Just took two linzess and they didn’t work. Need to take a dulcolax for constipation relief but afraid the linzess will cause problems. How long does linzess stay in your system?

My symptoms worsened as well! I have had a constant headaches too, but I am prone to them. It hasn't helped me, I just have gone 3x in 10 days and only hard balls.

Please try Miralax or a generic form of it. Ask your pharmacist for the generic form. It may be called Clear Lax and there are other names. Their ingredient is Polyethylene Glycol 3350. I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome with constipation. Pretty severely. Sometimes I don't go for 2 weeks at a time! I have been taking Linzess for over 10 days, and have only gone 3x hard balls. It says it should work in 1 week. I am going back to Miralax. You just have to make sure you drink a lot of water and if very constipated take it every day. I take 2 capsules, but that is because 1 cap does nothing for me. Everyone is different. My boyfriend only needs 1/4 of a cap every day, and he has no problem going. It is safe to take daily, to the advice of my GI doctor. They even suggest it take before a colonoscopy. In that case, you add 1 cup of Miralax to 64 ounces of Gatorade. No red Gatorade before a colonoscopy. It has no taste! Mix in water or juice, but not in soda! The carbonation will reduce its effectiveness. I would start with 1/2 of a cap from the top of the bottle of Miralax and go from there. It is the only thing that has helped me! The reason I took Linzess was that I wasn't being consistent with Miralax, so I thought it wasn't working as well. But, I think if I start taking it every day again, it should work like it used to. If you are still having trouble, I would make an appointment with a Gastroenterologist. There may be another problem that you are not aware of. Other things can cause constipation, besides IBS-C.

Drink SMARTWATER at least 2 cups. It has the correct balance of potassium and sodium.

Did you ever get resolve for your little man? I received a good quality probiotic and prebiotic that has science to back its efficacy. I am a mother of 4 and would never give advice to others that I do not follow for myself and my family. Please reach out if guys like more information. I hope he’s much better!!

I have been off of Linzess now for 3 weeks because of bad rectal bleeding! The effects of this drug still has not gone away (severe gas and bloating with very soft stool oozing -- this has been a mess! Never experienced this before the Linzess! I have now had to start to use the very strong anti-diarrhea to try and stop this mess)!

Re: Jesse (# 15) Expand Referenced Message

I have had heart palpitations for 2months since stopping Linzess. I now see a heart doctor as I can't sleep and have dizzy spells regularly. This medicine is evil and causes this problem in 100% of women, 50% of African Americans and 33% people between 50-59. I fall in all categories and don't know when I will recover.

Re: Kitty (# 6) Expand Referenced Message

I'm very sorry to hear about your grandson. I hope he's gotten around to feeling better since the timing of your post. Unfortunately, since there's no way of knowing ahead of time how anyone will react/respond to pharmaceutical medications, all I can do is encourage him to consult with a doctor when it comes to prescription drugs such as Linzess... However, I don't know if you heard of Essiac tea leaf, but it works miracles for me and my family whenever serious indigestion occurs, so I just thought I'd mention it as another possible avenue of treatment. I'm actually very hesitant to take it unless the problem is severe because it works almost too well. All you need is an 8oz cup full and it seriously cleans you out like nobody's business, LOL! I believe it is readily available at most health food stores as well as Amazon and other internet retailers. Please let me know if I could be of any more assistance in this matter.

Wishing you both good health always!
