: : Hi Angie, I had these bad headaches last week. My Dr. tod me to slowly stop taking BENTYL and she would put me on LIBRAX. Well, I never was able to get off the BENTYL. On the last day of my BENTYL I got very ill! I called my Dr. and was told she was not in the office (she was on Jury Duty) and not expected back for a week. I was refered to the ER. The ER DR. told me not to stop the BENTYL !!!! As soon as I took my BENTYL I was well again. Could I be dependet on that Drug ???? Than I found out I was taking my pills wrong. The ER DR told me to take them 2hrs. before meals or 2 hrs. after my meals. I use to take them 3 X a day every 8 hrs.Some times with my dinner He also told me not to take a ANT ASSIT (spelling) ha ha I am from Germany and have a hard time with my english. No tums no rollaid and or such stuff when taking BENTYL. Now I wait for my regular Dr. to come back and see if she still wants me on LIBRAX or stay on BENTYL. However I will let you know either way. Thank you ALL! CP

: That's dr. never mentioned before meals. Of course, my dr. at the time was a doofus! I think Bentyl can cause a dependence, but I'm not sure how severe. That sounds like something for Harry. I do remember being sleepy alot on Bentyl as well. I know your system can become dependent on laxatives, but I'm not sure about the other. At least your diarrhea stopped, that's the important thing. I would start timing your headaches. See how soon they happen after you take the Bentyl and how long it takes for them to go away...if they go away. Let me know how the new schedule works! Good Luck

Thanks Angie, I will let you know.
