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?
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.
