Published: Dec 30, 2014 | Pages: 45 | Publisher: GlobalData | Industry: Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

The discomfort of abdomen along with altered function of bowel is the general characteristic of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Irritable Bowel Syndrome is not a threat to life type disorder but it affects the quality of living of the sufferer. Even though it is inexperienced, Irritable Bowel Syndrome market is large in provision of volume with very few facts of pharmacotherapies specify for the cure of disorder and is categorised also by important unmet requirements.

LInzess is used for irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C) and chronic idiopathic constipation treatment in people above the age of 18 years. When the cause of the constipation is not known it is known as “idiopathic”.  Weather Linzes is safe if administered to the children below the age of 18 years is not clear as of now. But one thing is very clear; it cannot be given to children below 6 years of age. It is harmful to them.

Linzess should not be taken unless prescribed by the physician for the blockage of bowel. The doctor should be informed about the patients’ other medical conditions, being pregnant or want to plan for it because it is unknown if it proves harmful to the foetus. For the nursing mothers it can be harmful by passing through the milk to the baby which is yet to be discovered. Even all other medication should be declared to the doctor before taking this medicine, which should cover prescribed and non- prescribed medicine like herbal supplement and vitamins.  

Linzess has severe side effects which in most cases is diarrhea and can be really very sever at times. Mostly diarrhea starts within two weeks of starting this medicine. Hence if so, the patient should stop taking Linzess and consult the doctor immediately.  It should be administered as per the doctor’s advice and should be kept at room temperature away from the reach of any child. 

Ironwood Pharmaceuticals has discovered this product originally. The commercialization and development of Linzess was carried out by a number of authorizing conformities with Forest in US, Astellas in Japan, and Almirall in EU.  Linzess has been in phase III of expansion as prospective cure of IBS-C in Japan till the November 2014, and it is for that reason at present not accessible in the market.
