      Hi. I'm Bruce. I take Linzess, 290 every day. I'm STILL constantly constipated. I haven't pooped in 9 days. It's time to get cleaned out. Early this morning I started with 45mls of MOM. This was at 420 am. Then I went to bed hoping it would produce a BM. I woke up still constipated at 630am. I continued waiting, hoping it would work. Then at 145pm I took 30mls of lactulose. STILL NO BM. Then at 515pm I took a magnesium citrate tablet. NOW, at 700pm I still havent had a BM and now I'll take 45mls more of Milk of magnesia and hope and pray that I will finally GO. I suffer this because I have to take high doses of narcotics for my hip pain. What a life. I'm 70. I'll continue this story as it progresses. I'm 9 days constipated so far. I've curtailed my food intake to 1 meal a day.

      Yep. I wouldn’t start at 290. Start low & go up as needed. The more liquids you drink the more diarrhea & water poops you will have. It will cause straight up water to come out of your colon, so don’t take it unless you can be home & able to go to the toilet multiple times. I don’t recommend drinking more than 16 Oz of water before or after you’ve taken it. Just enough water to get things moving.

      I took my Linzess at night and thought it worked well. I realized that it caused me to have gas and it would wake me up. True story. 🫣 LOL!

      Very much so! That was the dose I started with. I cut it back to 145 mg. It’s much easier on my digestive tract with positive results.

      Geez reading the comments makes me feel like mutant. Im on 290 mg and still have to take a laxative of some kind (stimulant or non) every single day to go to the bathroom at all 😬
