I started on it about
6-weeks ago. I used to just use the Levsin which I put under my tongue when I'm out and about
and start getting the intestinal cramping. It did a pretty good job of relieving the symptoms but was not very long lasting. My GI doc started me on the Hyomax which is basically the same thing, only in extended release form so its supposed to last longer. I take 1/2 a pill every morning. If I start getting symptomatic, I take another 1/2 or just take a Levsin. My main complaint is with these drugs is the dry mouth side effect. Otherwise, I'm fairly happy with them.
Diagnosed 13+ years ago.
Been in remission for short periods of time but each time I come out of remission my disease seems to have spread. No longer isolated in my ileum, now from stomach down to rectum. Currently have C-Diff.
