Linaclotide/Linzees - feeling awful!

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hello everyone I am currently taking Linzees 290mg per day and I'm feeling awful.

I have liquid diarrhoea every day that comes on SUDDENLY where I have almost pooped myself a number of times. I have to go to the toilet to pass gas, cough or sneeze as it's always followed with some amount of liquid poop. I also keep regurgitating foods, sometimes I will just burp and a little acid will come up, sometimes I will burp and get a mouthful of food and sometimes I end up throwing up the whole meal.

I've barely eaten for days because I'm so tired of throwing up. I feel exhausted, shaky and pretty emotionally done.

I'm just wondering if this is normal for linzees in the first few months and if I should stick with it? Anyone else had similar experience?


*Just for background I have slow bowel transit & anismus and get frequent impactions. I had a mesh rectopexy last year to repair a stage 4 rectocele and a rectoanal intussusception but the surgery has failed *

    GI doctor put me on Linzees and I had to stop it. I couldn't make it to the toilet even if I was 2 feet away! I went back to my Senecot.
