Why can Linzess harm kids ages 6 to 17? I was taking this medication at 16 and I just saw the commercial and now I am kind of worried. I can't find the answer online anywhere. It says it can harm you but why? and why would my doctor prescribe it to me if it can?
This commercial fascinates me because it says do not give to children under 6 and may harm children 6-17. So why not just say don't give to kids under 17?
The simple answer to your question is why most drugs aren't given to kids, there has been no testing to see if its safe.
Linzess should not be given to a child younger than 6 years old. Linaclotide can cause severe dehydration in a child. Do not give this medicine to any child or teenager without the advice of a doctor.
Having found this information on this website I too am wondering why they don't say not to be given to anyone under the age of 18 without direct supervision of a doctor or without hospitalization.
Because if you have not notice this Great Place called USA loves to make money and if any doctor is giving this out to any one 18 or under they are being paid to push that drug out!! Just like any other doctor who will change your medications over and over again it's all because they are getting kick backs or is paid each time his/her name shows up as giving it out!!
