Common side effects

The safety of Trulance has been well studied

Tell your doctor if you experience any side effects while taking Trulance. In clinical studies, 5% of people with Chronic Idiopathic Constipation (CIC) and 4.3% of people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Constipation (IBS-C) taking Trulance experienced diarrhea versus 1% in placebo (sugar pill) group.

Diarrhea is the most common side effect and can sometimes be severe. Diarrhea often begins within the first 4 weeks of Trulance treatment. If you get severe diarrhea, stop taking Trulance and call your doctor right away.

Do not take Trulance if a doctor has told you that you have a bowel blockage (intestinal obstruction).

Studies indicated that Trulance is not expected to interact with other medications.

Keeping your doctor in the know

Keep an open dialogue with your doctor about your experiences taking Trulance. Talking openly about your bowel movements, no matter how awkward it may seem, is essential to helping your doctor find a successful treatment that works for you.
