For Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "I have experienced most of the side effects and considering I had anorexia nervosa when I was young and still forget to eat for up to 10 days or more. I don't know if I should be taking this??? My doctor knew this but still prescribed it...WHY?!?"

Bentyl (dicyclomine) for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "I took this pill tonight for the first time, almost 3 years in pain every morning I had to wake up an hour earlier just for designated bathroom time, nearly falling sometimes in pain if I couldn't get to a bathroom. Tonight I had a rolling cramp and took it, within minutes it just stopped.. I ate a full meal and I haven't had to run to the bathroom urgency... Hopefully I can handle the simpler side effects"

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "This actually works really well. I just took this because I've been having really bad diarrhea pain but no diarrhea and the second I took this it helped. It actually allowed me to go to the bathroom and made my stomach feel 10 times better than it did."

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "I had been taking this for a year, with no side effects. They made me kinda giggly and high but just recently I've been having terrible side effects. I get dizzy, disoriented, anxiety attacks, insomnia and terrible migraines. I had to be taken off of it immediately when it sent me to the ER with dialted pupils/blurred vision , slow heart rate, low blood pressure and the major disorientation"

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "I actually call these my magic belly pills. I was given the bentyl for IBS-C. BEST THING to happen to my chronic stomach pains. I do get a sedated type of feel from it, but it's completely worth it and its not as sedating as Benadryl is for me, so it's not bad at all. I only take it as needed, but sometimes it's needed around the clock for a few days in a row. It also works better than anything I've tried for menstrual cramps too. This has been a life saver for me. Even though its prescribed for IBS with diarrhea, it relaxes my muscles so that I am able to go. Amazing drug and I would recommend it to anyone suffering with stomach pains."

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "I get horrible cramping in my lower abdomen and my GI suspects I have IBS so she prescribed this to me to take as needed up to twice a day. This is the only stuff that works for me in all honesty. I have tried everything else and this has worked like a charm every time I have needed it."

Bentyl (dicyclomine) for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "Started with a low dose at 10 mg to avoid drowsiness. This was the only option for me after fighting IBS for over 15 years. Works on your first day right away. The only side effect is a little blury vision. I take one dose right before dinner time. The pill regulates the bowel movements like clock work. This pill also helped me with my sleep issues."

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "I take bentyl for IBS and diverticulitis. It works great. Usually starts to work within about half an hour. Side effects for me is drowsiness and blurred vision but I will deal with that in order to reduce pain from IBS/diverticulitis. I would highly recommend it but start it at home or when you have time to sleep off the drowsiness until you get use to it."

Bentyl (dicyclomine) for Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "Was great for first day or so but then struck by horrible side effects. Cramps in my legs so bad I could hardly walk and literally didn't get a wink of sleep at night due to the pain and restless legs. Blurred vision and very bad nausea also. Would advise a low dose at first to see how it goes but beware of side effects."

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "This medication at first can have some strong, sedating side effects, but as long as you hang in there they will diminish. This medication has really helped my life. And I know it will help many others, from the cramping, the constant back and forth to the bathroom, not being able to eat, or eat to much, it just makes you normal again. It took me about 2 weeks to start seeing changes again but you will feel the effects right away. Just stay with it people."

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "I have know been on Dicyclomine (Bentyl) for 3 weeks now and it has its pros and cons. It definitely takes my stomach pains away, even without my pain medication if I don't have them on me. And most of the time it gives me a relaxing feeling as well. But the only down side is the couple side effects is sometimes it will make my nausea worse, so at times I will have to double up on my nausea medication and there has been a couple times were it made my anxiety worse. But I'm hoping these symptoms will fully go away the more my body gets used to it. I was on Librax but the stomach medication in Librax didn't work for me, just the anxiety part of the medication in librax helped, so there was no point in taking it. Thanks Bentyl!"

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome: "I took 1 tablet and within 5 minutes had the calmest bowel in years with very digestive discomfort at all. Only been taking it for 2 days and still trying to find my best dosage and times to the medicine but I feel better than I have in a long,long time. I'm in the UK and have IBS D and had to research the drug before asking my GP to prescribe it. Give it a go and it might help you a lot too."
