There is a pill out for constipation caused by opioids. I need it found out. There also is a medical term given to this condition. It's new and I saw it on tv earlier this month. But I can't remember what it was called. I need it so I can tell my doctor to prescribe me the medicine for my constipation caused by the opioids that I take for pain from him.
Can you help me?

Hello, April! How are you?

Opioid Induced Constipation.

The name of one of the medications is Relistor.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, abdominal pain, diarrhea and tremors.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Mpathia RI: Newest opioid induced constipation med is Movantik, Relister and one other. The bad news is you pay $200.00 at the very least with every one of them.... If you qualify you can get help paying from maker. I believe it is Astra Zenica I spelled it wrong, but that is it. They are all very expensive and many will not be eligible for help. Great, huh? You got an extra couple of hundred? I know I don't :-)
