Formulex review

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

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

Another precaution is to disclose all previous diseases to the physician. This medication affects the stomach so patients should tell their physician about any recent operations or problems with the stomach. Tell your physician if you have had glaucoma, have difficulty urinating, an enlarged prostate, hyperthyroidism, liver or kidney disease, and heart disease. This data will help your physician make the topper decisions for your unique case.

This medication causes drowsiness. Patients taking Formulex should not operate heavy machinery or drive as it can be dangerous for them and for others. Taking this medication along with other medicaments that cause sleepiness, like anti histamines or anti-anxiety medicaments (Valium, Ativan, Xanax) can increase the patient’s level of sleepiness. Patients taking both medicaments need to watch out for the double effect. Dicylomine prevents the body from cooling off by sweating, so in hot temperatures patients might be more prone to heat stroke and fever if they are taking this medication.

Side effects include stomach ache, vomiting, constipation, dizziness, weakness, vision problems, loss of appetite, bloating, urination problems and gas problems. These side effects are easily manageable. Some side effects are early warning signs for an allergic reaction to the medication. These often include confusion, hallucination (very rare cases), unexplained and radical mood swings, fainting, rashes, skin edema, and itching. If you experience any of these symptoms, see your physician immediately.
