have diverticulitis and bowel adhesions - drug advice ?

Has anyone ever taken the drug Hyoscyamine SR for bowel problems? I have attacks of diverticulitis every so often and just found out that I have adhesions on part of my bowels from a hysterectomy that I had years ago. This drug was prescribed and I was wondering if anyone had any success or problems with it?

Thank you for asking at ehealthforum

I read your question and i understand your concern. It is an antispasmodic and prescribex less common these days due to other safer antispasmodics available now. It has some black box warning side effects and not approved by FDA any more.

I hope it helps. Please talk to your local health care provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education purposes and cant be alternative to actual medical consult .
