Took 2 Linzess Capsules By Accident

Liz Says:

Hello. I forgot I had taken a pill earlier and just took another, will this hurt me? I have been on this medication for a while and just totally forgot I had already taken one. Thanks!

Were you ok in the end? I'm getting tired of it not working and am considering doubling my 290 dose so I'd like to know what you experienced...

A single occasion of a double dose could possibly mean an increased risk of it's typical side effects in that moment; but I have my doubts that anything serious or long term would manifest as a result of this one time mishap. However, I too would be interested in hearing how things turned out for you Liz? Hopefully all is good!

Have any other patients here had a similar experience on Linzess?

For any newcomers on this medication, I see there are a number of other related discussion threads on MedsChat when you run a search for "Linzess" that may be worth checking out as well.

My best wishes to everyone who may be reading this!

I'm on my 4th month of linzess 290 and it has been working great until about 2 weeks ago. I want to try and take an extra one, even if it's for just 1 day, to try and clean me out. This works good for you? Was it approved by the doctor? I need help
