Is Dicyclomine used for period pain?

Dr. Mayank Yadav MBBS, General Physician

Yes, Dicyclomine when used in combination with mefanamic acid can be used for the effective management of period pain or dysmenorrhea. Dysmenorrhea results from the excessive release of prostaglandins which decrease uterine blood flow, increase uterine contractions and also cause peripheral nerve hypersensitivity leading to the development of pain. Period pain can severely affect a person's quality of life. It can be prevented and managed by taking calcium and magnesium supplements as they help in muscle relaxation, cutting down on coffee, using a heating pad, taking light meals, taking herbal tea, eating a low fat diet, massaging with essential oils, practicing acupuncture and doing some mild physical activity.
