Can the pill with the md6 on it be taken for menstrual cramps ## Hello, Queen! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 20mgs of Dicyclomine. As listed by the FDA, this medication is usually used to treat irritable bowel, it can also help with stomach spasms, so it may help some with cramping, but shouldn't be taken, unless your doctor has prescribed it for such. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and blurred vision. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you for the information now tell me what will help with the menstrual cramps i have a very high tolerence and nothing OTC will help i don't want to keep taking narcotics just to relieve the my pain ## Am not pregnant but my...

cyclopam & weight gain
2 Replies RSS
cyclopam using really leads to weight gain?? ## Hi Kimmy, From what I could gather, Cyclopam contains the active ingredients Dicyclomine 20mg + Paracetamol 500mg. As far as weight gain is concerned, neither ingredient appears to list that as a possible side effect. However Dicyclomine on the other hand does list "gas or bloating" on the webpage for the US National Library of Medicine. Would you describe your weight gain as a feeling of fullness in the belly? If so, perhaps some digestive enzymes and probiotics may help alleviate those symptoms. I hope this helps! ## I have been on liness dicyclomine and promethazine and have gained a lot of weight is this common?

Can I take the to medications together ## Hello, Kaitlyn! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed, but it's always best to double check such information to be sure. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Naproxen as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. And the side effects of Dicyclomine may possibly include drowsiness, weakness, decrease in urination and stomach pain. Is there anything else I can help with?

Any alternative to leave Spasmo Proxyvon
6 Replies RSS
I have been using Spasmo Proxyvon from two years and now i want leave it but due to it's side effect i am unable to do so. Therefore i would be grateful if any one has the other alternative. ## Spasmo Proxyvon contains the active ingredients Dicyclomine, Acetaminophen and Propoxyphene, and this last one is a mild narcotic and can be addicting. It has been pulled from the market in most countries, due to the risk it causes of cardiac dangers. However, due to that and the fact that you have been taking it for so long, your best chance for stopping this medication is probably to seek medical assistance from a doctor. Learn more Propoxyphene information here. Have you tried tapering off of it? ## hi sir i m very sceard and my muscles are pain regurlarly i take 10to12 spasmo proxyvon pil...

How Long Will Dicyclomine Hcl Remain Usable Past Expiration Date
4 Replies RSS
how long will dicyclomine hcl remaine usable past expiration date ## Once a medication has expired, it is best to just dispose of it properly. There is no information available to let you know how long it still remains viable and effective past its expiration. The available data for when it expires is just derived from data that only shows the maximum time range for which effectiveness can be guaranteed in regular storage conditions. They are not required to do further testing beyond that and, since they want to see more of any given medication, it wouldn't actually make sense for them to do so. I'm sorry that I don't have a better answer for you. However, once it is expired, it starts to lose effectiveness and should be replaced with new product. Are there any other questio...
