Is there another medication that could substitute for Levsin?

I have been prescribed Levsin extended release for esophageal spasms. I have achalasia & have had a Heller myotomy with Dor fundoplication. My Prescription Drug plan does not have Levsin or it s generic in their formulary * it s expensive - about $3/day for 0.375mg tablet twice daily. Is there another medication that could substitute for Levsin?

Hello,

Levscin is anticholinergic antispasmodic drug. There are many medications that you can use like Buscopan but is better to talk with your doctor.

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

Regards,
Dr. Blerina Pasho, General & Family Physician
