  • Anyone tried Bentyl and/or Pamine Forte?

    Hi there,
    Has anyone tried Bentyl and or Pamine Forte? I was on Pamine years ago but now w/IC I'm terrified of side effects such as urinary retention. My dr. wants me on Bentyl but again, I'm afraid of side effects. Anyone tried these w/success? What side effects did you have, and did they lessen?

    Thanks,
    Tracy

    Tracy ~ 29 years old with Toxoplasmosis (from birth), Fibro/CFS (since age 13...ouch), severe IC, IBS-D, severe PFD (surgery made it even worse), vulvodynia, hiatal hernia, GERD, ulcers, severe gastritis, numbness/tingling in extremeties, pelvic nerve damage--mainly urethral, urinary retention, pelvic reconstruction 7.10.07 (fixed rectocele, rectal prolapse, lifted bladder, urethra, uterus, and repaired vaginal walls), Raynaud's, 2 severely herniated discs in neck and one in low back, anemia, PCOS, anxiety/depression/panic attacks (since forever). Still having major bowel problems (inability to empty rectum...any ideas?? ).

    I'd like to be on House, MD as a medical mystery.

    I take: LIQUID Atarax, Flomax, Soma (yet again), acidophilus, Glucosamine/Chondroitin with MSM & collagen, d-mannose. MAJOR flare from Cystoprotek! Re-trying freeze dried aloe vera w/some decent results!

    Tried and failed: Elavil, Ultram, Prosed DS, Benadryl, Bentyl, Valium, Ativan, Zanaflex, Librax, Sanctura (all caused retention among other things), bladder instills (owwwwww!), Elmiron (allergic-throat tightening). Failed Interstim-no feeling in sacral nerves...

    I'm allergic to penicillan, sulfa, reglan, quinolones, clindamycin, and now LATEX!

    HI! I've tried Pamine and it gave me urine retention and it was awful! It also caused constipation. I don't blame you for being careful with what meds you take.....you don't want worse symptoms than you already have! Good luck! Roxie

      bentyl

      i have been taking the generic (dicyclomine) for years, prescribed for my IBS-D. However, when I notice some spasms of the pelvic floor (i.e. bad pelvin pain especially after urinating multiple times, or intercourse), I also take one (20mg), and w/in approx 15-20 minutes feel significantly better. It does make you a bit drowsy at times, and some minor dry mouth, but other than that, this is great. Best of Luck. :woohoo:
