Amitiza Uses

How Does Amitiza Work?

Amitiza works by activating chloride channels in the intestine. This helps stimulate the flow of intestinal fluid, which, in turn, stimulates the movement of food through the intestines.

Amitiza Use in Children or Teens

Amitiza is not approved for use in children or teens under the age of 18, as it has not been studied in these age groups. Talk with your child's healthcare provider about the potential risks and benefits of using the drug in children.

Off-Label Amitiza Uses

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Amitiza for something other than the conditions discussed in this article. Using Amitiza to treat IBS in men would be an off-label use.
