I just recently started taking it for IBS and it has helped the cramping but now I feel the spasms. Like twitching often.
Your intestines have to contract in order to move waste through your system and out. Dicyclomine is an anti-spasmodic that helps control the intensity and frequency of these contractions so your system can operate on a more normal basis. You don't want the contractions to stop entirely or you'd end up with a much bigger problem than you have now! As long as it's helping control your symptoms, I wouldn't worry about anything. I've taken it for more than 25 years and it's literally been the difference between me being able to lead a normal life without mapping out every bathroom within a three state radius! Good luck!
