Re: for catloverlou

Hello there! It was one of the first meds. my doctor prescribed. I took the hyoscamine that they prescribe for daily use, and they didnt help anything. I take the sublingual kind if I have the very painful spasms with the D. They do work well for those, but they dont stop the D, so thats why I take the digest ad. and the calcium. I also take the anti D pills if I have an attack, but like I said its been a while since I needed those. Hope this helps, catlover

Purpose of medication and method of action: Hyoscamine is an antispasmotic when taken either orally or under the tongue reduces gastric motility, gastrointestinal tone (spasms), bladder spasms and intestinal hypermotility which results in diarhhea. It acts by blocking the effects of acetylcholine, the body chemical which increases gastrointestinal and bladder tone and which in excess can produce spasms.
