This was prescribed for severe painful abdominal bloating. Loud unexpected gas and constipation. Should I stop until I can call Dr. On Monday?
I also am on linzess. There are 2 strengths that I'm aware of. I am taking the smaller dose which is 145 mcg. I did get too much cramping and loose stools on higher dose. Now, so you are aware, I was given this drug for CONSTIPATION!! So my goodness, by all means, I would stop taking it and contact Dr . ASAP ! I was told it would help with my overall ibs symptoms and acid, but he told me diareah was not a desired effect. Eat lightly. Drink lots of water. My doctor did not say stopping this drug abruptly was an issue. When in doubt call your pharmacist! If it gets too severe over weekend call the " on call" doctor or go to urgent care. Keep hydrated. Gatorade is good for you. No fiber! Hope you feel better very soon! Let us know ! This is a pretty new drug!
