Opioid Induced Constipation Study


Opioids are very effective for treating and managing pain, however, taking prescription opiates for your pain can cause constipation. This side effect is called opioid induced constipation (OIC).

OIC can be extremely uncomfortable and occurs in many patients who receive opioid treatment to relieve their body pains.

Albuquerque Clinical Trials is conducting a research study to evaluate an investigational medication in the treatment of opioid induced constipation. In order to participate in the study, patients must meet the following criteria:

  • Male or female (cannot be pregnant or breastfeeding) patients
  • Patients between the age of 18-84 years old
  • Have been taking prescription pain medication for chronic pain (non-cancer related) for at least 8 weeks


Qualified participants will receive all study medication and study-related care from a dedicated team of medical staff at no cost. Health insurance is not required to participate. Compensation for time and travel is available.
