For Irritable Bowel Syndrome “I took this med for the first time today. 3 MGS and I was in the bathroom for a while. Good thing I was home. I felt like I took the prep for a colonoscopy…..not for me.”

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome “Works better than some other medications that I tried before, but it’s not a replacement for a healthy diet that is full of fibers and vitamins.”

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome “No way I’d use this thing again. Certainly it’s not possible to do so on a regular basis. I took it several hours ago; can’t stop going to the bathroom.It might work perfectly for some people though. If you can spare a day, try it, and see if it produces a normal bowel movement, or has you running to the bathroom with diarrhea.[edit/update] I can feel it trying to work *the next day* early in the morning (5:00 AM) waking me up. So no thank you to this drug again!”

For Chronic Idiopathic Constipation “I started on Trulance close to a month ago. I have chronic constipation due to massive nerve damage in lumbo/sacral region caused by a spinal cord disease. Since taking this medication I have actually gained 10lbs which I do NOT need, and I am developing sinus problems which is what happened when I took Linzess. I was on an antibiotic every 3-4 months while taking Linzess. I have no appetite with Trulance but I am still gaining weight? Has this happened to anyone else?? I’m at a loss what to do bc I’m out of options. I’ve taken all OTC medications and scripts and NOTHING is working. The Trulance is a hit/miss situation like Linzess was. Any certain things anyone has done to help with this?? I’m desperate. Thank y’all. “

For Chronic Idiopathic Constipation “I have IBC and after years of laxatives and enemas which stopped working I was put on linzess for just shy of two years. I gained weight had horrible bloat and brain fog feeling. I could not take linzess every day and in the last few month linzess raised my blood pressure. I just started Trulance for a week, I had diarrhea movements within two hours but do not feel bloat or in that horrible brain fog anymore also stopped gaining the weight linzess was causing I am praying this will keep working for me”
