Bentyl may be interacting with my Hydrochlorothiazide

Hi I have been told I have ibs by a doctor recently and pre-hypertention. I wanted to know if it is normal to have some what blurred vision, extreme sleepiness and weakness from taking the Bentyl and Hydro, it's hard to distinguished which pill is causing the symptoms but I feel it may be intensifying the symptoms since I am taking 2 pills that could cause the same side effects plus I have seasonal allergies. ## Hi!

Symax-SR0.375MG

I was wondering if this medication is used for the treatment of urinary track infection? And is it ok to take this medication if the expiration date is past. The expiration date was 2/16/05. Would this be safe to take and what would be the dangers of taking an expired Rx? ## yes you can take the med, the expiration date just indicates that the medication is loosing its potency. but alway contact your pc ## Symax is listed as containing Hyoscyamine, which is used to treat gastrointestinal problems, by slowing the action of the GI tract. It will not do anything to treat a bacterial infection, such as a UTI. Once expired, medications also tend to lose potency, and may not work as well as they did, when new, so it is best to dispose of them, and see your doctor. Typical side effects of Syma...

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...

Viberzi false positive drug test help

I take viberzi 100 mg twice a day for IBS-D and a long list of other medications. I take opioid pain medications which are Opana ER and Oxycodone/APAP which is prescribed by a pain management doctor. When he ran a urine drug screen it showed that I had Fentanyl in my system but it did not show Opana ER in my system. I have never in my life been prescribed or used Fentynal so there is no possible way that this drug screen is accurate. I didn't take my Opana ER the day of my drug screen / my pain management doctor appointment but I took it the night before at 10:00 pm and my doctor appointment was at 10:15 am; but it wasn't until around 11:30 am when I urinated into the cup. The Opana ER is a around the clock pain medication which you take a tablet every 12 hours and I been taking...

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...
