What is Linzess?
Linzess (linaclotide), known as Constella outside of the U.S and Mexico, is used to treat bowel conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C) and chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC). It increases the amount of fluid in the intestines, softening stool, and it allows food to pass through the body more easily. It helps to relieve uncomfortable symptoms such as unfinished bowel movements, bloating and abdominal pain.
