Don't Jump to Trulance for Constipation
Trulance (TROO-lans, plecanatide) will be promoted for managing chronic constipation in adults.
Think of it as similar to Linzess (linaclotide) and Amitiza (lubiprostone). All of these Rx meds increase fluid secretion in the intestines to help speed up GI transit.
They lead to about one or two more bowel movements per week in patients with chronic constipation...but cost about $12/day.
