Bentyl Uses 

This medication is an anticholinergic drug that targets the activity in the gut area. It is used to treat diseases like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diverticulitis, colic, and overactive bladder. Dicyclomine is the Bentyl generic name. 

This medication can help relieve symptoms affecting the muscles and intestines, such as spasms and cramping.

How does Bentyl work? 

The parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) releases a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is the chemical messenger responsible for causing stomach discomfort because it is the one controlling the muscular contractions.  

When this drug is administered correctly and absorbed into the bloodstream, this medicine works as an antispasmodic agent. It is responsible for preventing the chemical action of acetylcholine that transfers signals to specific cells from reaching the smooth muscles that affect how the body functions.  

As a result, this drug helps relax the smooth muscles in the stomach, relieving contractions, cramps, and spasms.

Bentyl Dosage 

The dosage of this medication depends on your condition, age, and tolerance to the pill. The formulation comes in a capsule and tablet in two different strengths: 10 mg and 20 mg. 

The recommended starting dose is Bentyl 20 mg four times a day. The dosage can be gradually increased after one week of starting the therapy to 40 mg if prescribed by your healthcare practitioner.
