What is Bentyl

Bentyl, also known by its generic name dicyclomine, is a prescription medication used to relieve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and certain gastrointestinal conditions. It works by relaxing the muscles in the intestines. While Bentyl can alleviate IBS symptoms, it does not offer a cure. To experience relief from symptoms, take Bentyl as directed by your healthcare provider.
