Hi, my name is Dave. I am a 23 year old male currently prescribed to IC Hyoscyamine .375MG. I have been taking these pills since October. I find that they have been fairly effective in relieving my problems, but lately I have found myself back to my old scenario. Immediately (within 15 mins) of eating meals I find myself having very bad stomach pains (usually lower stomach) followed by extreme diarrhea. I usually have about 4 bouts of diarrhea before I can finally get back to my life. It's extremely embarrassing and stressful. Over the summer I finally visited a Gastroenterologist where I went through numerous exams: (Barium X-Rays, Bloodwork, Colonoscopy). It was determined that I just had an overactive intenstines (The barium had passed into my lower bowel within the 20 min. waiting period at my Barium X-Ray) and that the prescribed medicine would cure my symptoms. My symptoms are back in full effect (Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and again today, Saturday) I have had the same stomach pain/diarrhea happen immediately after dinner. PLEASE, if you can lend some insight on what might be wrong I am desperate. Could it possibly be just a case of needing a higher dosage? Or possible misdiagnosis? Please help me, I am too young to be living my life in fear of eating!! Thank you so much!

*Also, during my Barium X-Ray, the administrating specialist told me I had pretty sever reflux, but it was never treated. Could this be a cause of my stomach pain/diarrhea bouts? PLEASE help, I'm desperate!
