I also use dicyclomine. It won't do much during a bad flare (if you've eaten a particularly bad trigger food, in my case). I tend to take it if I'm feeling relatively good but need to ensure a couple hours of relief (a long car ride, a dinner party, etc.) It makes me feel ever-so-slightly drowsy (not much) and gives me the tiniest bit of cotton mouth.
