How long bentyl stay in your system? If I drink lots of water can I get it out quicker?

This ia awful. The prescription insert doesn't say how long this stays in your system. Does anyone know how long it stays in your system and if there is anyway to get it out of your system quickly. IT CAUSES RASHES!!!

It looks like the drug stays in your system for nine or ten hours, and I would recommend drinking the water, since it's eliminated mostly through urine.
Just hang in there, and I hope things get worked out for you soon. Make sure to note somewhere that you had this reaction, so doctors know not to prescribe it to you again.

I am taking Bentyl...Is it ok to take the muscle relaxer, Soma, with Bentyl?

I currently take Bentyl for stomach adhesion pain. I will be having surgery in about two weeks. I was wondering if its ok if I take the muscle relaxer, Soma, with the Bentyl...I'll probably ask the pharmasist, but I wanted to see if anyone else had any good answers.

I take bentyl as well, but i take 80 mgs a day. Taking that many makes me infunctionable period. I think you should be ok, but do definatly call a pharmacist. I wish i could be more help

My heart goes out to you. I have IBS, which is Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I go from bad to worse then back again. Its awful living like this. I always have to stop when I go anywhere in my car and use the restroom. They say diverticulitis is worse. You really need to go see a gastroenerologist if the doctor your seeing now is not helping you.

Any advice on TERRIBLE cramps with Crohn's Disease? How about Bentyl or other antispasmodics?

My daughter's Crohn's cramps have become really debilitating. Levsin was not helping at all, so her G.I. doc has prescribed Bentyl as (I think) a short-term fix, until Remicade (her first infusion was yesterday) kicks in. Any advice on this or other anti-spasmodics? Thank you.

You could try Symax Duotab CR. The active drug in Symax is Hyoscyamine. Hyoscyamine works by decreasing acid production in the stomach, slowing down the natural movements of the gut, and relaxing muscles in many organs. I've been on it for Crohn's and am currently on Remicade...other than an RX you can only do ONLY Tylenol...heating pads for the pain, warm baths will less the pain and the movements of the bowels. Honestly, I know it is not much to tell you but that is about all you can do. In about 7-9 months have you GI doctor run a Remicade Anti-body test and her CRP level.

What are your experiences with Bentyl?

I recently had my Gall Bladder out and my doctor thinks I may have IBS. So he has prescribed to take Bentyl. Has anyone had experience with this medicine, or have any suggestions of help. I hate taking pills but I also hate going to the bathroom 12 times a day. HELP!!

Is it safe to take Bentyl with Percocet?

I had to go to the ER the other night for stomach pain and was perscribed Bentyl and Percocet. I've been reading about the Bentyl and it says not to take it with Percocet. Im confused because the Dr. wants me to take them both. Is that safe??

I would be very cautious about this situation. Doctor's can sometimes make mistakes. Also pharmacists can too. Did the pharmacist give you the right prescriptions?

On the other hand, sometimes a doctor may go against medication warnings because they have the knowledge and expertise to do so.

It is late where I am so contacting my doctor would not be an option as I feel you would be in the same position. You may want to call the ER you had to go to and ask them about the medicines you have been prescribed to ask why you were given two medicines that are not to be taken together according to the information you have. If the doctor that treated you isn't there they should have someone to help you. If you do find out indded that you do have the right medications be sure to ask why these medicines are not normally taken together, and why it is ok in your case. I wouldn't risk taking them until I found out more info!

Could I take Bentyl for leg cramps?

I get really, really bad leg cramps sometimes and was wondering if I could take Bentyl for the pain?

Dicyclomine (Bentyl) relieves spasms of the muscles in the stomach and intestines by blocking the actions of certain chemicals in the body. This is a different type muscle than the skeletal muscles you are discussing.

It wouldn't work.
