My kid is crying in the sleep. Looks like it is stomcha pain because he is crying more when pressing his stomach. What to do now? ## Dicyclomine is the active ingredient of Cyclopam. Dicyclomine is used to treat intestinal hypermotility, the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) (also known as spastic colon). Additionally, it relieves muscle spasms and cramping in the gastrointestinal tract and is a smooth muscle relaxant. More details about this drug (including side effects), can be viewed in the link below: It sounds to me like your kid is experiencing some undesirable side effects from this drug; such as deliriant effects, which you can read more about in the link below: If this really becomes a consistent problem (as it sounds like it is) I would highly recommend contacting you...

Just had gallbladder removed and had papillary stenosis which they perform a sphinctoromy. This illness started at the end of July. Gallbladder out 5 weeks ago. Sphinctoromy 1 week ago. I went from 132 to 118 from July till now. How can I gain my weight back? ## Hello, Kay! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems that you've had. Do you have any dietary restrictions, since having the surgery? It will likely just be a matter of time, making sure that you eat good, healthy meals frequently. Rather than just 3 times a day, you may want to eat more often, if your doctor approves. I've found that nuts, like almonds, tend to help me a lot, when my weight drops and my cardiologist highly approves of my eating them, since they have many health benefits. Does anyone else have any a...

How Long Will Dicyclomine Hcl Remain Usable Past Expiration Date
3 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...

"dicyclomine 10 mg"
7 Replies RSS
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
1 Reply 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!

Any alternative to leave Spasmo Proxyvon
5 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.

Nitrofuran Monohyd Macro100mg
1 Reply RSS
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?
