Been 6 weeks of fighting Optumrx to fill my Dicyclomine Rx. Dr has faxed Rx locally, then 3 different rx's to mail order. They finally replied in my ap after 6 weeks that it's been cancelled.
Called OPTUM, finally got to pharmacist who said its contraindicated. On this forum some have said it could cause mega colon.
Sure, in theory but it ain't, I take (6) 10 MG caps/day (2 per meal) now. Was 2 addl at bedtime when I was peaking with 12-16 BMs/ day. Now about
6/day. My stool is still like 4 to 6 Bristol scale with no effort/strain. Mega colon implies a static colon with distension. My wife has GP and I know what distension is... I massage her bowels every day to promote movement.
Anyway, it's pure insanity! For over 2 yrs, express Rx never had a problem. Employer switched Jan 01 to OPTUM & its been a pure nightmare!
