BENTYL DRUG INFORMATION, ABOUT BENTYL
WHAT IS BENTYL?
Bentyl medication is used to treat the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. Bentyl is in a class of medications called anticholinergics. They relieve muscle spasms in the gastrointestinal tract. This is accomplished by blocking the activity of a certain natural substance found in the body.
HOW TO USE
Bentyl comes as a capsule, a tablet, and a syrup to take orally.
The usual dose is four times a day. Take it around the same time every day.
Always follow the directions on your prescription label carefully for all medications. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain.
Take Bentyl exactly as directed. Do not take more or less or take more often than prescribed.
Your medical care provider will probably start you on a low dose of Bentyl then increase the dose gradually.
Your doctor or pharmacist can tell you what other conditions Bentyl is used for.
