 5  IBS mostly D Subtle calming sensation, a little dry mouth but that went away. I get strong spasms which seize up my colon (left side) for a long time and hurt. I would get chills and shakes. Ended up in ER a few times, had colonoscopies, biopsies, CT and a myriad of tests, which revealed nothing. Still don't know why it happens, but Bentyl reliably releases the cramps within 20-30 minutes. I developed agoraphobia from IBS and that seems to be going away esp since I started taking it multiple times/day (pre-emptively and as needed). No major side effects. I also take 10 mg Amitriptylene for pain and to help slow things down. Also a little psyllium. Was on daily Imodium but have been able to stop that unless it's a very bad D flareup. But they are happening less and less (fingers crossed). Hoping I can start working again now. Finally. Highly recommend! I use 10-20 mg at a time. M 56 4 years

 1  IBS Makes me disoriented, useless, makes you feel down and out of touch from reality. Almost 100% useless, makes me feel my IBS through my whole body. I believe i will never take it again as long as I lived. I was diagnosed with IBS since 2006, Used Bentyl multiple times. Did not work for me ..then I managed by IBS through the last 13 years..and now I am back at it. Thought of trying it again maybe it would Be different. Does not work believe me I have had a long experience with IBS ..this stuff is useless Just have pure ginger (no additives)..boil it with water and sip it hot it will relieve and alleviate your symptoms ..try a bit of pure honey with it as ginger can have a strong taste , watch what you eat and excercise God willing it will help M 35 1 months

 5  IBS I only take it occasionally and have noticed that sometimes I feel a little weepy but not enough to be a problem. I must take with food. I only take it when the cramps become unbearable. I find it to be a great tool in managing my IBS. I only take it when I need it for cramps and it was never prescribed to me as something to take every day. F 67 30 years

 1  Kidney stone Abdominal pain and swelling, blurry vision,swelling and red feet, dizziness and nausea. Read side effects and feel fortunate didn't take it longer. Should be illegal. Dangerous drug for the healthy, how much more for the unhealthy. Don't take this drug. Besides if it's for IBS why does it make the stomach swell and painful. It doesn't even work for its initial intended use. F 40 4 days
