Amitiza is a chloride channel activator. It increases fluid secretion in your intestines which increases intestinal muscle movement and helps make it easier to pass stools (bowel movements).

Amitiza is used to treat chronic constipation in adults. It is also used to treat irritable bowel syndrome in women with constipation as the main symptom.

Amitiza may also be used for other purposes not listed here.
