What is Linzess?
Linzess (linaclotide) was developed for the treatment of digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C) and chronic idiopathic constipation. It relieves the symptoms of IBS-C and chronic constipation, which includes abdominal bloating, abdominal pain, discomfort during bowel movements, and feeling as though bowel movements are incomplete.
Taking Linzess carries a risk of dehydration in adults and children, and it is not prescribed for children under age six. This medication has not been tested on pregnant women, and levels of breast milk excretion are unknown.
Linzess is taken in the morning at least 30 minutes prior to the first meal of the day. It is important to swallow the capsule whole, but if that is not possible, the contents of the capsule can be emptied out into a spoonful of applesauce or water.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Simplefill helps those struggling with medication costs. Managing a chronic illness that causes discomfort is difficult enough without the additional stress and anxiety of paying for costly medications. Such stress only makes dealing with chronic illness far more frustrating, and it can even make the symptoms worse. Simplefill can help by searching all available discount and assistance programs to help ensure you get the best possible price on your Linzess prescription.
How does Linzess Work?
Linzess mimics the actions of guanylin and uroguanylin, which are two amino acids produced in the body. Linzess binds itself to the surface of intestinal cells where it is minimally absorbed, meaning it is undetectable in blood tests at normal dosage levels.
Linzess increases the body’s production of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), which promotes the introduction of chloride, water, and bicarbonate into the intestinal system. This increases water levels in the digestive tract and helps move waste material through the digestive tract.
