Dicetel Description

Are you looking for relief from abdominal pain, intestinal discomfort, and bowel disturbances as a result of irritable bowel syndrome? Ask your doctor about a prescription for Dicetel to reduce the painful and embarrassing symptoms of IBS so you can put the worry of always being near a bathroom to rest.

Irritable bowel syndrome does not cause inflammation or infection of the intestinal tract, but your digestive system is not working as it was designed. Your food travels through the digestive tract rapidly, slowly, or a little of each and causes watery stools, infrequent stools, or a combination of both. The sub-groups of IBS are IBS-D (diarrhea), IBS-C (constipation), and IBS-A (alternating).

How Dicetel Reduces Your Symptoms of IBS

The active ingredient in Dicetel is Pinaverium Bromide, an antispasmodic agent that works locally in your digestive tract. When taken as directed, Dicetel inhibits calcium ions from entering into smooth muscle cells. Most of your body’s calcium is stored in your bones but there is a small amount circulating in your blood. About half of the circulating calcium is ionized, which means that it carries an electrical charge which helps it take part in the firing of nerve and muscle cells. This can cause the muscle cells of your digestive tract to contract or tighten which interferes with gastric emptying and transit time. Dicetel relaxes the muscles in your intestinal tract and stomach and reduces IBS symptoms.

Conditions Treated by Dicetel

Irritable bowel syndrome is a chronic functional gastrointestinal disorder and one of the most common conditions seen by gastroenterologists worldwide. The cause of IBS is still relatively unknown and is not associated with Crohn’s disease or colitis due to the lack of inflammation or infection. The layers of muscle that line your intestines are meant to contract and relax in a coordinated rhythm to move food from your stomach through the intestinal tract, and exit your rectum. With IBS, these contractions may be stronger and last longer than normal so your food is forced faster through your intestines, causing gas, bloating, and loose watery stool. If the opposite occurs, the slow trip through the intestines can cause hard, dry stools that are difficult to pass.

Before Dicetel is Prescribed

Ask your doctor if it is safe for you to take Dicetel if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC or Rx drugs you are taking, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements. This allows your doctor to determine if Dicetel is the right medication for you.

Precautions and Proper Use of Dicetel

Swallow Dicetel whole with a glass of water and do not take Dicetel while lying down or before bed to avoid throat irritation. Do not give Dicetel to a child or share it with others, even if their symptoms are similar to the ones you are experiencing. Until you know how Dicetel will affect you, do not attempt to drive, operate machinery, or perform any task that may be considered unsafe if you are not alert or you feel lightheaded.
