Hi...dicyclomine is amazing for me....the brand name is Bentylol in Canada, Bentyl in the US. I started with 10mg (which I would suggest because you can double it if necessary)..but have graduated to the 20mg in the last 5 years.
It will relax your eyesignt a bit...
Are you still using the rectal meds? (you could make a signature with the meds you're on and where in the colon your UC is just so that one doesn't keep asking the same questions).
I hate those spasms, but they truly tell me I'm flaring.
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....zymactive 3 - 5x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
