I have had IBS-C for over 20 years. Like many of the others on the front I have taken and tried everything. on Monday my GI gave me samples of the higher dosage. I've been taking them on time and still nothing. No movement nothing. I don't know what to expect but I hope this will be the answer is normal?
That's the same with me too. I've been on Linzess, 290 mgs for almost 4 weeks now and, while it has kept me from having a blockage, it's not by much.
Have you read all the user reviews online? Just google Linzess and read them. The one thing I haven't tried, and am doing right now, is getting cleaned out, then using it. Some of the user reviews mentioned that. So yesterday I drank 2 bottles of Citrate of Magnesia (yuk! But I am allergic to glycols which are in most laxatives). Interestingly enough, drinking both did not result in a bowel movement for 18 hours, until I took my Linzess this morning. Then did it ever work! So, now all cleaned out, we shall see. I hope it gets working or I won 't be able to stay on pain meds. If you can't go poo, you die! Yet I have no idea how I will stand life without these meds - I've tried getting off of them 3 times now but the pain is just unbearable.
So come on Linzess! Time to get working ! Please !!! Take care Never2Late4Change - EJ23
