i've taken dycyclomine as needed for years.. however, i use it to avoid the cramps and D that come with being anxious/nervous, and i dont take it all the time. so when i need it, it works.
i used to also take immodium at least once a week (that would keep me 'normal' for most of the week)
but honestly, the only thing that's made me feel normal is vitamin D and a low dose of elavil. my doc tested me for Vitamin D, and i was crazy low. so i started supplements for those. she also put me on a super low dose of elavil (25mg) a day. Now normally Elavil is an antidepressant - but it's prescribed in much higher doses. lower doses are used for pain maintenance, like mine. What i've found is it took the edge off my anxiety - which always led to an attach, and it has a C side effect. i'm not nervous anymore to go out, and i can finally be a little more spontaneous. it's honestly like 'magic'. i've been on both for about 2 years, and i hope it lasts. talk to your doctor, see what they think. it honestly cant hurt to try - i suffered for 20 years and was ready to try anything!! how do i know both are working? if i miss either one a few days in a row, i feel it.
