Question: Can I get Linzess over the counter?
If you have one impaction how do you get started to get the bowels regular again?

Brief Answer:
No, it's not

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ma'am, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but unfortunately, linzess is a prescription drug that requires a prescription from your doctor...

Since you have already tried laxatives and no improvement occurred then you might need to schedule with your doctor for a manual fecal impaction or an enema to remove the dislodged and dried feces..

I hope you find this helpful...Feel free to ask further.
