" I was prescribed reglan: it was good for cramping, and nausea, but for me it disturbed my sleep (wild dreams I didn't like).

As for Bentyl: I was allergic; I broke out into a red rash all over my body that lasted 4 days. The Doc said that was rare.

For pain and bloating and gas I take OTC Phazyme; it works great!

Good luck. "

" Bentyl works great for me. It has never affected sleep or any other system in my body but the digestive system. However, at first my doctor prescribed too much - I was taking it several times a day and consequently getting no warning! Just had to run! Now I only take it as needed - to ease when it is flaring and soothes and relaxes those's been very helpful in that way for my situation.

Let us know how it works for you! "

" I use bentyl. took a few weeks to totally take effect, but now it is pretty helpful.

I also get bloating and take Acidophilus (a probiotic) for that. Sort of works. "

" New here- went to GI doc after all other tests failed to determine cause of bloating & lots of 24/7 pain for over 2 months now. Don't have constipation or diahreah at any time either! So this Dr.prescribed Bentyl. I'm going to give it a week or two before give up on it. Doesn't seem to be doing anything for pain in groin. Had GYN ultrasound too- no cause found. Tired & miserable with non stop pain tho. Just my luck- I have to get a "mystery ailment" that nobody can pin down the cause from! :( "
