Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.
There are no reported interactions taking them together however, sometimes it may lead to overt diarrhea, take half the dose of magnesium citrate with linzess or in other words use it cautiously to avoid diarrhea.
Hope this helps.
Please do leave a positive rating for the service.
Best wishes.
