    What about Miralax?

    Is there really a need in the market for Linaclotide? Just curious -- I'm trying to understand what market the drug in intending to target? Clearly interest by Forest indicates the potential, can someone more knowledgeable help me to understand this? From what I gather people can take Miralax for years without any adverse affects.

    • Huge market of patients already on Miralax that continue to have IBS/chronic constipation.

      I laugh when people try to say Plecanatide is better because it doesn't cause diarrhea as a side effect. This hardcore group of IBS/CC sufferers would love to have diarrhea. The only reason Plecanatide didn't have it is because it doesn't work as well.
