Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common disease affecting 10-15% of the adult population. Its causes are unknown, and the symptoms can be very different and include abdominal pain, bloating and flatulence, constipation or diarrhea. Preparations from irritable bowel syndrome can not completely cure the patient, but they can significantly alleviate the symptoms.
Medications from this group have antispasmodic properties, that is, they suppress contractions of the smooth muscles of the intestine. These drugs help alleviate the symptoms of abdominal cramps in irritable bowel syndrome.
This drug directly relaxes the smooth muscles of the intestine, without affecting the production of gastric acid. Its effect begins 1-2 hours after taking and lasts up to 4 hours. Dicyclomine is taken orally, as a rule – 4 times a day before meals and at night.
To prevent the development of side effects, the doctor can first prescribe this remedy in small amounts, and then gradually increase the dose. Antacids reduce the absorption of dicyclomine, so it can not be taken simultaneously with it.
If you take this medicine for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome regularly enough and for a long time, with a sudden discontinuation of its reception, withdrawal can occur, which is manifested by dizziness, sweating and vomiting.
