My Doctor prescribed Levsin/SL (Hyoscyamine) for my IBS (cramping & D). The medication seems to help reduce the symptoms but I still have problems when I'm out in public. I feel most of my IBS problems are caused by anxiety when I'm in public or in an unfamiliar place. Are there any anti-anxiety medications I can take with the Levsin? What about breathing exercises or other types of psychological therapy? Thanks for your help.

Try kava kava...it takes about a week to kick in, but it helps anxiety...at least for me.
