Ironwood and Forest announced that Lizness (linaclotide) capsules are now available for the treatment of adult men and women with irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C) or chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC).

Linaclotide, a guanylate cyclase-C (GC-C) agonist, acts locally in the intestine with minimal systemic exposure. It helps relieve constipation by helping bowel movements occur more often. In IBS-C, it may also help ease abdominal pain.

Linzess is available in 145mcg and 290mcg dosage strength capsules in 30-count bottles.
