Many Celiacs seem to have a similar problem with IBS. For me personally I had these LOUD intestinal noises that embarrassed me to no end. FINALLY I latched on to the medicine hyoscyamine. Hyoscyamine is a antispasmodic which regulates the rhythms of the intestines. But of course my happiness was short lived when lately hyoscyamine was on "back order" All the local drug stores were running out of supplies. When I called the manufacturer they responded. "Eventually it looks like we will make them more available but that might take a couple of months" Upon further inquirery I found out that the FDA is giving "Grand fathered" in drugs some pressure...I guess the FDA wants Ethex to pony up some cash so the FDA can test and "officially recommend" the drug to the masses. To be honest I'm not sure about that fact one way or the other. Anyway, it seems now that a new product called Hyomax is virtually the same as hyoscyamine!! My pharmacist said it has the same chemical makeup except some additives that allow it to be consumed sublingually or swallowed or both. I really am trying to keep this community up to date with this wonderful drug. Anyone who suffered with that huge embarrassment knows what I'm talking about..

Thanks
Jay
