Opioids are prescription medicines like codeine, hydrocodone, morphine, oxycodone, fentanyl, and tramadol that are used to treat pain. Opioid-induced constipation is one of the most common side effects of opioid use.1-3
Opioids block pain signals by attaching to something called mu-receptors in the brain and other parts of the central nervous system. However, opioids also attach to mu-receptors in the bowel, which can cause opioid-induced constipation.4
MOVANTIK is a prescription medicine used to treat constipation that is caused by prescription pain medicines called opioids, in adults with long-lasting (chronic) pain that is not caused by active cancer.5
MOVANTIK—one pill once a day—is specifically designed for OIC in adults with chronic non-cancer pain. It works by blocking opioids from binding to something called mu-receptors in your bowel.5
In clinical studies, MOVANTIK worked quickly, often within 6 to 12 hours of the first dose.5
