Amitiza is made up of lubiprostone (a chloride channel activator) that comes in 24mcg (micrograms) oral tablets. These tablets are usually pink or orange in color.

Amitiza is used for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome as well as chronic idiopathic constipation in adults. This includes constipation caused by narcotic medications used by those with ongoing pain due to medical conditions, excluding cases with cancer.

Using Amitiza will help symptoms such as bloating, abdominal discomfort, and make going to the bathroom less uncomfortable (by improving stool texture, decreasing the need to strain and  lessening the feeling of not completely relieving yourself once finished). Lubiprostone works by increasing the amount of fluid within your intestines, resulting in a more easy passage of the stool.

Always follow directions given to you by your doctor. Never take more or less of a dosage than directed.

The average recommended dose is twice daily. It is suggested this medication be taken with food and water to help prevent nausea.
