For Irritable Bowel Syndrome: “Just started so far for PI-IBS diarrhea, still having 8-10 diarrhea bowel moments per day. Side effects so far are urinary retention, dry mouth, and sinus cavities and nose are dry as a bone. Basically still have diarrhea with more problems”

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome: “I have been taking this drug for the past 8 years, and it has absolutely changed my life. I developed IBS-D and lactose intolerance after a horrible ovarian cyst that burst. My anxiety was through the roof and I was afraid to leave my apartment. This drug keeps my symptoms in check! I take 2.5mg a day (half a pill). I take a full dose if I have a bad day, but try to keep it to a minimum since it does cause dry mouth. Only downside is that this drug is expensive, $50 a month for me. Insurance companies want you to take cheaper alternatives, none of which worked for me like this one does.”

Pamine (methscopolamine) for Dumping Syndrome: “Pamine has been a God send for me. I changed gastroenterologists because for 5 1/2 years I suffered with not being able to eat a regular meal without problems. I was thrown into "dumping syndrome" after I had my gallbladder taken out. Avoiding liquids during a meal helped, but not much. With Pamine I can eat regular meals again and enjoy life again. I was borderline fecal incontinent, and stayed home much of the time. This medicine combined with cholestyramine, has given me back my life...literally. The only drawback is some constipation, and then my new Dr. has told me to cut back the Pamine to 1 daily. Thank goodness I changed Dr's.”

Pamine Forte (methscopolamine) for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: “After having lower stomach cramps without diarrhea for two days, I started taking this medicine morning. It has stopped the cramps and I have not had any known side effect as of yet. I took this medicine two years ago for a bad stomach flu and it saved me from laying rolled up in a ball in bed. Every adult should keep some of this medicine in their home and carry it when you travel. Thanks you for the relief!”

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome: “I have been on this medicine for the last 8 months and it's been the first time that I feel human. It does stop the symptoms 100%, but I'd say more like 80% which is more than anything else has done. I have some urinary retention issues, so end up peeing more often, but it's worth the peace of mind.”

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome: “I have IBS which seems to hit when I’m under stress, but, may also occur when I’m dehydrated. I will have diarrhea and a severe pain in the middle of my intestine (under my belly button) which has caused me to pass out on more than one occasion. I take a methscopolamine pill and My IBS symptoms calm down. The side effect of dry mouth is really awful - but better than the alternative.”
