Bentomine review

Bentomine is a medicament that treats stomach and intestinal disorders. Irritable Bowl Syndrome is one of these disorders, as well as colic spasms, diverticulosis and bladder spasms. It reduces the contractions of the muscles in the gastrointestinal tract, specifically the gut and the stomach. It also reduces the stomach acid that is being produced to relieve stress from the gastrointestinal tract.

Medications interact with each other in different ways. Sometimes when two different medicaments are taken together they counteract each other and produce negative effects. Before taking Bentomine be sure to tell your doctor if you are taking any of the following medicaments: antacids, antidepressants, antihistamines, diet pills, asthma medicine, injury relievers (such as Demerol), monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors, amitriptyline also known as Elavil, and doxepin more commonly known as Adapin or Sinequan. To be safe, disclose all the medicament that you are taking to your treating physician. Some medicaments actually counter the effects of Bentomine. Cisapride like the medicament Propulsid or Reglan can reverse the effects of Bentomine, when taken together the body is actually stimulated to be more active and the stomach is tenser and tighter.

Another precaution that all patients should take before taking a new medicament is to disclose all previous diseases to the doctor. In this case the medicament Bentomine affects the stomach so patients should tell the doctor about any recent operations or problems with the stomach. Also inform your doctor if you have had glaucoma, have difficulty urinating, an enlarged prostate, hyperthyroidism, liver or kidney disease, and heart disease. All this information will help your doctor make the topper decisions he can for your unique case.

Please remember that this medicament causes drowsiness in most people, so patients being treated by it should not operate heavy machinery or drive. It might be dangerous for them and for others. Taking this medicament as well as other medicaments that cause sleepiness, like anti histamines or the anti-anxiety medicaments (Valium, Ativan, Xanax), can increase the level of sleepiness. Patients taking both kinds of medicaments should watch out for that double effect. Also note that Dicylomine prevents the body from cooling off by sweating, so in various hot temperatures people might be more prone to heat stroke and fever if they are taking this medicament.

Some side effects to taking this medicament are: stomach ache, vomiting, constipation, dizziness, weakness, vision problems, loss of appetite, bloating, voiding problems and gas problems. These side effects are harmless and easily manageable. However, there are some side effects that are like early warning signs for an allergic reaction to the medicament. These are: confusion, hallucination (very rare cases), unexplained and radical mood swings, fainting, rashes, swelling, and itching. If any of these symptoms arise in an extreme case please don’t hesitate to go to the doctor immediately.
