Its a pretty common prescription for IBS and can be benefical for some people for sure.

Yup I take it from time to time. Only as needed for IBS pain. Works fairly well but can be drying BUUUUUUT! also can firm up loose BM's. So it is a bittersweet type of drug.
It made me loopy when I first began taking it. However over time that loopiness waned. (Or I no longer notice
)BQ

OK... thanx Guys... the way she spoke about it, she made it sound as if it were some kind of new breakthrough or something and she didn't think it had been around very long. Apparently it has?

Well, if you count it's use dating back to the times when the Belladonna plant was utilized for many an herbal concotion, then I would suppose one could say that it has ven been around for centuries.However, in it's new form, it is rather new because if memory serves me correctly, a new time released version is available?Any way, I take it up to 4 x a day and it worlks fine for me.Kamie

I've tried Levsin - it was one of my doctor's automatic response whenever I mentioned IBS. Nothing else just this. Anyway, I found it helped with the spasms for me but nothing for the D attacks. But then I alternate between C and D so maybe that's why. I don't remember feeling loopy or sleepy on it but I remember the dry mouth. Same with Donnatol when I used it years ago. Personally, I gave up on this route, but then the pain was never the big problem for me.good lucknancy

It worked wonders when I took it for my D. One pill a day and it really gave me my life back.
