I lost five pounds without even trying. My husband joked saying, “So I guess we could safely say you were full of @#*. Haha.
I thought it was so cool to lose weight without effort. I bought myself smaller jeans. The weight stayed off for several months but has suddenly come roaring back. I don’t know if that’s the Linzess or something I’m eating. I’m going to alter my diet.
If anything I felt more bloated and did not feel like I lost weight at all. The doctor's scale showed no change. It hasn't worked well for me either even with the highest dosage of Linzess plus stool softeners (no stimulants added).
Linzess only worked for me for 4 days. I never lost more than 1-2 lbs. which I assume was stool weight. No long term weight loss, even with the fiber powder I now use daily. It's not meant to be a weight loss product.
