Amitiza side effect

My daughter began amitiza and it has worked wonderfully, however, she is spotting in between periods.  Is this common?

Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  I don't believe this is a side effect of amitiza.  I would recommend seeing a doctor about this.

My daughter has been on Amitiza 8 mg but today it was increased to 24 mg because of chronic constipation.  She is only 9 years old.  I had to give her an enema and it didn't work.  I can't figure out what keeps binding her up.

As your question is a little bit different that sskakj's question, I would recommend posting your question as it's own post.
