I used colonoscopy prep to clean out prior to starting Linzess. I've been drinking lots of water along with the medication.
Was the colonoscopy prep successful?
Linzess only made my stomach hurt really bad. Amitiza is a wonder drug, but it's not usually covered by most prescription plans. It didn't matter one bit to me. My doctor wrote a letter of medical necessity, and I've been getting it every month. It's the only thing that works for me and it's amazing. Check to see if your doctor has a sample.
If you continue to go much longer without a BM, you need to start thinking about the possibility of a bowel obstruction, so make sure you keep your doctor informed about what's happening and how Linzess is or is not working for you. It's very important.
