Drug Interactions With Dicyclomine
More Information on Interactions With Dicyclomine
The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when dicyclomine is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitor Medications
Taking dicyclomine with an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor can make both medications less effective. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely and adjust your dose of these medications to prevent interactions from occurring.
Do not take antacids and dicyclomine at the same time, as antacids may interfere with the absorption of dicyclomine.
Combining an anticholinergic medication with dicyclomine (which is also an anticholinergic medication) can increase your risk of side effects of dicyclomine, such as dry mouth, constipation, dry eyes, or difficulty passing urine.
Dicyclomine may make metoclopramide less effective. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
Dicyclomine may cause increased eye pressure, possibly making glaucoma medications less effective. People with glaucoma should not take dicyclomine.
Both pramlintide and anticholinergic medications (including dicyclomine) can slow down the movement of food through the digestive tract. Therefore, taking them together can increase the risk of constipation or nausea. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining these medications.
Combining a tricyclic antidepressant with dicyclomine may increase your risk of side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
