Does Levsin interfere with the interstitial cystitis medication?

I have been undergoing testing to determine if I have Crohns Disease. I have had a colonoscopy and a pill cam. The colonoscopy revealed irritation so the Dr. took biopsies and is leaning toward Crohns Diagnosis. Went ahead and did the pill cam on Monday and today has not been a good gut day so Dr. has called in Levisin for me to pick up this afternoon. I have Interstitial Cystitis and am on prescribed daily medication for that at this time to keep it in remission so I just want to be sure that Levision will not counteract my IC meds...

Hello,

IC treatment protocols may also include lots of other medicines such as alpha-blockers (Flomax), amphetamines, anti-seizure meds (Neurontin), histamine blockers (Tagamet, Zantac, Pepcid), leukotriene inhibitors, prostaglandins (NSAIDS, ibuprofen), urinary antacids (potassium or sodium citrate, tricitrates).

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Esmeralda Sera, Oncologist
