Linaclotide is indicated for the management of specific gastrointestinal disorders, including Irritable Bowel Syndrome Constipation and Chronic Idiopathic Constipation. It functions by augmenting fluid levels within the intestines and facilitating the transit of waste products within the body. As a result, linaclotide may enhance stool consistency and alleviate symptoms such as abdominal bloating, discomfort, straining, and a sense of incomplete evacuation.

Uses and Dosage

Linaclotide is administered orally in the form of a capsule and is typically taken once daily, on an empty stomach, at least thirty minutes prior to the first meal of the day.

Adhere to a consistent dosing schedule and to follow the instructions provided on the prescription label closely. In case of any confusion, seek clarification from your healthcare provider or pharmacist. Take Linaclotide exactly as directed by your doctor and to not alter the dose or frequency of administration without prior medical consultation.

The capsules should be swallowed whole and should not be broken, chewed, or crushed.

Linaclotide effectively manages the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Idiopathic Constipation (CIC); it does not cure these conditions. Improvements in constipation symptoms may occur within one week of starting treatment, with longer duration for improvement in abdominal pain. Continue taking linaclotide as prescribed, even if you are feeling well.
