Dicicloverina review

Dicicloverina is a medication used to treat stomach and intestinal disorders, including Irritable Bowl Syndrome colic spasms, diverticulosis and bladder spasms. It reduces the contractions of the muscles in the gastrointestinal tract, especially the gut and the stomach. It also reduces the stomach acid being produced to relieve stress from the gastrointestinal tract.

Medications interact in different ways. Sometimes when two different medications are taken together they counteract each other or produce negative effects. Before taking Dicicloverina be sure to tell your physician if you are taking any of these medications: antacids, antidepressants, antihistamines, diet pills, asthma medicine, wound relievers (such as Demerol), monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors, amitriptyline also known as Elavil, and doxepin more commonly known as Adapin or Sinequan. To be safe, disclose all the medication that you are taking to your treating physician. Some medications actually counter the effects of Dicicloverina. Cisapride like the medication Propulsid or Reglan can reverse the effects of Dicicloverina, when taken together the body is actually stimulated to be more active and the stomach is tenser and tighter.

Another precaution that all affected roles should take before taking a new medication is to disclose all previous diseases to the physician. In this case the medication Dicicloverina affects the stomach so affected roles should tell the physician about any recent operations or problems with the stomach. Also inform your physician if you have had glaucoma, have difficulty urinating, an enlarged prostate, hyperthyroidism, liver or kidney disease, and heart disease. All this entropy will help your physician make the best decisions he can for your unique case.

Remember that this medication causes drowsiness in most people, so affected roles being treated by it should not operate heavy machinery or drive. It might be dangerous for them and for others. Taking this medication as well as other medications that cause sleepiness, like anti histamines or the anti-anxiety medications (Valium, Ativan, Xanax) can increase the level of sleepiness. Patients taking both kinds of medications should watch out for that double effect. Also note that Dicylomine prevents the body from cooling off by sweating, so in various hot temperatures people might be more prone to heat stroke and fever if they are taking this medication.

Some side effects are: stomach ache, emesis, costiveness, dizziness, weakness, vision problems, loss of appetite, bloating, urination problems and gas problems. These side effects are harmless and easily manageable. However, there are some side effects that are early warning signs for an allergic reaction to the medication. These are: confusion, hallucination (very rare cases), unexplained and radical mood swings, fainting, rashes, swelling, and itching. If any of these symptoms arise, go to the physician immediately.

Dicicloverina is usually marketed under the name Bentyl and it comes as a tablet and syrup. The tablets range from 10mg – 20mg. Patients usually start out taking 20mg four times a day but the physician might increase the dose as time goes by. This medication works best when it is taken at the same time everyday.
