Opioid Induced Constipation

SYMPTOMS

One of the most common side effects of the use of opioids. OIC occurs when the use of opioids reduces the gastrointestinal tract’s motility, making bowel movements difficult. This can result in straining, having hard or lumpy stools or the sensation of incomplete evacuation, (OIC is a different condition than functional constipation).
