Bentyl causes a relaxation of the smooth muscles giving a spasmolytic effect during the spasms of the smooth muscles of the stomach, intestine, and biliary tracts. The drug contains Dicyclomine ingredient which is widely used in the treatment of the irritable bowel syndrome.
Bentyl lowers smooth muscle tonus in the tissues of the gastro-intestinal tract, reduces acute pain in the stomach, decreases flatulency and other negative symptoms in patients with the irritable bowel syndrome. The medicine restores a normal stool and frequency of the defecation. Bentyl selectively paralyzes muscarinic receptors, so that innervation is lowered in the tissues of the gastro-intestinal tract and painful spasms are inhibited.
A therapeutic effect occurs after the first use of a one-time dose of Bentyl but many patients need a prolonged course of the treatment to restore a normal motion of the gastro-intestinal tract.
In what dose is Bentyl used?
To treat the irritable bowel syndrome, Bentyl is used in the dose of 10 mg 4 times per day (with the same interval of 6 hours). If an evident therapeutic effect did not appear within 3-4 days, the dose is increased and a pill of Bentyl 20 mg is used 4 times per day. The maximal daily dose of Bentyl is 160 mg (40 mg of Bentyl 4 times per day).
The treatment is continued till the appearance of the signs of the disease improvement: decreased stomachache, stool recovery, no bloating.
The pills of Bentyl should be used between meals with a full glass of water. If there are no improvement of the disease symptoms, it is necessary to have a medical examination and detect an exact cause of the irritable bowel syndrome.
