View Full Version : dicyclomine-abdomen discomfort

07-22-2002, 01:24 PM
I have been having cramping and discomfort in my stomach and lower abdomen for about 3 months. Went to gastro dr. and he gave me Dicyclomine. I also had a colonoscopy and everything was normal. Harry suggested I start taking Probiotic which I do now. I wonder if anyone has any information about Dicyclomine. I've only taken 2 pills and so far it has not helped with my cramping. Gastro Dr. did not give me a diagnosis, but just told me to go to my GP.

Hi. I was put on Bentyl awhile ago for chronic diarrhea - it didn't help the diarrhea, but did help the cramping. However, it also made me drowsy and have a dry mouth, so I decided it wasn't really working for me. Some people have had good luck with it. But it didn't really help me at all.

When I first went to my doctor he told me to try taking Dicyclomine to help calm my stomache. It did not work that great for me. Made me drousy and I couldn't sleep. Felt a little like anxiety or something. Try drinking pepperment tea, it seems to help. You can also start taking Probitica or Acidophilus pills to help put "good" bacteria into your stomache.

Hope this helps, Bethany
