You're probably referring to Bentyl, also known as dicyclomine. Its an anti-spasm medicine. I take it with Tylenol, and it basically mellows you out. I have a feeling its a muscle relaxer. It doesn't help much when I'm flaring hard, but I take it if I'm going somewhere like a dinner party or baseball game or something... just to try to prevent as much trouble as I can.
