I have suffered with IBS for years (this is the only diagnosis I can get for my condition, which I'm still not convinced it is the correct diagnosis) but recently my Dr. started me on dicyclomine. I have taken my first dose just now. I can find lots of info about all the side effects, but I want to know if anyone has gotten relief from IBS as a result of taking dicyclomine? I have profound swelling in my abdomen nearly every day. Sometimes I wake up and it's "flat" but starts to swell nearly instantly, and other times I wake up and it's already distended and painful. I am praying this medication will give me some relief! Anyone have any personal experiences with this drug? (Good/Bad) Thanks!
I'm 45 had IBS-D for 40 yrs. Past 3 yrs it has just exploded, no pun intended. I'm a male. I haven't any experience with that drug. I feel your bloating pain, I know what it's like. Mine was just a big gas build up, don't know why but it went away and now just have the IBS. The only drug that has helped me is Lotronex.
