Dicyclomine is generic for Bently, which is an antispasmodic. It should help decrease your cramping, which in turn, might help with D (not always though, it could just help the pain associated with cramps/spasms).
As you've already experienced, Imodium can be extremely constipating. I found the extra strength pills to work too well... Like Keri, I take 1/2 of 1 pill when I feel the D come on (or for preventative measures). Recently I discovered the normal strength chewables that are significantly less effective... I'm able to chew a full pill with little to moderate effects.
