Bentyl is an oral medication made up of dicyclomine, which is an anticholinergics/antispasmodics. Bentyl is usually blue, but can come in other colors if you buy a generic version. We carry the brand name Bentyl in 20mg doses.
Bentyl is used most commonly used for a condition called irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). People who have irritable bowel syndrome often experience abdominal pain and cramping, excess gas and bloating, and sudden, urgent needs to urinate/defecate. These are just some of the symptoms seen in IBS.
The dicyclomine in Bentyl works to help IBS by relaxing the muscles in the stomach and intestines and slowing down the natural movement that occurs in your gut.
