It may occur again with other doses. However, you may not know the difference between this reaction and a rare severe reaction that also causes trouble breathing and chest pain. Get medical help immediately if you develop any.

Amitiza Directions:

Amitiza comes as a capsule you take by mouth. It is available in 24 mcg. The maximum recommended dosage is 48 mcg per day. The adult dosage for chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC) and opioid-induced constipation (OIC) is 24 mcg twice daily. Do not take more than what is instructed by your doctor. If you have liver damage, your doctor may prescribe a reduced dosage of 16 mcg twice daily or 8 mcg twice daily. For irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C), the dosage is 8 mcg twice daily. If you have severe liver damage, your doctor may prescribe 8 mcg once daily. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. But if it is almost time for your next dose, do not use the missed dose but go back to your normal time. Do not take extra medicine to make up for the missed dose. Take this medication by mouth with food and water, and swallow the medication whole. Do not break or chew the medication. Drink at least 6 to 8 glasses (8 ounces each) of liquid each day. This will help make the stool softer. The dosage may vary and is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Therefore, make sure to take the dosage your doctor prescribes for you. Your doctor will determine the best dosage to suit your needs. Take this medicine exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not take more of it, do not take it more often, and do not take it for a longer time than your doctor ordered. It may increase the chance of side effects.
