06 Apr 2011 I have been taking Bentyl for a few years now, and I only take it when I have symptoms. Sometimes twice a month, sometimes I skip months.. It works miracles with stomach pain, which is why I take it, but I do get a lot of the side effects. I thought I was the only one! I'm glad to see a strong 10% of people seem to get the same thing. Blurred vision, memory problems, equilibrium is slightly bad, slurred speech, dry mouth and very drowsy. If I have to take it more than once in a day or two the symptoms aren't nearly as strong. But go off of it for a couple months and take it again, and hello symptoms! Anyone else ever feel any of this?

18 Jul 2010 Even though the medication is slightly painful it is nothing compared to the pain I was feeling in my stomach and this medication just relieved all of that pain and it just felt amazing, the cramping in my stomach was just gone. No side effects from this medication or anything.
