Amitiza (Lubiprostone) 24mcg, 60 Caps

Product Details

Amitiza (lubiprostone) is a medication used to treat chronic constipation, defined as infrequent bowel movements, difficult passage of stools, or incomplete evacuation of stools. It works by increasing fluid secretion in the intestines, making it easier for patients to pass stools. The medication is classified as a chloride channel activator, activating the chloride channels on the intestinal lining, leading to increased secretion of fluid and electrolytes into the intestines.

In addition to treating chronic constipation, Amitiza is also used to treat constipation caused by opioid (narcotic) pain medication. Opioids can slow down the digestive system and make it difficult to pass stools, leading to constipation. By increasing fluid secretion in the intestines, Amitiza can help alleviate this side effect of opioid use.

Amitiza may also treat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in women who primarily experience constipation as their main symptom. IBS is a chronic condition that affects the large intestine and causes symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and changes in bowel movements. The medication can help relieve constipation associated with IBS and improve overall bowel function.

It is important to note that Amitiza is for use only in adults and should be taken as a healthcare professional prescribes. Patients should not exceed the recommended dose or take the medication longer than prescribed. Common side effects of Amitiza include nausea, diarrhea, headache, and abdominal pain. Patients should speak to their healthcare provider if they experience any side effects or have concerns about taking the medication.
