Hi, i have IBS and was prescribed Levsin, has anyone tried it? I have a horrible reaction to liquids other than milk or water, and some foods, just haven't figured out which foods yet, but I need to make a lifestyle change here.
I also seen a wellness coach, he sold me $100 worth of supplements, for my digestive tract. I do not want to be taking 24 pills a day, are any of these worth taking?? i have Multizyme 5700, pancreatrophin, parotid, Cholacol II, B6 Niacinamide...I hope someone can give me some advice!!

Thank you for your question! I will do some research on these supplements, and let you know what I find.

How long have you been using Levsin, and was this prescribed by your GI doctor (or other doctor?). It is important to talk with your doctor BEFORE using any supplements when taking other medications, as there can be harmful drug interactions. If a supplement is strong enough to help you, it is also strong enough to cause harm or drug interactions, so please make sure to get the OK from your doctor first!

I will get back to you soon with more information about drug supplements.
