Here is My Question:
Could Linzess be a good solution for constipation?
Linzess is new to me and I had to look this up. It is FDA approved for constipation of unknown cause/irritable bowel syndrome. It apparently works by stimulating the secretion of chloride and bicarbonate into the intestines which leads to more fluid in and faster movement of stool. It is a prescription and is obtained from a physician after other causes of constipation are ruled out. It may be helpful for your situation, but should be discussed with your prescribing physician. For more conservative (non-prescription) options, please see my blog on gastrointestinal complaints in MS (Read Blog).
