Symproic Will Join Movantik and Relistor for Opioid-Induced Constipation

Symproic (sim-PROH-ik, naldemedine) will be another option to treat adults with opioid-induced constipation.

It's a once-daily oral "opioid antagonist" similar to Movantik (naloxegol) or oral Relistor (methylnaltrexone).

They all block opioid effects in the gut to increase motility...without affecting pain relief.
