Movantik Indication

Movantik (Naloxegol) belongs to a group of medications known as opioid receptor antagonists. It is used by adults with non-cancer pain to treat Constipation caused by prescription pain medications called opioids (e.g., Codeine, Morphine, Hydromorphone). If laxatives are not working, Movantik (Naloxegol) can be used to help produce a bowel movement.

It works by preventing opioid medications from binding to certain receptors in the intestinal tract. It generally does not reduce the pain-relieving effects of opioid pain medications.

Movantik (Naloxegol) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Movantik (Naloxegol) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Movantik (Naloxegol) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Movantik (Naloxegol) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Movantik (Naloxegol), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Movantik (Naloxegol) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Movantik (Naloxegol) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Movantik (Naloxegol) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Movantik Dosage

The recommended dose of Movantik (Naloxegol) is 25 mg taken by mouth, once daily. Depending on any side effects you experience, your doctor may suggest a lower dose.

It is recommended that Movantik (Naloxegol) be taken on an empty stomach in the morning. Therefore, it should be taken 1 hour before the first meal of the day or 2 hours after.

When you first start taking Movantik (Naloxegol), stop taking other laxatives until you determine how well Movantik (Naloxegol) works for you. You may have a bowel movement within 12 hours after taking the first dose of Movantik (Naloxegol).

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Movantik (Naloxegol) exactly as prescribed by your doctor.

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is less than 12 hours until your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Movantik (Naloxegol) at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
