I have been using this for about a week and it has been such a good experience! It helps the cramping so that I can go places without being in HORRIBLE PAIN. The only thing I would mark it down in ease of use is that you have to take it a half hour-hour before you eat which is kind of annoying. But that is a small price to pay for some relief.

Doctor prescribed this medication after months of abdominal pain, diarrhea, and nausea. I have allergic colitis and IBS. This medication eased the pain for a day. They next day I took it, I started having really dry mouth, shakes, dizziness, muscle tightness, chest pains, headache, more nausea, loss of appetite, memory declined and depth perception was WAY off. Doctor said this was side effects but should go away, they did not, they got worse. Helped for very short period, but I would rather have pain than not be able to function.

I have been treated in my home country (France) for the past 8 years for severe abdominal/stomach pain. They took my appendice out, then my gall bladder, then they diagnosed me with diverticulosis saying they had to take about 1foot and 1/2 of intestine out, etc. stones, etc. I arrived in the US over a year ago and was twice in ER with excruciating pains. They did a colonoscopy and finally my american gastro-anterologist diagnosed IBS (with my help as I had been reading on the Internet and suggested it to him.) He give me Dicyclomine 10mg and I have only taken it a few times in case I needed it and I must say this is a miracle drug for me. It is now known that our intestine is our second brain since it has as much or more serotonin, dopamine, etc as the brain has. And in case of emotions, anger, frustration, etc. , intestines are the first to react. Today, I was angry, frustrated, etc. about a work issue. I took one pill and in minutes I was as quiet as a lamb. Fantastic!

Although this medication stops my diarrhea, I have found that about 6-7 hours after taking, I have been subjected to severe vomiting, sweats & dizziness.

I tried this yrs ago and it didn't work. So I was placed on 30 mg codeine and it worked well, then it started not to work so they upped the does to 60 mg of codeine. Now its not working as good as it did before. So I tried lomotil again and it seems like its working but I've also been on humira for the past yr for my crohns disease....
