What is Amitiza Used for?


Amitiza (Lubiprostone) is a prescription medication used to relieve stomach pain, bloating, straining, and produce softer and more frequent bowel movements in people with chronic idiopathic constipation and IBS with constipation. The active ingredient in the Amitiza capsule is Lubiprostone. Lubiprostone belongs to the group of medicine called laxatives (chloride channel activator). It works by increasing the fluid that flows into the bowel, which helps soften the stool allowing it to pass more easily.

Are there any Precautions and Drug Interactions for Amitiza?


Before using Amitiza capsules, it would be best to inform your doctor if you have drug or food allergies. Lubiprostone comes as a capsule to take by mouth. It is usually taken with food and water twice a day or depending on what your doctor's prescription says. Swallow the capsule whole; do not open, chew, or crush it. You should follow your prescription carefully and tell your doctor if you cannot swallow the capsule. Do not use more than what is prescribed for you. Increasing your dosage without consulting your doctor might worsen your condition. Lubiprostone may help to relieve your symptoms but will not cure your condition. You may experience dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting, especially when you get up suddenly from a lying or sitting position. These symptoms are more likely to occur when you begin taking this medicine or if you become dehydrated. Getting up slowly may help, also lying down may help dizziness or lightheadedness. It would be best if you did not drive or operate heavy machines whenever you are experiencing these side effects until you are sure you can do it. Continue to take Lubiprostone even if you feel well. Do not stop taking Lubiprostone without talking to your doctor. Your doctor will monitor your condition and tell you when you should stop taking Lubiprostone.

You should not take Amitiza and inform your doctor about your medical history, especially if you have or have had:
• Below 18 years of age;
• Intestinal obstruction or bowel blockage (or severe diarrhea);
• Liver diseases

You will need to have a negative pregnancy test before you begin to take Lubiprostone. It would help if you used birth control while taking this medication. Talk to your doctor about the method of birth control that is best for you. If you become pregnant or plan to become pregnant, you should inform your doctor while using the Amitiza capsule for your constipation. It is unknown if this drug passes into breast milk, but it may have undesirable effects such as causing diarrhea on a nursing infant. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.

Tell your doctor about all the medications you use, including prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, herbal products, and vitamin supplements to prevent drug interactions, which might be fatal to your health. This drug interaction may make your drug less effective, cause adverse effects, or potentiate other drugs' action. There may be a drug interaction between Amitiza and other drugs such as:
• Albuterol;
• Aspirin;
• Benadryl;
• Duloxetine;
• Gabapentin;
• Ibuprofen;
• Levothyroxine
