I have been on Linzess 145 mg for a month. it worked great the first 2 weeks and now it just stopped. I don't know if my body got use to it already or what could cause it.

Hello, Marci! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having.

Actually, that has been a very common complaint from people that have tried it. However, there is a higher dosage that you can try, so you may want to speak to your doctor about prescribing it.

Typical side effects to this medication may include stomach pain, nausea, gas or bloating.

Have you been taking it on an empty stomach?

Yes I've been taking it on an empty stomach & I've even doubled the dosage & it doesn't work. I finally resorted to taking Milk of magnesia nstead because I was so miserable

I'd suggest talking to your doctor, you may need to try something else.
