What Is the Medical Treatment For Mild Abdominal Pain Due To Diverticular Disease?
There are some medications that can treat mild symptoms such as abdominal pain due to muscle spasm. Antispasmodic drugs include:
- chlordiazepoxide (Librax)
- dicyclomine (Bentyl)
- hyoscyamine (Levsin)
- atropine, scopolamine, phenobarbital, hyoscyamine (Donnatal)
- diphenoxylate and atropine (Lomotil)
In the past doctors advised patients to avoid corn, nuts, and seeds they thought might become lodged in one of the diverticula and cause complications, however, there is no evidence these foods cause any particular problems. Consult your doctor if you have concerns.
