Hello,

From what I can gather, there shouldn't be any limitations regarding what laxatives you can use with this medication. However, I'm not a medical doctor so that information is only based on my research.

A couple laxative medications I've found information on are:

Amitiza- this medication softens the stool by increasing its water content, so the stool can pass easily. This medication is taken twice daily with food. Some reported side effects of Amitiza include headache, nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and vomiting.

Cephula, Chronulac, Constulose, Duphalac, Enulose, (lactulose)- Lactulose, a prescription laxative with many brand names, draws water into the bowel to soften and loosen the stool. Side effects include gas, diarrhea, upset stomach, and stomach cramps.

Linzess (linaclotide)- this medication comes in capsule form and is taken once daily on an empty stomach, at least 30 minutes before the first meal of the day. Linzess helps relieve constipation by helping bowel movements occur more often. It is not approved for use in those 17 years of age and younger. The most common side effect of Linzess is diarrhea.

You can learn more about this drug on the page for Amitiza Details

I hope this info helps!
