Laxative Overview

Laxative (purgatives, aperients) are substances that loosen stools[1] and increase bowel movements. They are used to treat and prevent constipation.[2] Laxatives vary based on how they work and the side effects they have. Certain stimulant, lubricant and saline laxatives are used to evacuate the colon for rectal and bowel examinations, and may be supplemented by enemas under certain circumstances. Sufficiently high doses of laxatives may cause diarrhea. Some laxatives combine more than one ac...

how long does it take for linzess to get out of your system
2 Replies RSS
how long does it take for linzess to be completely out of your system ## How long does it take linzess to get out of your system? ## @ike / sandy, From what I could gather, Linaclotide (Linzess) doesn't remain in your system very long at all. According to a study on, the parent drug (Linaclotide) completely degrades to its metabolite within 30 minutes, with a first-order half-life of only 3 minutes. [1] source: PubMed / PMC3638410 That said, my understanding is that Linzess should be completely out of one's system within 1-3 days easy. However there are other important variables outside of the half life that may prolong or otherwise have some sort of impact on the estimated time frame. Hope this helps!

30 Before Lunch?
Post a Reply
Would taking Linzess on an empty stomach 30 before be just as effective? I have an hour drive to work and then approx. 1/4 to 3/4 of a mile before I get to my work station.....and there are no restroom on the walk in. I usually straving firsting thing in the morning so waiting until before lunch would work out so much better for me.

muscle aches and linzess
3 Replies RSS
I have been on Linzess for a month. My dose is now 1 every other day. I am still waiting to see if the diarrhea subsides on the new dose. I have had another problem which started about 5 days in. My hips started aching. Since then I have having muscle tension in my shoulders and upper back. I dont' want to give up on the Linzess, but am concerned about the muscle aches. Is the diarrhea caused by the Linzess dehydrating me. My urine output seems normal. Or could I be reacting to something in the Linzess? ## Hi Karen, Sorry to hear about the muscle aches/diarrhea. From what I could gather, both diarrhea and stomach pain are reported to be common but potentially severe side effects of Linzess (Linaclotide) that you should talk with your doctor about if the symptoms do not go away on th...

Has anyone in the US used this yet for colonscopy and what did it cost? ## I've used this Prep and it was wonderful. It tasted like orange soda and was very small. I undergo routine colonoscopies and have now finally found my prep of choice because it taste great and is tiny. Suprep & Moviprep = YUK!!! ## Thanks, Johnny, was that in the US? and what did it cost? I really don't care if it is easy to use. I may need to convince my Gastro in some way. ## I used prepopik yesterday. It tastes like unsweetened lemonade with LOTS of artificial sweetener. Like lemon koolaid without sugar. Texture is good though, not thick or slimey. Mix with refridgerated cold water, not tap water and stir well. Drink with a straw. Brush your teeth and tongue after drinking to get rid of taste. You ...

Linzess stopped working

I have been on the 145 dose of Linzess for several years now, and it was like a miracle drug. No side effects, and for the first time in 30 years, regular BMs. The past few months have not been so great, though. Constipation, bloating and cramps have returned. I saw my Gastro a few weeks ago, and she upped my dosage to the 290. No change. Has anyone else experienced anything similar? So frustrating! ## Unfortunately, many people have reported the same experience, though the amount of time have varied. Are you making sure to take it with a full glass of water, at least half an hour, before eating or drinking anything else, as directed by the FDA? The bloating and cramps can be side effects of this medication, but it usually causes diarrhea, rather than constipation. Are you on any other ...

Passing Parrasites
Post a Reply
I've been taking Linzess for a few months now and I must say it gets the job done. Sometimes after taking Linzess I have diarrhea. I've noticed that when I do have diarrhea I pass parasites! Has anyone else experienced this? I have detoxed before with natural herbs and didnt pass a thing. I know Linzess itself kill off parasites but there is def something in it that pushes them out. Has anyone else experienced this?

Can Miralax Raise Blood Pressure
18 Replies RSS
I've never had a Bp issue and since taking miralax for a week for constipation my bp was 166/104! Could it be the Miralax? ## I double checked the side effects, both the consumer and professional listings, but I didn't find anything about it causing hypertension. Learn more Miralax details here. However, I think you should consult with your doctor for an exam and further testing, because while it isn't listed a side effect or reaction, other users have reported experiencing this from Miralax and their BP went back to normal when they stopped using it. Did you have any other unusual symptoms? ## No I haven't noticed anything. I stopped using the Miralax yesterday, increased my potassium and magnesium, drank lots of water, and cut out sodium. Today my Bp was 157/92..... I...
