It definitely helped me with irritable bowel, but did Not unconstipate me. I've taken it 3 times for a duration of at least 10 days each time. Each time I gained 3-5 pounds and unless I take it with a laxative, I don't go.

This is my miracle drug, I've had constipation problems for over 10 years. Take 17 mg of miralax twice daily, worked a little, started Linzees 1 week ago and the 1st day I was so released of constipation. I love this medicine. After 1 week taking this medicine I'm so happy.

All my life I have struggled with constipation! I work out everyday and eat healthy. I can eat a ton of fiber, salads, etc. and still not go to the bathroom! Bloated and pain from not going! I have taken this medicine for 3 days now, 290 mcg. First day my stomach cramped and rumbled loud all day with extreme bloating, by mid-day I was running to the bathroom and it felt so good to get it all out! ... Show Full Comment
