The dose of Bentyl your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- How you respond to the medication
- Other medications you may be taking
- Your age
- Other medical conditions you may have.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
(Click Bentyl Dosage for more information.)
As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Bentyl. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
Some of the common side effects include but are not limited to:
- Dry mouth (see Bentyl and Dry Mouth)
- Blurred vision

Bentyl can potentially interact with a number of other medications (see Bentyl Interactions).
