Conditions treated by dicyclomine
The main use of dicyclomine is for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). IBS is a chronic condition that affects the large intestine and causes symptoms such as abdominal pain, cramping, bloating, gas, and changes in bowel habits. Dicyclomine helps to reduce these symptoms by relaxing the muscles in the intestines, thus relieving pain and improving bowel function.
Additionally, dicyclomine may also be prescribed to treat other gastrointestinal conditions such as functional bowel disorders, including spastic colon, colitis, and diverticulitis. It can help alleviate abdominal pain, cramps, and discomfort associated with these conditions.
Furthermore, dicyclomine can be used as an adjunctive therapy in the treatment of peptic ulcers. By reducing the activity of the smooth muscles in the stomach and intestines, dicyclomine helps to relieve the pain and discomfort caused by peptic ulcers.
How does dicyclomine work?
Dicyclomine belongs to a class of medications called anticholinergics. It works by relaxing the muscles in the gut and slowing down the natural movements of the intestines. This helps reduce symptoms of abdominal pain and discomfort associated with IBS.

Drug interactions for dicyclomine
Dicyclomine may interact with the following medications:
- Dicyclomine is an anticholinergic medication, so taking it with other anticholinergic drugs can increase the risk of side effects such as dry mouth, blurred vision, constipation, and urinary retention. Examples of anticholinergic drugs include diphenhydramine, oxybutynin, and tolterodine
- Combining dicyclomine with other medications used to treat gastrointestinal conditions, such as antacids, proton pump inhibitors, or H2 blockers, may reduce dicyclomine’s effectiveness. It is best to separate the administration of these medications by a few hours
- Dicyclomine should not be taken with monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) or within 14 days of stopping MAOIs. This combination can lead to a serious condition called serotonin syndrome, which includes symptoms such as confusion, hallucinations, rapid heartbeat, fever, and seizures
- Certain medications, such as tricyclic antidepressants such as amitriptyline and antipsychotics such as chlorpromazine, can increase the risk of dicyclomine’s side effects. It is important to discuss the use of these medications with your healthcare provider
