I suffer from chronic constipation and Linzess seems too strong for my system.
Amitiza, is a prescription laxative that is helpful for people with chronic constipation or irritable bowel syndrome with constipation.
Amitiza is classified as a chloride channel activator; it draws extra fluid into the bowel, which helps the stool pass through more easily.
Amitiza acts locally in the bowel. Very little of the actual drug is absorbed into the blood stream.
You should speak with your doctor regarding the best option for you.
