Ibsrela (Tenapanor Hydrochloride) is used in adults (18 years of age and older) to treat a condition called irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C). Ibsrela is a medication in a class called an inhibitor of the sodium / hydrogen exchanger 3 (NHE3). It reduces the amount of sodium that your bowels absorb. This increases the release of fluid into the bowels. Ibsrela eases abdominal pain and increases the number of bowel movements. You should notice improvement within the first week of taking Ibsrela. Do not give Ibsrela to children who are less than 6 years of age. Ibsrela can cause severe diarrhea in children. This can lead to severe dehydration (loss of large amounts of water and salt in the body). Take Ibsrela exactly as your doctor tells you to take it. Swallow the Ibsrela tablet whole. Do not crush or chew the tablet. Take Ibsrela immediately before breakfast or your first meal of the day. Then take your next tablet immediately before dinner.
