    levsin (Hyoscyamine)

    Hi All,

    Has anyone found levsin to be helpful with urg/freq/pressure? Is so, what dosage and how long did you take it before noticing any symptoms relieve? Urg/freq/pressure have been my main symptoms and recently my IC doctor prescribed levsin to me.

    Thank you!

    I was using the Lesvin SL, which is the sublingaul doseage. I just use it when I flare and it was very helpful. I say was because I may have to quit using it too. I had an allergic reaction to it. I got a rash all over my back, neck and shoulders.

    For me I am allergic to sulfa and now maybe the sulphates also. I had a problem with Elmiron, this Levsin and also triple antibiotic I used on a burn. It had a sulphated component in it. After talking to my Dr., pharmacist, pharmacutical company and a very knowledgeable friend, it appears that I might be reacting to the sulphated part of these drugs.

    My urologist told me I could try it again but if I react again, that is it. I really like it better than the other meds I have tried for the purpose I was using it.

    Hi Jolene,

    Thanks for the reply! Sorry asking you this, but what is sublingaul doseage. My doctor prescribed me Levsin, 0.125 mg every 6 hours as needed. Just wonder what much (dosage) you used to take it?

    Thanks!

    That is my dose exactly. I also use Hydroxyzine and really like it.
