Indications

Movantik is a medication used to reduce constipation caused by opioid pain medication taken for chronic pain.

Naloxegol is a peripherally acting opioid receptor antagonist that blocks opioid effects in your gastrointestinal tract without decreasing the pain medication’s analgesia. This action makes Movantik an effective way to relieve constipation for non-cancer-related opioid pain relief treatment.

This medication has been found to be an effective and well-tolerated treatment for constipation caused by opioid medication. Movantik can be used long-term to aid with symptoms of chronic pain treatment without reducing the effectiveness of the opioid medication.

Uses and Dosage

The dose of Movantik that is prescribed will vary depending on the person being treated. Follow your doctor’s directives and read packaging labels carefully when using new medications.

  • Take on an empty stomach an hour or two before your first meal
  • Stop using other laxatives before taking Movantik
  • Adults are recommended to take 25mg once daily
  • Doses can range lower to 12.5mg due to tolerability or renal impairment
  • Contact your doctor if constipation continues after 3 days of treatment
