Hyoscyamine is used to control symptoms associated with disorders of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. It is indicated for use in the treatment of bladder spasms, peptic ulcer disease, diverticulitis, colic, irritable bowel syndrome, cystitis, and pancreatitis. Hyoscyamine can also be used to treat certain heart conditions, to control the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, rhinitis, and to reduce excess saliva production. Hyoscyamine is an isomer of atropine and is also known as levo-atropine. It exhibits anticholinergic activity and functions as a non-selective, competitive antagonist of muscarinic receptors, inhibiting the parasympathetic activities of acetylcholine on the salivary, bronchial, and sweat glands as well as in the eye, heart, and GI tract. The actions of hyoscyamine result in a reduction in salivary, bronchial, gastric, and sweat gland secretions, mydriasis, cycloplegia, change in heart rate, contraction of the bladder detrusor and GI smooth muscles, and decreased GI motility.
