Hi Jazzmine. I've been on Bentyl for over a year now. I started with the 10mg one and now I'm on the 20mg. I rarely experience blurred vision. I never had any dizziness. I've found taking Bentyl has helped me a great with treating my IBS. Good luck!

To Jazzmine, I have used Bentyl and it will make you drowsy. I use Levsin, which is similar, but only for short times when I need it. I take 2 other prescriptions that warn of "drowsiness" so you know I do not use it everyday. One is for blood pressure( a must) and the other an anti-depressant which shouldn't be stopped abruptly, so you know where I stand on the anti-spasmotic. Only when I really feel cramps coming on and am too anxious. Good luck. Phyllis

Has anyone tried prescription Bentyl or the generic equivalent? My Dr. prescribed this for me, but I have put off trying it do to the possible side effects! Blurred vision, dizziness...
