Bentyl Is Giving Me Diarrhea And I've Taken Only One Pill

Is this normal? I am having side effects from radiation and the ER doctor prescribed bentyl but now I have diarrhea. Is this normal? It's not listed as a common side effect.

Even though diarrhea is not listed as a side effect of Bentyl (Dicyclomine), it becomes obvious to me that this medication is the cause of it. Had you not taken Bentyl at all, it most-likely would've never occurred in the first place, unless you ate something that triggered these constant bowel movements.

The side effect list of Bentyl seems to list every gastrointestinal side effect under the sun, except diarrhea (including constipation, stomach pain, vomiting, loss of appetite and gas or bloating):

Have you discussed this with your doctor yet?
