Clidinium and Dicyclomine are antispasmodics which work by relaxing the muscles in your stomach and gut (intestine). They stop sudden muscle contractions (spasms).

Questions Related to Clidox

I've been suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome for 4 years. Morning one episode of watery diarrhea after breakfast. I consulted a doctor and he gave me Ramosetron Hydrochloride 5mcg and advised to use half of the Tablet at night before food and I got temporary cure. But after when I stop the Tablet the problem is recurring so I request you to suggest some better remedy for this condition. And can continue with the same Tab I used?. Is it good for a long term use?. Is there any severe side effect with the Tab? Thanking You, PATIENT
