Hello All,


I have been looking everywhere for someone who has a similar situation as me.  I was prescribed linzess 2 months ago after a colonoscopy.  I have taken it consistently everyday.  I have had constipation all my life, to the point where I was impacted multiple times and had to go to the ER to get it out.   I take it everyday and nothing happens except major bloating.  About day 5 my belly is so swollen and all of a sudden I have cramps and extreme diarrhea.  Anyone else have this issue with Linzess.  Seriously, I bloat so bad it looks like I lost 10 lbs after I have a BM.  I take the 145 mg now.  Contemplating going back to Dr.  for more help.  When I get that diarrhea I want to take immodium just so I don't have to cancel plans I make with friends.  Help....  Anyone...
