What is Bentyl?
Bentyl is a prescription medication given to adults and children over 6 months of age to treat bowel spasms caused by irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It is a medication that reduces your intestinal spasms by blocking the chemical signals that make your muscles contract.
You can take Bentyl as an oral syrup, as oral capsules or tablets, or it can be injected directly into a muscle. The doctor who prescribes Bentyl to you will decide which type of Bentyl is best for you. They will also tell you how much to take, how often, and for how long. Always take your Bentyl exactly as prescribed.
Bentyl active ingredients
The active ingredient in Bentyl is called dicycloverine. It is a type of drug called an antispasmodic agent that can stop muscle spasms. Dicycloverine works by blocking the action of a substance your body naturally produces called acetylcholine.
Acetylcholine is a chemical messenger molecule produced by your nerves. It attaches to the outside of your muscle cells at areas called receptors, stimulating the receptors and making the muscle contract. But when you take Bentyl, the dicycloverine it contains attaches to and blocks these acetylcholine messenger molecules. This stops them from stimulating receptors on your muscle cells, preventing the muscle from contracting and causing spasms.
