  1. Prescription Medications
    I just started taking Bentyl today to try to control the bowel urgency I feel when I'm commuting to and from work. However, within 2-3 hours of taking one 10mg capsule, I started to feel nauseated and had loose stools. Felt fuzzy-headed for a bit later but that didn't bother me as much as the...
  2. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    It's either I was in more pain without some of these meds or confused/lacking concentration with less pain: http://www.healthcommunities.com/digestive-disorders/anticholinergic-side-effects_jhmwp.shtml
  3. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I had been taking one Bentyl and two Imodium before going to work at about 11:30 a.m. because I would frequently get severe cramping and diarrhea around 1:00 or 2:00 p.m. As I don't work every day, I only took them on the days I work - about 4 days on average. It had been working well until a...
  4. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi all - This is my first post. I've read here for several years and have taken some tips - calcium had some benefits - but I've finally had enough and am desperately seeking advice (and I need a little space to vent to some people who would understand). I'm working under the assumption that...
  5. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    After having diarrhea three or four times a day for about four weeks, I tried Caltrate Plus, 2 or 3 a day. For two days, I finally got normal. But then the diarrhea started to sneak back on, and now, it's back full force. What confuses me is that while taking the Caltrate Plus, I'm also on...

    So dicyclomine helps somewhat with my IBS pain but it leaves my throat and mouth totally parched. Barring drinking water, does anyone have any tips to combat this? Naturally I don't want to take something that might exacerbate my IBS too. Thanks, Pete

  9. General Discussion
    Hi, for some reason Bentyl (which has been helping with the cramping somewhat) is now triggering strong acid reflux. Is there anyone out there who gets this and uses Bentyl + Antacid (e.g. Zantac, PPI) regularly? I'm asking my GI Doc but wanted to hear of someone else's experiences. Thanks...
  10. General Discussion
    Hi, I've not seen any studies on Bentyl's efficacy after 3, 6, 12, 24 months. I haven't even seen anything referring to a potential cumulative effect or a potential poop-out effect. All I'm able to tell is that it targets and stays in your gut and when you poop it out, it's gone. No...

  12. Prescription Medications
    I was diagnosed with IBS, gastritis and acid reflux back in January of this year. Doctors have me on two Prilosec, two Librax, probiotic and benefiber. At first I thought the Librax helped a lot, but for the past month I have been going through an unpleasant cycle. I'll go 1-2 days of...

    Hi everyone, I was prescribed Bentyl 20mg to help with painful stomach aches. I don't get the stomach aches everyday, so I usually only take a pill when I need to. However, I've been reading online that many people take Bentyl up to 4 times a day. Am I supposed to be taking Bentyl like that or...
  14. Working and Careers
    Good afternoon all. I am new to the forum. I was in a motor vehicle accident on the highway last January, a little over one year ago now. I was rear-ended by a van going approximately 60 mph and had three points of impact as I was stopped in the traffic jam. Ever since, I have been on a slew...
  15. Constipation Prescription Medications
    I just saw a GI specialist yesterday and he prescribed Bentyl for me. I really don't like to take medication, and I'm very concerned about potential side effects, but I'm in a lot of discomfort so I decided to try it. What are your experiences with Bentyl?
  16. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I have been taking Bentyl 10mg 3 times a day before meals for about a week. I am still having some loose stools. Has anyone used Bentyl? Should I add fiber supplements to my diet and if so what kind? There are so many to choose from I am overwhelmed. I also suffer from anxiety and depression...
  17. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I am a 31 year old female who has IBS. I was officially diagnosed a few days ago. I have had problems for many years, but over the past 6 months my flare ups were more frequent and harder to control. I know that the cause is mainly stress, anxiety, and depression because I have been having a...
