Bentyl Interactions

Bentyl Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Bentyl is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitor Medications
Taking Bentyl with an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor can make both medications less effective. Your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely and adjust your dose of these medications to prevent interactions from occurring.
 
Antacids
Do not take antacids and Bentyl at the same time, as antacids may interfere with the absorption of Bentyl.
 
Anticholinergic Drugs
Combining an anticholinergic medication with Bentyl (which is also an anticholinergic medication) can increase your risk of Bentyl side effects, such as dry mouth, constipation, dry eyes, or difficulty passing urine.
 
Metoclopramide
Bentyl may make metoclopramide less effective. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
 
Glaucoma Medications
Bentyl may cause increased eye pressure, making glaucoma medications less effective. People with glaucoma should not take Bentyl.
 
Pramlintide
Both pramlintide and anticholinergic medications (including Bentyl) can slow down the movement of food through the digestive tract. Therefore, taking them together can increase the risk of constipation or nausea. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining these medications.
 
Tricyclic Antidepressants
Combining a tricyclic antidepressant with Bentyl may increase your risk of side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
