What medication are you studying?  Do you have a clinicaltrials.gov link?

Plecanatide looks like it has potential.  I've heard it described as similar to Linzess without the massive diarrhea.  Best of luck to your patients, I hope it goes well.

yes, i've read the same thing about plecanatide--that it works without giving people all that diarrhea like linzess does. hope it gets through the clinical trials and is approved soon.  we really need an effective,  reliable med for chronic constipation that doesn't have nasty side effects.


these are just my own thoughts. for expert medical advice please contact a health care professional.
