Comment:
I have been on this medication for about 2-3 weeks. I have previously used Zelnorm (with no results) and Bentyl (with horrible side effects). I found the side effect of nuasea is reduced if I take the medication with a large meal or large dairy portion. i am VERY pleased with the results so far.

I have had IBS for a few years and did well with Zelnorm. I tried Amitiza a few days ago and felt fine until my third dose when I almost passed out and felt very nauseous & weak.
