supplement insurance will pay for it. I don't know yet what I'll do.

The first time I took it, it gave me dry mouth, which was expected. Unfortunately now that I've taken it a few more times, I find that it makes me dizzy and weak. I don't think it's been all that effective for my IBS, and the side effects certainly outweigh the benefits right now.

I have lactose intolerance. This drug was prescribed by my family doctor to treat the extreme stomach pain related to ingesting dairy products which contain lactose. I try to avoid dairy but when I make a mistake I really pay dearly in horrible stomach cramps. I can take2 Levsin 0.125 mg S/L to completely abate the cramps within 30 minutes. It is a godsend.

I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease a year ago and prescribed Levsin. It worked wonderful at reduces cramping immediately. I was told when I went to get my refill that it is no longer on the market. If anyone knows why or where I can get it again, I would appreciate it! It's the best drug for having stomache cramping and/or IBS.

I had a rough time of it before ever taking this medication. I was afraid to be out most of the time for fear I would have an accident, this pill has been a lifesaver for me!!

I have severe IBS and this medication has helped some, but I've developed thyroiditis since I started using...? related to the sublingual administration? Ever hear of a connection? Seeing my doctor tomorrow.
