Linzess
A myIBSteam Member asked a question 💭

I had started to take Linzess ... diarrhea for approx 2 weeks took Imodium (1 dosage) while still taking Linzess ... no diarrhea. Since then I’m constipated - I did a couple days Miralax. (Still on Linzess). Still not have regular bowel movements/constipation. Is this common with Linzess plus IBS?????

"She is full of crap!" Well.. Yes I am, literally. Then my Dr will tell me to do a prep just to clear me out. Then it starts all over.
