Opioids are directed to the patients suffering from the acute and chronic non-cancer pain. The opioids have numerous adverse intestinal effects, such as opioid-induced constipation. The opioids also affect the discharge of digestive enzymes that can sometime cause partial gastro paresis. Some of the most familiar symptoms of opioid-induced constipation includes, hard and dry stools, swelling, painful defecation, distention and protruded abdomen, tiredness, and loss of hunger. Some of the most common opioid-induced constipation therapy is the use of targeted therapies, OTC and off-label drugs and changing lifestyle.
Lack of awareness about the opioid-induced constipation in patients, and the doctors are one of the dominant causes of off-label and OIC medications as majorly used treatment methods. However, the efficiency of these drugs is only the half of some of the other therapies. The entrance of superficially acting mu-opioid receptor rivals such as Movantikv or Moventig are driving the opioid-induced constipation market. Movantikv or Moventig drug targets only the fundamental reason of opioid-induced constipation without affecting the effect of the opioid drugs.
