Linzess

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?????

Belly Pain And Spasms AFTER Bowel Movement!

Belly Pain And Spasms AFTER Bowel Movement!

This is going to sound really strange!!. I know that most people get painful bloating and spasms before a BM and then feel some relief afterward. Does anyone ever get painful spasms or pain right after a BM that could last for a couple of hours? This has been happening to me for a long time. I don't know why I never mentioned this to a doctor.
