Hello, Clyde! How are you? I'm sorry that it isn't working for you.

The manufacturer states that it can be taken with 1 ounce of water, or you can open the capsule and sprinkle the beads over a teaspoon of room temperature apple sauce, a half hour before eating or drinking anything else.

And yes, when you do eat, you can have a beverage with your meal, as usual.

The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, flatulence, cramping, and diarrhea.

Has there been any change?

I take mine in the middle of night like three hours before I have to wake up with a big glass of water. I set a special alarm. My doctor thinks I'm crazy but when I wake up I go right to the bathroom and totally clean out. Been doing this for two years.

My gastro Dr advised me to NOT take it in the morning, but to take it after work or at bedtime. It's not working. I'm on 290 mgs.

Linzess worked for a week. I take regularlly but stopped working. On healthy diet get plenty of exercise. Seems like it is not an effective drug.
