    I'm looking for Linzess Reivews - side effects etc.

    HI. I have IBS C and am at the point where I take laxatives of some sort everyday. I was on some Chinese herbs and triphala that were working well until an antibiotic completely destroyed my GI tract. No amount of probiotics seems to work. So....I am left either taking dulcolax or some form of senna/aloe combination daily. My Dr. told me to either do Linzess or Amitza. I took the Amitza pills and had HORRIBLE side effects. I was the lucky person who experiences the shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, etc. My next option is the Linzess. I have read a lot of people having pain and rapid weight gain from this medicine. Does anyone have any experiences?

    Amatizia also gave me bad cramps and did not work. I was hesitant to try Linzess but it really works well. No cramping or bloating. I actually take 3 /145s at night. We have played with 290 but found that 1 was not enough, 2 was too much. My insurance won't cover both strengths in one month so I now take 3 of the 145. I tried taking 2 at night and 1 in am but not the right fit for me. If I'm traveling or get out of routine I occasionally take a senna or two also but when back on track just use Linzess. I have loved this product.
