Immediately felt stick after taking this pill...nausea, headache, depressed and just overall felt bad. I've taken it for 3 days and still no results.

This worked really well restroom wise. But it caused me to not be able to breathe for a while. Ended up switching to linzess because I thought it was an allergy. It's a scary thing when you can't breathe. Linzess doesn't work nicely bathroom wise. I highly recommend this product anyway because not everyone reacts to medicine the same. It made bathroom time pure cathartic.

I am a 57 year old female in fairly good physical shape; however, I've had constipation issues all my life. I've been taking this for about 2 yrs and have been very satisfied with it. I do take it with Colace 2x per day. I tried once per day but with minimal results. I've always had gas problems so I cannot address whether this has increased or decreased with use of Amitiza (I take 24mcg 2x per day). Patiently waiting for generic as Amitiza is quite expensive even with my insurance.
