Hi, I have been taking Linzess 290mg for ibs-c. I have struggled with that since my hysterectomy. I have been taking linzess for some time now and initially it didn't work which is expected. Then.....I had got the diarrhea. I took it like I was supposed to once every day at the same time every day. The diarrhea is a side effect I know of but the side effect I got recently that I do not like is I'm always hungry. After I take linzess and I "empty" every thing because of diarrhea I feel like I am always starving even though my stomach feels full and bloated. I just want and feel like I have to eat. Is this normal? Also I talked to my doctor who said that I could have gastreoperis because my stomach could not be emptying properly when I am not on the meds and when I take it it does so I feel hungry and eat a lot. I was not diagnosed with that initially. Could the medicine cause me to have gastreoperis? Or cause hunger in general? Maybe that is why people are talking about rapid weight gain?! May eat a lot and not notice it. Only problem is I notice. And I don't want to gain weight much less have a new diagnosis.

No, that is not a listed side effect that Linzess is known to cause, as reported by the FDA. Its typical side effects usually entail most of the other issues you've listed, but you may also experience dehydration, headache and stomach pain.

I think it would be worth pursuing to be sure of what's going on.

Is there anything else I can help with?
