Frequently asked questions about hyoscyamine

Medically reviewed by:Jessica Swirble, PharmD

Hyoscyamine is a prescription medication used to relieve symptoms of gastrointestinal disorders. It is available under various brand names. Generic versions are also available.

Hyoscyamine belongs to the drug class known as antispasmodics, which are commonly used to manage symptoms of gastrointestinal discomfort.

Please note that you will need a prescription from a licensed healthcare provider to obtain this medication.

Hyoscyamine is primarily prescribed for the management of various gastrointestinal conditions associated with symptoms such as abdominal pain, cramps, and spasms. It helps relieve discomfort caused by these conditions.

Some conditions that may be relieved with hyoscyamine use include:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Peptic ulcers
  • Diverticulitis
  • Bladder spasms
  • Cystitis
  • Pancreatitis

It is also sometimes used to control symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. In addition, it may be prescribed to reduce runny nose, excessive sweating, or excessive saliva production.

Hyoscyamine is classified as an anticholinergic/ antispasmodic medication. These drugs reduce muscle tension in the body, which minimizes uncontrollable spasms and movement. Hyoscyamine relaxes muscles in organs such as the stomach, bladder, intestines, kidney, and gallbladder. This helps prevent painful spasms and cramps caused by gastrointestinal and bladder disorders. It also works to minimize the uncontrollable bladder and intestinal movement that can cause urinary incontinence and irritable bowel syndrome.

In addition to its use as an antispasmodic, hyoscyamine decreases the production of certain fluids in the body. This includes stomach acid, saliva, and sweat. Because of this, it may be prescribed to treat a runny nose or excess saliva production.

While using hyoscyamine, some individuals may experience side effects, although not everyone will.

Mild side effects may include:

  • Dry mouth
  • Blurred vision
  • Drowsiness
  • Dizziness
  • Constipation
  • Nausea
  • Dry skin
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Flushing
  • Sensitivity to light

More serious side effects include:

  • Confusion
  • Mood changes
  • Skin rash
  • Vomiting
  • Difficulty with speech
  • Fast or irregular heartbeat
  • Loss of coordination

Seek medical attention right away if you begin to notice any of these symptoms. These are signs of a serious adverse reaction, and medical treatment is required.

It's important to inform your healthcare provider if you experience any side effects or have concerns about taking this medication.

Before starting treatment with hyoscyamine, inform your healthcare provider about any existing medical conditions, allergies, or other medications you are taking, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, and dietary supplements, as they may interact with hyoscyamine.

You should specifically mention any history of:

  • Glaucoma
  • Heart disease
  • Liver, kidney, or lung disease
  • Urinary or intestinal obstructions
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • High blood pressure

If you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding, consult your healthcare provider before using hyoscyamine to assess potential risks and benefits.

Hyoscyamine can cause drowsiness. Because of this, you should not operate a motor vehicle or heavy machinery until you know how this medication affects you.

Caution should be used when exercising and during hot weather. Hyoscyamine can decrease the amount of sweat your body makes, making you more prone to overheating and heat stroke.

Avoid alcohol while taking hyoscyamine, as it can increase the severity of side effects. Avoid taking antacids within 2 hours of hyoscyamine.

Hyoscyamine is commonly supplied as an oral tablet, extended-release oral tablet, sublingual tablet, or liquid. The specific dosage and form of hyoscyamine ordered by your healthcare provider will depend on your condition, age, and body weight.

Follow your healthcare provider's instructions regarding dosing and other recommendations for taking hyoscyamine. Do not discontinue or alter your dosage without consulting your doctor, as this can affect the medication's effectiveness.

If you miss a dose of hyoscyamine, take it as soon as you can. If it’s nearly time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take your regularly scheduled dose. Do not take a double dose of hyoscyamine.

Store hyoscyamine as directed by your healthcare provider or pharmacist. Proper storage is essential to maintain the medication's effectiveness. Typically, hyoscyamine should be stored at room temperature, away from excessive heat, light, and moisture.

Keep the medication out of the reach of children and ensure that the container is tightly closed.

Hyoscyamine is available by prescription only. A licensed healthcare provider must authorize the use of this medication.
