Linzess (linaclotide) Indications

Linzess, generic name linaclotide, is an oral prescription medication used for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome with constipation. This oral medication improves the texture of the stool and reduces symptoms, such as abdominal discomfort, bloating, straining, and feelings of incomplete bowel movements.

Linzess is also prescribed for chronic idiopathic constipation. This bowel condition is characterized by infrequent, incomplete, or difficult defecation.

Linzess is classified as a guanylate cyclase-C agonist. It works by increasing the levels of intracellular and extracellular cyclic guanosine monophosphate, which expedites gastrointestinal transit.
