I've been taking Linzess for about 10 months, first on the 145mg and then the 290. It helps my severe constipation, IBS and a colon my gastroenterologist calls loopy. I've gained some weight, but I don't think it was from the Linzess. I suggest you give it a try, because chronic constipation is nothing to fool around with.
I've gained a little weight because of what I've been eating along with no exercise. I was a professional dancer/teacher, so being in shape and exercising was my life. Now, 15 years out of teaching, I've done alot of yo-yoing with my weight. I do take MS Contin for Interstitial Cystitis and a horribly messed up spine, but the constipation has been a lifeling issue.
Best of luck to you,
