Hello, Oscar! How are you?

Linzess is not actually intended to be used for weight loss, so there is no time frame I can give you for this. It is used to treat symptoms of IBS that are associated with constipation.

And while that may cause weight loss, in some instances, it can be dangerous to try to lose weight via giving yourself diarrhea, since it creates the risk of malnourishment and dehydration.

Common side effects to this drug may include nausea, dizziness and stomach pain.

Was it prescribed for weight loss?

I have IBS. Been taking linzesss for a month. Worked first 2 days, then constipated again.
It's never gave me diarrhea, in fact when I did go it wasn't that much. I had high hopes this would be the answer to my IBS. But it just makes me bloated & full of gas. I don't understand, am I doing something wrong? I see all these people posting diarrhea!!??

Re: Rick (# 5)

Was wondering if you are still taking this? If so, do you still have diarrhea? I just started this medicine today.
