Comment from: 25-34 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: May 17

i am a 30 year old woman who sometimes will not have a bowel movement for 30 or more days. ive gained 30 pounds and feel sick all the time. i strated amitiza 3 days ago and other than the cramping ive had success with it. it is amazing to actually go to the bathroom and i heard its expensive and i would pay $500 a month for it if i can feel like a normal person again. this med might have saved me, emotionally and physically.

I have read many reviews from people complaining about the side effects. I am wondering how severe their IBS symptoms actually were if they find the side effects of this medication are worse than their IBS symptoms. I will say the first day on this medication was the worst. I had so much nausea & was either throwing up or running to the bathroom every few minutes with diarrhea. Then again- my body had not relieved itself completely for some time. I think the side effects that i feel the most is the diarrhea. I do take two pills as directed & the nausea is not a problem if i take with food as directed. Sometimes i get a head ache, but it is nothing compared to the horrendous pain i had from the IBS cramping. For me- I'm glad i dealt with the first couple days of "side effects". It has definitely made a difference in my life.
