: : 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?
Fiber is really the only thing that has helped me, along with avoiding certain foods, and getting exercise. There is a fiber called Konsyl that I use with much success. It's a little on the expensive side. Just remember to ,start with small doses of fiber and build up to a larger dose. (I start with 1 tablespoon and worked up to 2 tablespoons.
Bentyl is an antispasmodic if I can remember, a doctor prescribed it for me when I had severe constipation and spasms in my gut. One of the side effects of Bentyl is constipation so I did not take it.
