Irritable Bowel Syndrome Overview

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a group of symptoms—including abdominal pain and changes in the pattern of bowel movements without any evidence of underlying damage.[1] These symptoms occur over a long time, often years.[2] It has been classified into four main types depending on whether diarrhea is common, constipation is common, both are common, or neither occurs very often (IBS-D, IBS-C, IBS-M, or IBS-U respectively).[1] IBS negativel...

Bentyl possibly causing bad side effects

I have been taking bentyl 10mg 4 times a day as needed and zofran 4mg 2 times a day as needed for approximately 4 to 6 months. The medications have stopped most of my stomach issues. I take approximately 12 to 14 bentyl pills a week and a zofran pill every morning with 20mg of nexium. 3 weeks ago I woke up one morning and was extremely depressed and had crazy thoughts in my head including suicide. After 2 weeks of the symptoms, I spoke with my pharmacist who stated it was the bentyl causing my issues and requested I stop taking the medicine. I stopped taking all the medication approximately 9 days ago and the symptoms have eased substantially but every once in a while they come back. I'm still getting extremely anxious and having bad thoughts but they are nowhere near as bad as they...

How Long Will Dicyclomine Hcl Remain Usable Past Expiration Date

how long will dicyclomine hcl remaine usable past expiration date ## Once a medication has expired, it is best to just dispose of it properly. There is no information available to let you know how long it still remains viable and effective past its expiration. The available data for when it expires is just derived from data that only shows the maximum time range for which effectiveness can be guaranteed in regular storage conditions. They are not required to do further testing beyond that and, since they want to see more of any given medication, it wouldn't actually make sense for them to do so. I'm sorry that I don't have a better answer for you. However, once it is expired, it starts to lose effectiveness and should be replaced with new product. Are there any other questio...

Can you take Bentyl with Xanax?

I just started taking Bentyl for diarrhea, but I have been taking Xanax for anxiety. Now I'm feeling very dizzy. Should I stop Xanax? ## Hello Ern, I'll start by giving some helpful advice. Any time that you are taking prescription medication it is a good idea to contact your doctor prior to taking anything else, even if it is over the counter medication for something that may seem rather urgent. According to the cvs drug interaction checker this combination of medication may increase the sedative properties. This is a moderate drug interaction and shouldn't be cause for a great concern generally but I don't know your entire health history or medical status. Since the Xanax is the prescription medication I would suggest you don't stop taking that medication and inste...

Bentyl side effects are horrible

I have been on Bentyl for about 6 weeks and the constipation is so bad that I have had to take laxatives. I'm seriously thinking of not taking it anymore. ## Hello, Kathy! How are you doing? Has there been any change? Constipation is not a common side effect of this medication, it is actually listed by the FDA as being a very rare one. Have you consulted your medical provider? You may need to try a different medication, this one may not be right for you. Has anyone else experienced this while taking Bentyl? ## I was on bentyl off & on for about four years now & ive been having vision issues . I went to ER for dizziness, light headness & anxiety , blurred vision & headaches . I had MRI done everything was normal but the Dr. informed me that these were serious side eff...

What is a blue pill with 555 over 126?

Round light blue pill blank on one side and 555 on the top 126 on the bottom of the other side no score ## Hello, Todd! How are you? Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find an identification for this, yet. They seem to be old tablets that are no longer manufactured, as from other posts I've found they were said to be found in the homes of elderly deceased relatives. Thus finding an ID may be a bit difficult. However, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize these tablets? ## I found a few of these mixed in with some 10mg Dicyclomine Capsules after my mom died. This DOES NOT constitute a definite identification because I can't find them listed anywhere else either, but at least it's a place to start.

I found a small round light green pill with 39 on one side and blank on the other, and I cannot find it online. Do you know what it is? Curious to know, as I have a 17 year old in the home. ## Hello Brenda, I was able to find a pill that matches your description, the NIH lists this pill as a hyoscyamine sulfate pill which is used to treat stomach/intestinal problems such as cramps and irritable bowel syndrome. I have listed some additional information below, all information is sourced from the NIH directly.

Scopex What is it prescribed for?

I was prescribed Scopex and Buscopan for kiney stones. The pain went away and I thought the stone disintegrated. ## Hello, Rene! How are you? Yes, as reported by the NIH, some of them do pass on their own and disintegrate, once they enter the bladder. Scopex is prescribe as an antispasmodic to help alleviate the pain stones can cause as they are passing, it also contains an analgesic for the pain. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation. How long have you been symptom free? ## Hi have got a backlog of water which can't come out as there's a kidney stone there. Get very bad spasms that are very painful. Will scopex help with the spasms and bad pain. Until I can get this sorted out. ## Sorry have got this problem with my lef...

Donnatal ripoff

I have been a pharmacist for 45 years and remember when this medication retailed for twenty dollars for 100 tablets, now one thousand dollars. Something is really wrong here. There's no reason for such an over price for this medicine. Seems like collusion between the FDA and big pharma to ripoff the patient. Don't trust either one. Just another example of greedy pharma. ## A new company has bought out the original mfg. This company thinks it can rip people off by charging ten dollars a pill. Don't let them do this to you. Write your congressman and let them know what this drug company is doing. They prey on very sick people with no care for the patient. ## I have been successfully using Donnatal grape elixir for decades for static esophogeal spasm, and have not been able to ...
