Linzess is also promoted as Linaclotide. It is prescribed for treatment of chronic IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and severe constipation. Its work is to increase the release of chloride and water in your intestines. This can soften stool and increase your bowel movements. It is often given when constipation has caused your IBS. It is intended for adults only.
To treat irritable bowel syndrome with constipation, take 290 mcg once a day. This should be taken without food or at least thirty minutes prior to breakfast. The capsules should not be chewed or broken; swallow whole. To treat chronic constipation, swallow 145 mcg once a day. Again, take thirty minutes before eating your breakfast. Do not break or chew our capsule.
There are people who cannot swallow it whole. In that case, open a capsule and pour its contents into a spoonful of applesauce or bottled water and swallow at once. As well, take medicine with applesauce in an empty stomach. Some patients might have to receive Linzess capsule via a nasogastric tube. To be totally successful, make sure you follow your doctor’s instructions well. If you forget to take a dose, skip it and resume your normal dosing program. It may take up to fourteen days to feel better. Continue to use your medicine as advised. If symptoms don’t improve, consult a doctor.
Linzess may cause the following side effects:
- Serious diarrhea
- Stomach ache
- Feeling full in your stomach
The above-mentioned side effects are manageable. Consult a doctor if they worsen. If you notice sings of an allergy or electrolyte imbalance, call a doctor right away.
First, avoid Linzess if your intestines are blocked. Also, tell your physician the following:
- That you are pregnant or trying to conceive. This is because Linzess might harm a fetus, though this is not known
- As it is not clear whether Linzess can seep into breast milk and harm a baby, tell your doctor that you are lactating
- That your child has IBS or constipation. Any child below six years old should not be given Linzess. It can cause chronic diarrhea and dehydration.
