Coliwin R Capsule is a combination of four medicines: Chlordiazepoxide, Clidinium, Dicyclomine and Rabeprazole which treat irritable bowel syndrome. Chlordiazepoxide is a benzodiazepine. It works by increasing the action of a chemical messenger (GABA) which suppresses the abnormal and excessive activity of the nerve cells in the brain. Clidinium and Dicyclomine are antispasmodic medicines which relax the muscles in your stomach and gut (intestine). They stop sudden muscle contractions (spasms). In doing this, They relieve cramps, pain, bloating, and discomfort. Rabeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). It reduces the amount of acid in the stomach which relieves acid-related indigestion and heartburn.
Taking a large amount of alcohol can increase acidity and cause acid reflux in the food pipe causing heartburn. This would decrease the effect of this drug and can aggravate your underlying condition.
