THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OCCASIONAL & CHRONIC CONSTIPATION
Sudden or short periods of difficult, infrequent, or incomplete bowel movements may be occasional constipation. Constipation symptoms that keep coming back or seem to last for a long time—more than 3 months—could indicate a medical condition known as chronic constipation.
YOUR CONSTIPATION COULD BE CHRONIC, NOT OCCASIONAL
Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Idiopathic Constipation (CIC) are types of chronic constipation. “Idiopathic” means the cause is unknown.
SYMPTOMS OF IBS-C
- Lumpy or hard stools
- Incomplete bowel movements
- Fewer than 3 bowel movements a week
- Abdominal (belly) pain
LINZESS IS FOR ADULTS WITH IBS-C OR CIC
LINZESS is a prescription treatment that helps relieve belly pain as well as overall abdominal symptoms, and lets you have more frequent and complete bowel movements that are easier to pass.
“LINZESS is a
once-daily capsule that helps adults proactively manage their symptoms.”
