"dicyclomine 10 mg"
I have had intestinal gas for some time: asked my primary care doctor whether there was something simple I could take as I had read that over-the counter meds were not safe. He prescribed dicyclomine 10 mg nightly. The list of side effects sound daunting. What do you recommend? I am quite elderly. ## Hello, Tomyris! How are you? This isn't going to help with gas, as a matter of fact, in other countries, they combine it with an antiflatulent medication to present a medication that helps with more symptoms. This works as a smooth muscle relaxer for the intestines to treat intestinal hypermotility and IBS. Unless you have some medical condition or are on medications that causes them to be contraindicated, over the counter products, such as Simethicone, are generally considered safe. It...

cyclopam & weight gain
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!

Pl reply. ## Dysmen contains the active ingredients Mefenamic Acid and Dicyclomine, in such cases it is used to treat the pain and cramping that can be associated with the menstrual cycle. However, no, it has no effect on your body's hormones, so it shouldn't have any effect on your ability to get pregnant and can be used by men or women of any age, as long as their doctor has not advised them not to use it.

Any alternative to leave Spasmo Proxyvon
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...

Nitrofuran Monohyd Macro100mg
I am on day 3 OF NITROFURAN MONOHYD MACRO 100MG 100 mg for urinary track infection every 12hrs, I have problems with my stomach and have been prescribed DICYCLOMINE 10MG/5ML. (1/2 hr before meals) Is safe to take while taking NUTRIFURAN? ## Hi Virnia, Based on my research, there are no drug interactions listed between Nitrofurantoin and Dicyclomine. So just going off that information alone, I don't think there should be any problems using the two together (outside of each medication's own general side effects). However, if you still have any reservations about taking them, it may be best to call your doctor up and verify that it's ok with him as well. Was it the same doctor who prescribed you the Nitrofurantoin, that also give you the script for Dicyclomine?

dicyclomine gluten ingredients
Does dicyclomine by Actavis Pharmaceuticals (generic Bentyl) 20 mg tablets contain gluten or gluten in inert ingredients? It was prescribed to me for the pain & spasms from EATING gluten. I have Celiac's Disease, but many times doctors have prescribed for for my Celiac Disease pain drugs that CONTAIN GLUTEN !! ## Hello, Tutu! How are you? What are the markings on it? The manufacturer listed on the pharmacy label is sometimes just a licensed distributor, so I cannot check the ingredients with this information to be certain of which company made it. Thank you!

Use Of Spasmo Proxyvon for pain in Prostate glands
Can Spasmo Proxyvon be used for pain relief in Prostate area for a man of 47 yrs age? ## Spasmo Proxyvon contains: dicyclomine hydrochloride 10 mg + acetaminophen 400 mg + propoxyphene napsylate 100 mg. The combination of these creates a very mild narcotic pain killer. If you do have pain in the prostate area, I would honestly consider diagnosing the underlying cause of this inflammation/pain to better decide how to treat it instead of covering up the pain temporarily. ## substitute for spamo proxyvon or other same kind of medicines.
