Linzess

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?????
