Clidinium bromide is an anticholinergic (specifically a muscarinic antagonist) medication.[1] It may help symptoms of cramping and abdominal pain by slowing the intestines.

In the United States it is only commercially available in combination with chlordiazepoxide (a benzodiazepine) as chlordiazepoxide/clidinium.[2]

Mechanism of action

Clidinium inhibits muscarinic acetylcholine receptors on smooth muscles, secretory glands, and in the central nervous system to relax smooth muscle and decrease biliary tract secretions.[3]
