MeReC Bulletin - Management of Constipation

The National Prescribing Centre (NPC) has published a MeReC Bulletin (PDF) that reviews the management of constipation.

The review uses a case-based approach to provide an overview of the management of constipation in adults but also touches on the management of children, pregnant and breastfeeding women.

The review also provides a list of medications that may cause constipation, red flag symptoms that may indicate a more serious underlying problem and some treatment goals proposed in the Clinical Knowledge Summary (CKS).

Action: Clinicians who see patients with constipation will find this bulletin a useful summary of the management of this condition.
