Amitiza for constipation ?

Hi, New to the Health Boards. I suffer from constipation. I was on Zelnorm for a couple of years till they took it off the market. I saw an ad in a magazine about something called Amitiza. Has anyone tried this or heard any feedback on this medicine? Would like some info before call Dr. about it. Right now I live on Miralax and suppositories. Thanks Kygirl

Re: Amitiza for constipation ?

Hi there! Yes, I'd just recently tried it back in September. Unfortunately, it made me feel sick for hours after I took it. I was hoping that would go away, but it never did. It also didn't help with my constipation so I stopped. I would give it a try though; everyone's different. It might work great for you. I've found nothing yet to help me, and my constipation has recently gotten worse (don't know why yet) and my Dr. got me back on Miralax. He also had me taking Senna every night, but that didn't do a whole lot. It's so frustrating; I wish I could find something that worked for me; I've been suffering with this for 20 years! Good luck to you.

I love it! I actually switched from Zelnorm before they took it off the market because it was not working well. Amitiza has been the best medication I have ever taken for constipation.

Thanks TXMOMOF3, How do you take it? Every day or just when needed? Does it work better than Miralax? Any bloating or gassiness? Kygirl
