When I first got diagnosed with IBS back in 1997, the doctor gave me Levsin. All it did was make me drowsy and cause me to lose my appetite and I'm pretty sure it made my condition worse at the time.

Am now unable to locate it, several pharmacies that I use say they can n ... Show Full Comment

After finding these I could e ... Show Full Comment
