Talk to your doctor about IBS-C
(Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Constipation)
IBS-C patients typically experience constipation with abdominal (belly) symptoms. Symptoms of IBS-C can include lumpy or hard stools, fewer than 3 bowel bowel movements a week, incomplete bowel movements, belly pain, discomfort, and bloating. Symptoms are long-lasting and keep coming back. Take this summary to your doctor and together, you can find a treatment that’s right for you.

It’s important to talk to your doctor about all of your symptoms. Only a doctor can determine whether they’re consistent with IBS-C. Together, you can decide if LINZESS® (linaclotide) may be right for you. LINZESS is a prescription medication for adults with IBS-C. LINZESS is not a laxative, and is proven to treat multiple symptoms of IBS-C. It helps you have more frequent and complete bowel movements and helps relieve overall abdominal symptoms—belly pain, discomfort, and bloating*.
