: : OK, many of you suggested "fiber." I am wondering IF the pills work as good as the powder. The pill would be much more convenient for me. How many to start?? Which brand?? Would appreciate everyone's advise. I am only on Bentyl and do not see GI till Sept 14. Will try anything. I think there is more information here than I will learn from GI anyway. Sorry to sound like a difficult patient, but I have found plenty of difficult doctors!!

: I was just prescribed Bentyl and have a fear of most medications and haven't taken it yet. What is your experience?

My experience with Bentyl has been nearly a lifesaver, tho not enough of a cure that I have any total freedom of D. I take it about 15 minutes before I eat but it only lasts a few hours and I feel the urgency begin and I better be close to a bathroom OR ELSE. I dare not eat away from home and I am no D free throughout the night even tho I take 10mg at bedtime. It's not a solution but it has caused no serious side effects and I do not tolerate meds well. Let me know how you do.
