Bloating while on Linzess
I started taking Linzess about a month ago. I feel like I am about 3 months pregnant due to the bloating / abdominal distension that I experience. It really helps my IBS-C and Idiopathic Constipation, but I am wondering if this will go away after taking it for awhile.
Linzess for IBS-Constipation
Linzess- constipation IBS
I suffered from chronic constipation for a year, and stretched my colon out from all the poop that was stuck in there. This irritated my bowel and caused Irritable bowl syndrome, and now have many food allergies/intolerances. My doctor told me to take a couple scoops of miralax every night to go to the bathroom the next morning. This made my BM running and I did go, but that wasn't my problem in the first place, I could go I just couldn't empty out. So My doctor put me on Lynzess and it worked great. I drank a lot of water wit the pill and it gave me really bad diarrhea, and really flushed everything out. I was fine with this because I could not stand the thought of being full of poop. I was really nausea for about 2 hours after I took the pill and flushed out but it went away after 4 hours. After 4 months I started to bloat really bad after taking the pill and flushing out, my doctor told me not to drink so much water with it so it wont flush me out but give me a real BM. SO hopefully that will work. I haven't tried it yet so...
