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...

CHLORD/CLIDI CAP 5-2.5MG ## my doctor prescribed librax for a stomach problem. my insurance co. substited chlord/clidi. what is the difference. is it generic ## Yes, this is just the generic, so it is named for the active ingredients, the name Librax is a proprietary brand name. ## BEWARE! - CHLORD/CLIDI CAP 5-2.5MG (LIBRAX) Will show positive for Benzodiazepine (Benzos) Took one of my wife's stomach pills a day or two before an pre-employment screen and the test returned a positive for Benzos. ## did you get the job? ## I have been prescribed this medication for many years; have tried going without and had disasterious results.

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...

How long does bentyl stay in your system

How long does this drug stay in your system? I was given 2 10mg pills in the e.r. They didn't work for pain, so I was then given a script for norcos. How long should i wait between pills? ## Bentyl contains the active ingredient Dicylcomine, it is used to help with intestinal spasms and cramping, for conditions such as IBS. However, it is not a narcotic and will not treat pain as a narcotic does. That means that the Norco, which contains Acetaminophen and the narcotic Hydrocodone, can be used whenever you need to use it, for the pain, as long as you don't take more of it or take it more frequently than the doctor directed. It may cause side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Learn more: Are there any comments or questions? ## How long does it take ...

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.

Anyone else? ## Hi, I have been taking Bentyl or Dicyclomine (same medicine) for 4 years I have not experienced that. I would tell your doctor. It might be too strong. It serves me well.

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 was prescribed Scopex and Buscopan for kiney stones. The pain went away and I thought the stone disintegrated. ## Hello, Rene! How are you?

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 ...

Severe upper abdominal pain / endoscopy

In 2015 while pregnant with twins I started having severe pain mid chest right below my bra line. Being a high risk pregnancy I had weekly sonograms and I mentioned the pain to the doctor thinking it was normal due to my rapidly growing abdomen he had the tech take a look. My gallbladder was completely FULL of stones. I had no option for surgery due to being pregnant. Due to complete placenta previa I knew I was going to have to have a c-section.

Use Of Spasmo Proxyvon for pain in Prostate glands

Can Spasmo Proxyvon be used for pain relief in Prostate area for a man of 47 yrs age? ## Spasmo Proxyvon contains: dicyclomine hydrochloride 10 mg + acetaminophen 400 mg + propoxyphene napsylate 100 mg. The combination of these creates a very mild narcotic pain killer. If you do have pain in the prostate area, I would honestly consider diagnosing the underlying cause of this inflammation/pain to better decide how to treat it instead of covering up the pain temporarily. ## substitute for spamo proxyvon or other same kind of medicines. ## Yes, it can used to relieve pain in any area or any parts of the body. But, consumptions of excessive medicine can cause overdose or death. If you took an average dose it can even cure some minor and critical pain forever.

libertrim trimebutina

prescription ## Hello, I would like to start by stating that this medicine is not manufactured in the United States. From what I was able to understand this medication is manufactured in Mexico by Carnot Laboratories. Reportedly Libertrim Trimebutina comes in two different pill types. One contains the active ingredients trimebutina 100mg and simeticona 37.50 mg while the other contains trimebutina 200mg and simeticona 75mg. This medicine is reported by the manufacturer to be used for treating irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Unfortunately I am not able to decipher a lot of the content on the manufacturer's website as I am not that fluent in spanish. Hopefully the information I have provided is useful. Have a great day.


diclopamine ## I have not seen any information in my research on a substance called Diclopamine and wonder if it may be a misspelling for Dicyclomine or Cyclopamine? Dicyclomine is most commonly known for treating irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) It works by relieving muscle spasms in the G.I. tract by blocking the activity of a certain natural substance in the body. Drug Class: anticholinergics Cyclopamine is a naturally occurring chemical that belongs in the family of steroidal alkaloids. According to, Cyclopamine has both teratogenic and antitumor activities. However, on a cautionary note, it has also been stated that Cyclopamine is a teratogen isolated from the corn lily (Veratrum californicum) that causes fatal birth defects. I hope this info helps!

Any alternative to leave Spasmo Proxyvon

I have been using Spasmo Proxyvon from two years and now i want leave it but due to it's side effect i am unable to do so. Therefore i would be grateful if any one has the other alternative. ## Spasmo Proxyvon contains the active ingredients Dicyclomine, Acetaminophen and Propoxyphene, and this last one is a mild narcotic and can be addicting. It has been pulled from the market in most countries, due to the risk it causes of cardiac dangers. However, due to that and the fact that you have been taking it for so long, your best chance for stopping this medication is probably to seek medical assistance from a doctor. Learn more Propoxyphene information here. Have you tried tapering off of it? ## hi sir i m very sceard and my muscles are pain regurlarly i take 10to12 spasmo proxyvon pil...
