I am on Synthroid and amlodipine. I take Amitiza right after breakfast and at bedtime. I have had accidents thinking it was just the gas I get with Amitiza. I read in a few comments that Synthroid or high blood pressure medicines cause problems with taking Amitiza. Is this true?

I was given some amitiza samples to try for opioid induced constipation. In four days I was impacted. It is terrible. I have gone back to miralax and stool softeners every day. It works, but at 3-6 days I have a huge cramping BM. Anyone else with OIC have anything that REALLY helps??

I have been on 24 mcg of Amitiza daily for several years. Now my health insurance has taken Amitiza off their preferred list. They suggest Linzess. I need a comparison before I switch medications. I am lactose intolerant and have chronic constipation due to my milk insensitivity.
