Bentyl is an anticholinergic medication used to treat functional bowel or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Dicyclomine is an antispasmodic and anticholinergic drug that reduces gastrointestinal secretions, relaxes smooth muscle, and inhibits saliva and sweat secretion to improve symptoms related to various gastrointestinal disorders. These actions allow Bentyl to provide relief from functional bowel and irritable bowel syndrome.

This anticholinergic medication is generally well-tolerated and has been found effective at improving gastrointestinal conditions such as IBS and acid peptic disease.

Uses and Dosage

The dose of Bentyl prescribed will vary depending on the individual and condition being treated. Always follow your doctor’s instructions and carefully read packaging labels when using new medications.

  • Swallow capsules whole, do not chew or break them
  • Most adults are recommended to take 20mg four times a day
  • Doses can be increased to 40mg four times daily after a week of initial dosing
  • Contact your doctor if symptoms to not improve within 2 weeks of treatment
  • Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat

Bentyl may cause some side effects to develop while it affects your gastrointestinal system to improve your symptoms. Consult with your doctor for more specific information regarding side effects that you may encounter when taking dicyclomine.

Bentyl is not an approved treatment for anyone younger than 18 years of age and should never be given to someone younger than 6 months old.

Avoid driving or performing hazardous activities until you know how Bentyl will affect you because dicyclomine may cause you to become dizzy or have blurred vision.

Bentyl can decrease the amount you sweat which can increase your risk of having heat stroke if you become overheated or dehydrated during exercise and when the weather is hot. Tell your doctor if you develop a fever while taking this medication.

Using antacid medications can make it harder for your body to absorb Bentyl; avoid taking antacids or wait a few hours in between taken either medication.

You should not use Bentyl if you have any of the following:

  • Glaucoma
  • Bladder obstruction or problems urinating
  • Blockage in your digestive tract
  • Severe ulcerative colitis

  • Ulcerative colitis
  • An ileostomy or colostomy
  • An enlarged prostate
  • Liver or kidney disease

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant while taking Bentyl. Do not breastfeed while using this medication because it could cause adverse effects in your nursing infant.

Other medications that make you drowsy can increase this affect when used alongside Bentyl. Consult with your doctor before using an opioid medication, sleeping pill, muscle relaxer, or anxiety or seizure medication.

Some drugs may interact with dicyclomine and cause adverse effects. Tell your doctor about all the medications you take, including over the counter medicine, vitamins, and herbal products, but especially any of the following:

How does Bentyl work to treat IBS?

Bentyl uses dicyclomine to relax smooth muscles in your gastrointestinal tract that can spasm and cause discomfort as well as reducing secretions in your stomach. The drug’s anticholinergic activity helps provide relief to symptoms of functional and irritable bowel syndrome in combination with its action on your smooth muscle.

How long does it take for Bentyl to work?

This anticholinergic medication is quickly absorbed into your gastrointestinal tract and starts working rapidly to affect your smooth muscle and secretion levels. Dicyclomine may take some time to show improvement in your symptoms, however, because it needs time to affect your digestive tract. If symptoms don’t improve after 2 weeks of treatment, consult with your doctor.
