I wrote the last post, and just have to say that taking Amitiza for a few weeks, did nothing for me. I just had a colonoscopy and have a follow up appointment next week. The Dr. gave me some Lizness samples, so I started that today. The Amitiza worked it seemed like for the first 2 days, but after that....nothing!!

I took 2 pills yesterday and just took my second pill today. ... Show Full Comment

Terrible... Should not be on the market! Doesn't work and makes you feel very nervous and anxious... Back to Dulcolax for me... I have tried them all but this drug is not good!

Began using this medication after surgery for a rectocele. I had fecal incontinence & chronic constipation prior to the surgery. Combined with the FODMAP diet (created at Stanford)my bowel movements have definitely improved. I am very active, run daily and now I have my life back!
