Can LOTRONEX® help improve control of bowel urgency?
Fewer “now means now” moments with LOTRONEX
Bowel urgency is a term that doctors use to describe the feeling of needing to go immediately. Women suffering from bowel urgency may do some of the following:
- Keep a change of clothes in the car in case of accidents
- Map out bathrooms before leaving the house
- Stay home to be close to the bathroom
A 12-week study was done to see how well LOTRONEX improved control of bowel urgency*
At week 12, women reported 6 out of 7 days with satisfactory control, versus 5 out of 7 with sugar pills.* *In this study, 532 women took Lotronex and 269 took sugar pills.

Can LOTRONEX® reduce the frequency of diarrhea?
LOTRONEX is proven to reduce the frequency of bowel movements for some women
Does it seem like you’re in and out of the bathroom all day sometimes? Unlike bowel urgency, which describes a feeling, the frequency of bowel movements means the number of times you go in a day. LOTRONEX is proven to lower the number of bathroom trips for some women.
IBS is about one-and-a-half times more common in women than in men.* Three in ten with IBS have diarrhea.* One in four cases is considered severe.*
*In this 12-week study, 177 women took LOTRONEX and 176 took placebo.
LOTRONEX may also give some women less diarrhea and more firm bowel movements.
