Hello everyone. I have been prescribed by my doctor with Linzess. I have chronic GI disorders abdominal, pain, feeling bloated (severely uncomfortable). I started yesterday but when I woke up this morning, I had this pain, distention in my whole abdomen that extended to both sides. I took 3 aspirin but it did not help. I took Ibuprofen but just weans off the pain. Should I continue this medication? I understand that there is no generic equivalent foe Linzess but I'm on Medicare and I find the medicine expensive, is there a good alternative for this?

Thank you
