I was prescribed Bentyl for constant pain I am having in the bowel area. They thought it was diverticulosis (which I did have) but I am clear of that now and still have the pain and nausea. The surgeon gave me Bentyl. I see side effects are nausea. I already have nausea and take Zofran for the nausea. Anyway, my real question is it says not to drink alcohol while taking Bentyl. What is the reason for this? I'm really just about ready to throw away every single medication I am taking. I am very frustrated. And yes I have spoke with my Dr and will be seeing a gastrointestinal Dr. soon.

Alcohol is notorious for causing someone to experience more side effects than usual.

Since the FDA lists Bentyl as possibly causing dizziness and drowsiness, alcohol could enhance that and one drink may affect you as if you'd had 2 or 3, and so on.

If your doctor clears it for you to imbibe, then you should make sure that you're not going to be doing any activities that require mental alertness, such as driving.

Is there anything else I can help with?
