didn't realize intestinal spasms were a form of IBS; child does not have any "bathroom issues," just stomach cramping due to anxiety. first took imeprozol for 30 days & did not work-pain was not acid-related. dicyclomine stops the painful cramping and uneasy feeling; after 6 mo, are now only taking when symptoms present. works great for my child. looking for a homeopathic rem ...

While taking this medication, my stomach pains were almost identical to not taking medication at all. In addition, I was extremely tired and suffered from slightly blurred vision.

I have IBS for 30 years. Controlled it with donnatel/Belladonna with great success. Since that drug was discontinued, I have been using dicyclomine for 2 months. Does not help with the cramping or gas. Xanax works better.

Comment:
My doctor diagnosed me with irritable bowel syndrome less than two weeks ago. Since I was prescribed this medication, I have had a sever dry mouth, bloating, constipation and severe stomach cramps. I have also been extremely flush and have had a slight rash. I have quit taking it and I am calling my doctor in the morning to see if there is another approach to her diagnosis.

For my IBS and sometimes VERY painful stomach cramps, this drug has been a holy grail, a lifesaver. The only side effect I can perceive is mild dry mouth. I cannot tell you what a HUGE difference Bentyl has made in my life. Extremely happy!
