Everything was going really well and I felt better than ever,for the first two wks on 145 and have been on the 290 for four days. Nothing for two days except stomach distension. I am so disappointed beyond belief, I will take the 145 for a month and give it a fair shot.

would you please clarify your question 1) indications for taking meds 2) how did the effect change on the higher dosage? 3) why was your dose lowered 4) have you notified your doctor about your concerns, if not please inform your doctor immediately?

Yes!!! This exact thing happened, is happening to me... Down to the four days of constipation. I broke down and took a laxative. The lower dose worked for two weeks, a bowl movement every day! Then it just stopped. So, my doctor put me on the higher dose and I felt like a hot air balloon and was still constipated. I've been trying linzess for almost a month now and was so hopeful, but I think I'm done. Why take it, if it isn't going to work. Plus seeing the exact same thing happen to you convinces me this is not good.

Yes! I have been on Linzess for one month and it works one day a week within 2 hours of taking it on an empty stomach. The remainder of the week I am constipated, full of gas, bloated, and have cramps. I am glad that it only cost me $20/month, but it is a waste of money so far.
