I was given this drug to take since 2010 I have not taken any of it for fare of getting sick from it. Drug name: dicyclomine capsule 10mg
Where in the world would you get the idea its made from limestone and rock. It won't cause heart disease, however if you have heart disease you have to use it with caution because it has some cardiac side effects. I've taken it for periods of time a few times over the year. My one side effect was constipation.
This medicine is used for IBS-irritable bowl syndrome.It is synthsized and has nothing to do with limestone or rock etc.Here are some tips.
1.Eat healthy food and drink warm water in sips.
2.Medicine has no side effect like heart disease.You may feel bloated and some sort of pressure or bumping in heart.
3.Do not take very long.your stomach has to naturally become normal with diet , exercise and stress management.
4. Meditation and Prayers help big way.
5. Try Yoga and acupressure. this has helped me.
6.reduce dosage slowly and DO not take for more than 4 weeks at a stretch.Long term dependance is bad.
7. Take more fruits, roughage so as to be NOT constipated.
i am speaking from experience.thanks
