I have recently been prescribed dicyclomine 20mg every 6 hours

I have recently been prescribed dicyclomine 20mg every 6 hours from my IBS... prior to this I was only taking it one time a day as needed... could this increase cause nausea and stomach pain?, I usually feel fine until a few hours after my mid day dose...

I was prescribed Dicyclomine 20 mg. yesterday for severe ulcertive colitis. I took 20 mg 1 hour before eating dinner at 5 P.M. I woke up at 12 a.m. unable to urinate just a tiny bit and felt like i really need to go bad. I had extreme cotton mouth all night and day. I was able to release my urine fully at 3:15 p.m. today. Is that a common side effect of this drug? Thank you Josh Balazs I am 30 years old and have been in remission for 4 years, YYYY@YYYY

I have been taking Dicyclomine (20 mg) for 20+ years for IBS. It was prescribed to take 3 per day; however I always just took one per day. Never had a problem. When I called in for a refill, my doctor s office called in a refill for 10 mg. In the meantime I received a letter from my insurance company, (Blue Advantage - BC/BS) that this medication would no longer be covered under my plan. They went on to say it was not recommended for older adults, I am 75. I quit taking the medication, Since then I am very dizzy. Could quitting the med cold turkey be causing the dizziness?

I am prescribed ibuprofen 800mg for endometriosis pain. I also have bad stomach issues that are being classified right now as severe IBS. The last time I took motrin 800mg was this morning at 9:45 am. I have been having some IBS issues today and i am prescribed Dicyclomine 10mg for the cramping and stomach contractions. Is it safe for me to take the Dicyclomine now, or do I have to wait?? Thank you
