What is Pizensy?
Pizensy is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Braintree Laboratories, Inc. It is an osmotic laxative used to treat chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC) in adults.
CIC is a GI disorder where symptoms include fewer than three bowel movements a week and hard-to-pass or incomplete bowel movements, with no identifiable cause. Patients who received Pizensy experienced more of an increase in the number of complete spontaneous bowel movements (CSBMs) than those who were given a placebo.
What doses of Pizensy are available?
Pizensy is available as an oral solution, in the following doses: 280 grams and 560 grams in multi-dose bottles, or 10 grams of lactitol in unit-dose packets.
The recommended adult dose is 20 grams orally once daily, with meals. The dosage should be reduced to 10 grams once daily for persistent loose stools.
