I asked my GI about
this and he said that personally his patients don't like it. He likes to try other things first like Miralax which I have had success with. He did mention that people did complain about
the side effects with it. But others have posted here that it works for them and others said it didn't or the side effects were just too much to bear. It's all about
the individual I think. Amitiza is fairly new to the market so like a new car on the market, maybe you should give it a few years to see what problems it may cause.
