Opioid Induced Constipation

Opioids are effective pain relievers, but often have the side effect of constipation. These medicines affect the gastrointestinal tract in a variety of ways. Opioids increase the amount of time it takes stool to move through the gastric system. This results in food that fails to travel through the digestive tract.
