OIC: Opioids block the bowl opioid receptors. Hence most of the standard medications really do not work well. Certainly you can try them. The best is a specific bowel opioid antagonist called MOVANTIK 25mg per day. This works well and does not cross the blood brain barrier so the pain relief will still be there. Another one is an injectable called Relistor (methylnaltrexone) which works the same way.
