My dr gave me sample pills to try. I quickly learned that about 1/8 of a pill was all I needed to produce a bowel movement. I take that after lunch every other day and it works within three or four hours. I do need to drink more water or risk a headache. But for me that’s not much of a downside.

Severe diarrhea and stomach pain continues for 4-5 hours after taking the medication. I stopped taking it after a couple of days after consulting my doctor. I medicine is worse than the condition it is supposed to help.

Better than Amitiza and Linzess, however, I don't get the diarrhea or even a movement as of yet by itself. I have taken it for a week now.

Trulance is a God send for patients with IBS-C. I've had problems all my life with constipation. Trulance works by drawing water into your intestines. And creates a bowel movement for me within 20 minutes of taking with 20oz of water. I go days without a bowel movement. Not anymore. Once to three times a day, I have a movement. It's the best thing for people with IBS-C!

What a rollercoaster this medicine has brought me on! Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, you really just have to figure out a routine that works for you. Take this BEFORE YOU EAT!!!! Or else there will be a violent and uncomfortable WW3 in your toilet. When I first started I took this every day as soon as a woke up and gave myself 4 hours to do my ‘poop routine.’ You might not need 4 hours always but sometimes you will be very grateful you have yourself time. I’ve been able to wean myself off of every day and my ibs is very manageable now! I take it about 3x a week, and I’m even able to have BMs every day since it’s still in my system ! Like I said, you really just need time to figure out a good routine with this medicine. It works great for me :)

Don't let the bad reviews scare you. I take half a pill every other day and within 2 hours have full evacuation and total relief! The pills are crumbly so I use a pill splitter. I had major bloating the first couple times I took it but never any pain or nausea. Dont trust a fart though! Lol. I stay home for a few hours after I take the pill just incase if I do have a few trips to bathroom but usually I am empty after one or two quick trips. Trulance has given me relief after many years of pain and struggling. Give it a chance guys. Most people side effects go away or greatly reduce after a week or two. I finally have my life back!! Give it a try!

This worked gently and effectively for me, but I do need to stop taking it because it is giving me a severe throbbing headache. I too needed to also take citrucel fiber and a stool softener for Trulance to be effective. It did not give me intestinal cramping. I took this medicine for two and 1/2 weeks.

I do not feel it being very effective. It creates explosive diarrhea within an hour or so of taking it and abdominal bloating too. I usually have to use miralax with it as well. Then Iâ??m still feeling bloated after that and often uncomfortable overnight. ð??

I hate this medicine. I bloat for 2 days then have explosive diarrhea for hours on third day. If this doesn't improve quickly. I'm changing meds.

Better than Linzess and Amitza for sure. I had to take step therapy in order for insurance to cover it.

This worked gently and effectively for me, but I do need to stop taking it because it is giving me a severe throbbing headache. I too needed to also take citrucel fiber and a stool softener for Trulance to be effective. It did not give me intestinal cramping. I took this medicine for two and 1/2 weeks.
