    First started having extreme pain (combined with liquid stools) when early teen. (Actually all but prevented me from dating, because the attacks came so frequently and unpredictably, that I had to carry toilet paper rolls in my bags.) Back then, x-rays were 'primitive' compared to now. Regardless of the amount of barium one would drink (a chalky white liquid that coats the esophagus, sto ... Show Full Comment

    Have started taking this "miracle" pill a few weeks ago. I can say that it has giving me LIFE again! Before taking this pill, I had constant abdominal pain. I am taking a 10 mg pill, but will ask the doc for a 20 mg pill, as this pill is pretty much working about 90%. Hopefully, with the increase of dosage, the abdominal pain will be gone 100%!

    Bentyl is very much a miracle medication. I suffer from Diverticulitis, and for those who suffer like I do, they know the true severe pain this condition causes. I was prescribed Bentyl 20mg about 5 years ago, and it is absolutely what I call "life-saver".

    Long time user. I was swithed by my insurance company to the generic brand of bentyl because it was cheaper. The generic did not work. Had the insurance company change back to bentyl brand to realize the benefits. Weird how the generics did not work.

    Perscribed Bentyl after visiting the ER with severe stomach/hiatal hernia problems. it worked a little bit to relieve the cramping, but I didn't think it was going to have horrible side effects. made me think I was having panic attacks. would get very hot, and the feeling of restlessness/ claustrophobia would overwhelm me. then the heat would subside into chills, and if i would think about ...
