    IBSc Irritable bowl with constipation

    I've had problems with constipation for about two years and have used laxatives or the little Fleet bottle to get started, but recently it's been worse - can't go unless I do the above. So I heard about Linzess and asked my doctor about it. He gave me some samples. Some 72mg and some 144mg. The 144mg cause diarrhea so I stopped them. Later I tried the 72mg and it seems to be helping - but it's very expensive and when the samples run out I don't know what I'll do. The medicine is to cause more liquid in the bowel. My drinking a lot of water didn't help but this medicine does. I'm hoping the cost will drop way down. I would love to hear if anyone else has had this problem and found an inexpensive and helpful solution.
