Linzess (Linaclotide) - Overview
Linaclotide, marketed under the name Linzess, is a medication used in adults in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C) and chronic idiopathic constipation. People who might need a Linzess prescription can connect with a medical provider through Push Health who can prescribe Linzess if appropriate and safe to do so.
How Does Linzess Work?
What is Linzess used for? Linzess (linaclotide) belongs to a class of medications known as guanylate cyclase-C agonists and is a 14-amino acid peptide. Linzess is used in the management of constipation in adults with chronic idiopathic constipation and irritable bowel syndrome with constipation - somewhat similar to dicyclomine. Linaclotide, along with some of its metabolites, bind to the surface of the intestines, resulting in metabolic changes which increase the secretion of chloride and bicarbonate into the intestinal lumen. Through these secretions, linaclotide is thought to increase transit of fluids in the intestines and reduce pain. Following administration, the systemic availability of Linzess is low and plasma concentrations of linaclotide are not measurable. Some linaclotide is excreted in the stool.
