What is Linaclotide
Linaclotide is an orally administered, peptide agonist of guanylate cyclase 2C for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome. Chemically, it is a heterodetic cyclic peptide and consists of fourteen amino acids. The protein sequence is as follows: Cys Cys Glu Tyr Cys Cys Asn Pro Ala Cys Thr Gly Cys Tyr. There are three disulfide bonds which are located between Cys1 and Cys6; between Cys2 and Cys10; and between Cys5 and Cys13. FDA approved on August 30, 2012.
Linaclotide mechanism of action
Linaclotide is an agonist of guanylate cyclase-C (GC-C). Once linaclotide and its active metabolite binds to GC-C, it has local effect on the luminal surface of the intestinal epithelium. Activation of GC-C by linaclotide results in the intra- and extracellular increase of cyclic guanosine monophosphate concentrations (cGMP). This elevation of cGMP levels stimulates the secretion of chloride and bicarbonate into the intestinal lumen via activation of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) ion channel. Ultimately, linaclotide helps patients with IBS (especially with constipation) as GI transit is accelerated and the release of intestinal fluid is increased. In animal models, a decrease in visceral pain after administration of linaclotide may be observed. A decrease in the activity of pain-sensing nerves occurs as a result of an increase in extracellular cGMP.

What is a Linzess?
Linzess works by increasing the secretion of chloride and water in the intestines, which can soften stools and stimulate bowel movements.
Linzess is a prescription drug used to treat chronic constipation or chronic irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in adults who have constipation as their main symptom. The safety and effectiveness of Linzess has not been established in patients under the age of 18 years.
You should not use Linzess if you have a blockage in the intestines. Linzess should not be given to a child under 6 years of age. Lynacloid can cause severe dehydration in a child.
Take Linzess in the morning on an empty stomach, at least 30 minutes before your first meal. Do not crush, do not chew, break or open the capsule. Swallow it all. Stop using Linzess and consult a doctor immediately if you have severe or persistent diarrhea, severe stomach pain or black, bloody or tarry stools.
