Was taking Dicyclomine and Omeprazole for stomach pain. Stopped taking, and later the same night have stomach flu/diahrea. Coincidence or from meds?
Hard to tell: The doctor who prescribed these drugs needs to diagnose you first before he treats you. Dicyclomine is an antispasmodic, and omeprazole reduces the concentration of stomach acid. Omeprazole can have diarrhea as an adverse effect, but I don't think this is the culprit. How do you know you have "stomach flu?

Regular "softeners" don't help much. Always drink plenty of water and eat veggies with natural fiber. Good luck! ...Read more
