Discussions that mention bentyl

Hi....what tests have you had done at this point?

Are you having bleeding in the stool -- if so, it's not just IBS...although you could have that as well.

Are you seeing a gastroenterologist? There is a medication called Bentyl (Bentyol in Canada) that is an antispasmotic which will help with some of those symptoms. A low dosage 10mg would be enough to help get you through until you know what you're dealing with.

You might consider to change your diet somewhat to ease some of your symptoms. Just out of curiosity...what do you eat? Do you ingest any artificial sweeteners? If so, stop them, for they're a severe gut irritant.

Just a few more suggestions.
