What is Amitiza?
Amitiza (lubiprostone) is prescribed to provide relief to those suffering from chronic gastrointestinal disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C) or chronic idiopathic constipation that is not caused by diet. Amitiza is also used to treat individuals suffering from constipation due to opioid-based pain management or opioid addiction.
In addition to relieving constipation, Amitiza may also be effective in helping to control bloating, improve stool evacuation, and relieve abdominal pain.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Managing a chronic GI condition such as IBS and severe constipation can be very stressful, even if money weren’t an issue. And that stress is exacerbated by financial worries stemming from high U.S. prescription drug costs.
Financial difficulties need not stand in the way of receiving vital medication, so we’ve made it our business to build bridges between those who need help and those who can provide it.
How does Amitiza Work?
Amitiza is a chloride channel-2 activator. Chloride channels in the intestinal tract play a key role in regulating fluid balance. An adequate amount of fluid is needed in the intestines to facilitate the passage of waste.
Amitizia stimulates the CIC-2 chloride channels in certain GI cells to produce a secretion that increases the fluid level in the intestines. Amitiza’s ability to counteract the antisecretory effects of opioids is what makes it effective in treating opioid-related constipation.
