Yes : Hi, yes u can. There is no real interaction that we know of. Having said that a few normal pts who have tried probiotics describe diarrhea probably as a consequence of the change in the flora of the intestine. So monitor for the same and discuss with the physician who prescribed the linzess. Hope this helps.
