 3  Ibs-c Took about 2 weeks-1 month to start working, worked PHENOMENAL from when it started working up until about 4 months in, went from eating pretty much a standard diet (no regulations) to eating all gluten and dairy free because my stomach just couldn't take it. Each day that goes by I notice the medicine working less and less. Don't expect long term relief. If you have the luxury of experiencing that, I'm jealous. However, I'll continue to be in pain while still eating "safe" foods *eyeroll*. F 20 6 months

 1  Constipation When I take this pill. Within the hour. I cramp up. I get nauseous. Gassy . Chills then hot. Dizzy. I am exhausted, thinking from the stomach pain.. I have even cut the pill in half. Still same problem. I do get diarrhea from it also. But not as bad now that I take a 1/2 of a pill. I honestly can't be taking this anymore. It saddens me that they gave me a 3 month supply that I had to pay for. Not even close to being worth it. Ask for samples... Let the company help you pay for it. F 51 49 days

 3  Ibs-c Rapid Weight gain It absolutely helps you go, especially when nothing else seems to work, but the swelling/rapid weight gain is not tolerable. It is a shame because the other drugs in its class (Linzess, Motegrity) have depression and anxiety side effects. Trulance also causes rebound constipation so be prepared to follow up with a stool softener or miralax. F 48 8 days

TRULANCE  (PLECANATIDE):  See also Warning section. Plecanatide is used to treat certain types of bowel problems (chronic idiopathic constipation, irritable bowel syndrome with constipation). It works by increasing fluid in your intestines and helping speed up movement of food through the gut. Plecanatide may improve stool texture and lessen symptoms such as straining and feelings of incomplete bowel movements. This medication must not be used in children younger than 6 years because of the risk of serious side effects.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
