 3  IBS(C) pain Very tired and frequent urination the first week, dry mouth, very vivid dreams, helped with menstrual cramps I think. I started taking it for IBS(C) and it works but depending on what I eat sometimes I'll take it 3 times a day instead of 2. I also have a lower dose so I'm thinking of having it raised. F 24 2 months

 5  diarrhea, crippling stomach cramps every morning Tired, but may be due to other things. Constipation, so I lower the dose if necessary. I used to wake up every morning with extremely painful cramps. Now, taking one or 2 of these in the middle of the night prevents the extremely painful cramps that I had every day when I woke up in the morning. It is a miracle drug. This drug is both preventative, and effective during an attack. Thank you whoever invented it!!!! No more fear about what will happen in the morning when I wake up!!!!!! F 60 6 weeks

 1  IBS I had the worst pain one could ever imagine. I take Cymbalta for Fibromyalgia. After 3 days had to quit it or would have lived at the ER for pain management. Took two days to get it out of my system. The drug may be ok for someone not on Cymbalta by my experience was horrible. F 3 days

 5  Stomach cramps due to gasses Sometimes a little sleepe. I take this medicine because I have a slow digestive process. For that reason I suffer from stomach cramps due to high level of gasses. This medicine work really fast on me. I love it. The best part is that I don not have any side effect other than sometimes I bit sleepe. F 33 1 years

 4  IBS Extreme cloudiness/dizziness. I can't take this medicine during the day because I become so out of it. But when the stomach cramps are really bad, this medicine works wonders. I just need to be able to lay down! Definitely helped the stomach cramps. I only take it when nothing else is working though since it makes me so foggy. F 29 2 months

 5  Gastritis Intense Graphic Nightmares (I could beat Stephen King if I wrote this stuff down), Drowsiness. With all that said this drug if the only drug that works for me. The PPI and H2 blocker drugs did absolutely nothing but aggrevate my stomach and made things only 1000% worse. This Dicyclomine on the other hand is akin to a magical pill for me and probably saved my life! I couldn't eat for months if it wasn't for this drug! God bless the creators!!!!! M 32 1 months

 5  IBS None that aren't highly manageable. I take as needed. Always have one with me. Over the years I have learned what will trigger an attack or how I feel prior to an attack and will take one to shut down the response. M 64 20 years

 4  IBS W/ diarrhea dry mouth, dizziness, faster heartbeat, a little nervousness, but overall I feel much, much better than I have in a long time. I have had IBS for the last 20 years and never in that period of time has any thing helped quite so much. I now do not have to worry about having to run to the restroom and stay there for hours. I can actually leave my house and go to work or social gatherings without terrible fear. F 31 7 days

DICYCLOMINE HCL  (DICYCLOMINE HYDROCHLORIDE):  Dicyclomine is used to treat a certain type of intestinal problem called irritable bowel syndrome. It helps to reduce the symptoms of stomach and intestinal cramping. This medication works by slowing the natural movements of the gut and by relaxing the muscles in the stomach and intestines. Dicyclomine belongs to a class of drugs known as anticholinergics/antispasmodics. This medication must not be used in children younger than 6 months old because of the risk of serious side effects.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
