  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. General Discussion
    I was talking to my current gastroenterologist today during a follow-up phone appointment. She believes I have IBS-C, though for most of this year I have been having episodes of needing to go urgently, especially when commuting to and from work, to the point where I've worked from home out of...
  3. 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...

    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...
  8. 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...
