I have been on Linzess for about 2 months now, and it just stopped working! I had such high hopes for this, and I am so constipated and bloated. Has this happen to anyone before? Does it eventually come back around and work again?
Linzess has stopped working for me?

No, it didn't restart effectiveness once it stopped working for me. I had to change drugs. The 2nd prescription didn't work after 2 weeks. My Doc recommended Benefiber which works. I now buy a discount store's version to save money. It's a fiber powder that totally dissolves in water. When you drink it, it's like drinking clear water. This continues to work for months now.
I am 72 and have had constipation problems most of my life. This last year the problem had become intolerable and I was given the Linzess recommended dose of 145 mg and it worked for about a month and now it has stopped working totally and found the need to add laxative to the mix. Anyone with any answers to this devastating condition?
I have used Linzess for almost 2 Months now & so far so good.
