When should I begin taking my prescription for Linzess?

Recommended Posts

I have IBS-C.  I usually don't go for 5 days.  Then, the cramps come and eventually after several hours, I will finally start to move my bowels.  But, having been so constipated for days, I always end up with 2 days of diarrhea, going maybe 4 to 5 times in the day with small amounts.  Then the cycle of constipation resumes.  When should I start the medication? Should I wait till the diarrhea stops?

There is another discussion on this forum that started off asking about whether they should take Linzess in the evening. The discussion asked about whether to take with, before or after a meal to reduce the amount of diarrhea. You might find some answers there.
