What Can You Do?

If you're considering taking Lotronex for irritable bowel syndrome, make sure you discuss the risks thoroughly with your doctor.

As debilitating as IBS can be, it isn't life-threatening—while side effects associated with Lotronex can be fatal.

Lotronex is approved only for certain IBS sufferers. Specifically, it's for women in cases where all of the following apply:

·         The major problem is diarrhea rather then constipation.

·         The condition has been present for at least six months.

·         A doctor has ruled out other medical problems.

·         Other treatments have failed to help.

·         The condition causes painful cramps or bloating or the inability to control bowel movements.


You should never take Lotronex if you:

·         Have ever had serious constipation or bowel blockage problems.

·         Have ever had ischemic colitis or problems with blood flow to your bowels.

·         Have ever had blood clots, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, or diverticulitis.

If you currently take Lotronex, make sure you fit the profile above.


Also, make sure you know the warning signs of ischemic colitis. Caused by lack of blood flow to the colon, ischemic colitis is one of the serious side effects of Lotronex. Symptoms can include:

·         Fever

·         Bloody stools

·         Rectal bleeding

·         Nausea

·         Vomiting

·         Diarrhea

·         New or more severe abdominal pain

·         Low back pain

However, you should also be aware that the warning signs of ischemic colitis are not always obvious, and may not appear at all.

Another serious side effect of Lotronex is severe constipation, which can cause a ruptured colon and even death.


If you experience any of the problems associated with Lotronex, talk to your doctor immediately.

And if you or a loved one have been injured by taking Lotronex, contact the office of Monheit Law promptly to see if you have a legal case.

Each state sets strict deadlines for people who have been injured to file a lawsuit, and the deadlines vary from state to state. So it's important that you get legal advice as soon as possible.
