I take immodium for D and hyoscyamine for spasm. My concern is about drug interaction, can I take both at the same time or should i wait at least an hour between doses. Also, is there any disadvantage in taking both drugs. Thank you.

One is to stop your bm's and the other is to relax your GI system, I woud not think that there would be any sort of drug interaction. If your worried call your pharmacist... they can help you. Good luck

I take both of these together and they work quite well

Pretty sure as well there is no problem taking both, but if your concerned as mentioned ask a pharmicist or your doctor.

Both are commonly used in IBS.
