How Dicyclomine + Mefenamic Acid works

Dicyclomine comes into the anticholinergic agent category. It relaxes the stomach and intestinal muscles (intestine). It relieves cramps, pain, bloating, and discomfort by stopping rapid muscular contractions (spasms). Mefenamic Acid comes into the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) category. It acts by inhibiting the production of certain chemical messengers, such as prostaglandins (pain receptors), which are responsible for causing pain and inflammation (redness and swelling). Together, they ease the pain of menstrual cramps and gas.
