I have Ulcerative Colitis as well and my GI gave me Bentyl, an anti-spasmotic, b/c I experience a lot of stomach pain anytime I eat. You have to take the med 1/2 hr before you eat. Just been on it a short time but one, it's doesn't seem to be working and, two, I'm feeling dizzy, some nausea, just out of sorts since taking it. I researched it online and some drug sites state Bentyl is not indicated in people with UC, take supplements and have active bleeding, among other things. Would the GI not know this??? I am going to call her, but looking for others w/experience w/this drug. Will also post on the UC site.
Dx Ulcerative Colitis 1999; IBS; CP: Asacol x3 x3/day, Rowasa, Proctofoam, Prilosec, Bentyl, Prozac, Endocet (as needed), multi vit, probiotic, fish oil caps x2/day, calcium 1200 mg./day, Prednisone (off/on, unfortunately).
