Dicyclomine Overview

Dicycloverine, also known as dicyclomine, is a prescription medication that relieves muscle spasms in the gastrointestinal tract through an apparent mechanism of nonselective smooth muscle relaxation, and that presents a range of anticholinergic side effects.

Any alternative to leave Spasmo Proxyvon
9 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...

Why would this drug be used in a weight loss program? ## I honestly can't say, I read over some more information on it just to be certain that I was remembering correctly, but I didn't find anything that made sense for it to be used to aid in weight loss. Learn more Dicyclomine details here. Do you know someone that's using it for that? ## Dicyclomine has been shown to be associated with an increased incidence of anorexia nervosa-like symptoms as a side effect due to the slowing of the peristolsis (locomotion / contractions) of the GI tract. ## It causes the stomach to empty slower which increases the time you feel full. ## Is anyone having severe cramping after u take u. Feel like contrations for real. ## I have been prescribed Dicylomine for spasms this wek,, I have lost w...

Is there a substitute for spasmo proxyvon
2 Replies RSS
Spasmo proxyvon is a medically proved drug. Is there a substitute available? ## Spasmo-Proxyvon contains the active ingredient dicycloverine hydrochloride (also known as dicyclomine). Dicyclomine is used to treat the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, and is in a class of medications called anticholinergics. It is supposed to relieve muscle spasms in the gastrointestinal tract by blocking the activity of a certain natural substance in the body. As far as finding a substitute goes, it would probably be best to look for something within the same drug class of anticholinergics. This way you can at least be sure that the medication is working in a similar fashion. However not all anticholinergics are created equally, so I would always recommend talking with your doctor first about the mo...

Can dicyclomine 20 - watson 795 be used as a muscle relaxer for back pain. What are the side effects ## No, Dicyclomine works specifically on smooth muscles, which are those that you have little control over, that work on their own in response to various stimuli in your body. These are the types of muscle found in your bladder, intestines, blood vessels and etc. Side effects may include: nausea, dry mouth and delirium. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I pulled my intercostal muscle and my doctor prescribed it for that pain and it worked beautiful and muscle is finally healing!! I was hurting for months and thought it was my liver!

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? ## Does macrobid...
