How Dicon 2 Drop works

Dicon 2 Drop is a combination of two medicines: Dicyclomine and Dimethicone/Polydimethylsiloxane. Dicyclomine is an antispasmodic which works by relaxing the muscles in your stomach and gut (intestine). It stops sudden muscle contractions (spasms), thereby relieving abdominal cramps and pain.
