Can I take Biaxin and Buscopan together?

Buscopan is a form of hyoscine (butylbromide) made in Germany and available in many countries throughout the world. It is a similar product scopolamine (l-hyoscine), an alkoloid found in belladonna. Buscopan is not approved by the FDA in the United States. It also appears to be similar to hyoscyamine (Levsin), which is an American product. They are both indicated for the same conditions.

There are no direct drug interactions between Biaxin (clarithromycin) and hyoscyamine or scopolamine. I would surmise that this would hold true for Buscopan also. Take the Biaxin as prescribed until finished. Use the Buscopan as needed.
