If the gallbladder problem is due to spasms, it would receive the problem. If not, it would not help. You may try it.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I did, but how can I tell if it's my IBS or gallbladder? Does Bentyl make you feel out of it?
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

Usually it is not used for gallbladder discomfort. If you are relieved with it, most likely it is due to IBS.

Thanks can you have a a strong taste in your mouth after eating?
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

Do you mean you have a a strong taste when you take Bentyl?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No after eating. Would Bentyl help gastritis?

It is possible. It doesn't help it. You should take over-the-counter proton pump inhibitors include lansoprazole (Prevacid 24 HR) and omeprazole (Prilosec, Zegerid OTC). If it doesn't help, you should have H.pylori infection checked.
