    Trulance

    I hope that I don't jinx myself here, but I thought that I would share my results with Trulance. Before taking it I had decent results with Linzess but then my insurance quit paying for it, so I started taking Amitiza. It did not work very well and I was about to call my Gastro when I got a letter from my insurance saying they would no longer pay for it. So I chose Trulance from the list that they would cover. Anyhow, since I have been taking it I have been having regular bowel movements that only require extraction from the rectal vault. I haven't needed senna or a suppository in 2-3 weeks.

    I was wondering if anyone else had tried it and had similar results. I realize that I have barely been taking it a month but so far I would certainly recommend it.

    I personally would prefer the suppository emptying my colon than extraction but your choice. I have no experience with Trulance. Thanks for a positive note! CWO

      My colon is empty, the stool just needs pulled out because my anal sphincter doesn't relax and let it make a mess. Its like my bowels are working like they used to pre-injury, except now my anus needs a little coaxing and since I'm lying on my side, the poop needs help getting out.
