- Colicky abdominal pain
- Abdominal colic
Antispasmodic and anticholinergic (antimuscarinic) dicycloverine hydrochloride [Bicyclohexyl-]1-carboxylic acid, 2-(diethylammo) ethyl ester, hydrochloride is the chemical name. Dicycloverine helps to alleviate gastrointestinal smooth muscle spasms. Dicycloverine HCl Injectable is a sterile, pyrogen-free intramuscular injection solution (Not For Intravenous Use). It acts on cholinergic (or muscarinic) receptors found on the involuntary muscle of the gut walls. Dicycloverine inhibits some substances generated by the body from interacting with certain receptors by attaching to them. This relaxes the gut muscle, reducing the discomfort of colic caused by contraction and spasm of the gut muscle.
