Hi doctor,

I feel chest pain and palpitations when I take tablet Cyclopam? Is tablet Cyclopam dangerous for me?

#

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Cyclopam (Dicyclomine) is the drug that blocks muscarinic receptors in the intestine thus relieves the abdominal colic pain.

At the same time, it also blocks muscarinic receptors that are presented in the heart, brain, salivary gland, etc., that are considered as side effects.

So, a person may get heart palpitations, anxiety, etc., and using the drug in less dose for fewer days are preferred. The high dose can even cause cardiovascular collapse and respiratory depression.

If you feel the side effects of this drug, then better to consult the clinician to change the drug or dose. Thank you.
