Bentyl in an antispasmodic and should be used with caution in severe ulcerative colitis. In large doses Bentyl can suppress intestinal motility to the point of producing a paralytic ileus which may result in a serious condtion called toxic megacolon.
It could be worth telling the doctor that you are concerned because of the packet information.
Bentyl is unrelated to sulpha and is not a concern.
