Replaces one discomfort for another
Prescribed for ongoing stomach cramping and discomfort. This rx decreased the severity and intensity of cramps but replaced with a constant low grade nausea and different feeling of discomfort that is more consistent and ongoing than the episodes of cramping. Don't feel well on this medicine and am debating stopping it and enduring my bouts of cramping instead.

Side Effects Bothersome
Sores on tongue and throat feels tight. I do think it is working on me. But I worry about these side effects.I am hoping this too will pass because there are not many drugs for my bladder situation, I have been told by doc.

Ineffective
County Line brand is very different from recalled Virtus brand. Pill integrity lacking. Tablet was crumbly and disintegrated immediately. Felt like placebo, as did not address or help spasms at all. Condition regressed immediately.

Does not work for me
I was prescribed this for my IBS stomach cramps. I don't feel any relief from it. I prefer Bentyl. The things I don't like about either of these medications is the dry mouth. Drinking water doesn't help. A cough drop or hard candy works better.

I don't like it.
I was prescribed Hyocyamine Sulfate to mitigate any stomach cramping and nausea/vomiting associated with a gastric balloon procedure. The drug makes my mouth extremely dry and makes me feel like I am going to have a panic attack, shaking and paranoid. I crawled back into bed until the side effects passed, about 3 hours. I was also prescribed Ondansetron to take together with it for nausea and vomiting That seems to work fine by itself. Perhaps I didn't need the first.

Quiets the Stomach
My stomach moves a makes continuous noises especially after eating. I take one of the pills and it stops within minutes. I have been taking them morning and night, but have just started taking at noon as well. I have also noticed a reduction in stomach cramps since I have started these. These pills are not shaped properly for easy taking. I usually have to have a thick liquid like milk or something. I can take with water, but you do feel it going down the throat.
