Now 6 months into use of Linaclotide (Constella here in UK) Previously needed large doses of laxative every day - since starting Linaclotide, I have never needed a laxative, but also never had diarrhoea. Brilliant.

I had been taking a herbal tea every evening and 4-5 tablets of Senokot. Trying Constella now but seriously thinking of going back to what I was doing before as I only feel bloated, great fullness, and still constipated. At first it worked but I was wheening off my original products, but once I got off everything, except the Constella, nothing is happening. Little tiny bits. No satisfaction and quite uncomfortable. It does make a difference on how you will feel if you take on empty stomach.

I was on 145ug and had a difficult time with it. Always caused Major Diarrhea. I mean its effective, just causes "a fake stomach bug" with bloating, gas, and as mentioned severe diarrhea. I had to literally have medication to counteract the Linzess 2 hours after I took it to avoid prolonged hell.
