Hard to treat : Hyoscyamine or Levsin (hyoscyamine) is an anticholinergic that attempts to treat the side effects of IBS, such as cramping and bloating. Treatment of IBS involves dietary modification to reduce certain kinds of fermenting carbs from the diet, increasing fiber intake, and generally eliminating foods that irritate and are not well digested.
