A book written by clinicians for clinicians that presents a broad view
of the clinical applications of opioids; it covers the pharmacology
of opioids and its clinical application in a wide range of situations
from acute to chronic cancer and non-cancer pain across ages from
paediatric to geriatric populations.
It also covers the socio-historical, ethical, legal and criminal aspects
related to the use of opioids, and includes the limitations of opioids
as well as recommended precautionary measures when prescribing
these drugs. For the busy clinician who has to manage pain either
as a generalist or a specialist, this is a very handy text to keep within

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) affects 1 in 10 Singaporeans and is one of the commonest causes of missing days from work, second only to the common cold! Patients with IBS usually experience abdominal pain or discomfort associated with diarrhoea or constipation; some may alternate between diarrhoea and constipation. As the symptoms of IBS may resemble other conditions such as colitis, diverticular disease, stomach ulcers and even cancer, it is important to consult a doctor to confirm the diagnosis.

For my Mother I ask: I was reading about "Dicyclomine". In the article it mentions both Anticholinergic and Mebeverine. I am confused... Does Dicyclomine have both Anticholinegic and Mebeverine as ingredients? If not, is there a drug with both as ingredients?
