So i have IBS and will get really sick if i eat too much fat. I pretty much was just eating rice and bread and veggies when the doctor told me about this. I call them magic pills. It is very important for me at least that you take them BEFORE (or with food, or even a bit after, but not too much at all) you eat. It makes a huge diffrence, it can PREVENT the spasms. After finding these I could eat whatever I wanted as long as I took enough pills, but be careful, becuase you will dry up if you take too many. So now after 1 yr on the pills, they don't seem to work as well, and then theyll work better, and then not so well again, but still the best thing around.

I have IBS and this is the first medicine that has relieved the intense cramping. I have found that using a heating pad along with the medication brings quicker relief. The only drawback is that the Levsin tends to make me a bit sleepy.

The doctors told me I had IBS, no such thing. I have gluten intolerance. Get tested for gluten intolerance. I have improved 200 %. Taking this drug and changing my diet. When docs can't figure out what is wrong-they label you with IBS. A change in your diet is critical and will help the people that can't take this drug. You will get your life back.

Levsin really worked for me and I felt the best I have felt in a long time while taking it. However they are no longer making it from what I am being told. Now my problems are back and I feel like crap again. Has anyone found a replacement for this drug? If so please advise, many thanks in advance!

I see people here think it's no longer available. I get it now- Hyoscyamine- generic for levsin. It works very good. But I do get headaches from it.

my newborn had really bad colic, his doctor put him on levsin, instantly he was better, he could sleep (and so could i !) if your baby has colic talk to your doctor about this medication, it works!

This medicine is very easy to take, because it can be placed under your tongue. Although, the few times that I took Levsin it made me feel very strange. I had dizziness, blurred vision, slurred speech, and a very fast heartrate. There is absolutely no way that I could take this medicine and function enough to drive or work. The effects were scary enough that I will never take this again.
