the new drug, Linzess (lin-ZESS, linaclotide)

You'll soon see the new drug, Linzess (lin-ZESS, linaclotide).

Think of Linzess as similar to Amitiza (lubiprostone). Both are used to relieve constipation in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or chronic constipation.

Expect Linzess to be saved for patients who don't respond to fiber, laxatives, and other constipation remedies.
