Can increase the dos: Levsin (hyoscyamine) could be taken every 6 to 8 hours as needed and you can take it orally or sublingual which is faster acting.If .125mg is not working for you , you can increase the dose to .25mg.Also if you not responding as before need to look for other factors including your stress level and dietary habit.
