Dicyclomine hydrochloride is a medication used to treat symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), including abdominal pain and cramping. It belongs to a class of drugs known as anticholinergic agents.

Irritable bowel syndrome is a common gastrointestinal disorder characterized by abdominal discomfort or pain, along with changes in bowel habits such as diarrhea or constipation. Dicyclomine hydrochloride works by relaxing the smooth muscles in the gastrointestinal tract, which helps to reduce spasms and relieve symptoms associated with IBS.
