This American Gastroenterological Association guideline is intended to support practitioners in decisions about the use of medications for the pharmacological management of IBS-C and is an update of a prior technical review and guideline. Methods The Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation framework was used to assess evidence and make recommendations. The technical review panel prioritized clinical questions and outcomes according to their importance for clinicians and patients and conducted an evidence review of the following agents: tenapanor, plecanatide, linaclotide, tegaserod, lubiprostone, polyethylene glycol laxatives, tricyclic antidepressants, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, and antispasmodics. The Guideline Panel reviewed the evidence and used the Evidence-to-Decision Framework to develop recommendations. Conclusions The panel agreed on 9 recommendations for the management of patients with IBS-C. The panel made a strong recommendation for linaclotide (high certainty) and conditional recommendations for tenapanor, plecanatide, tegaserod, and lubiprostone (moderate certainty), polyethylene glycol laxatives, tricyclic antidepressants, and antispasmodics (low certainty). The panel made a conditional recommendation against the use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (low certainty). >> View the full guideline >> View a PDF of the guideline Copyright © 2022 Elsevier Inc. except certain content provided by third parties.
mrcasjen posted a topic in IBS Medications, Medical Foods and Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT)I have just been prescribed Linzess for my chronic C, it is so bad right now I can't eat without pain, seriously impacted throughout my colon. I do not want to take it during the day due to my work schedule. I am thinking I could take it when I get off work at 4pm since we don't eat till the earliest 5 but sometimes as late as 7. My stomach should be empty since I won't eat since lunch. I don't go to bed till around 10pm so should have plenty of time to clean out. Thoughts on whether this would be ok to do or not?
