How Do Medications Induce Constipation?

Fruit-Eze can alleviate medication induced constipation.
  • Some Medications Slow Down Digestive Activity
    Constipation can be induced when autonomic processes in the gastrointestinal tract are delayed in their normal rhythmic function. This can result in slow stool transit which promotes constipation.
  • Some Medications Block Nerve Impulses
    Constipation can be induced when muscle contractions, enzymes and mucus are not stimulated into production or action by the brain. This can interfere with stool formation, stool transit, and promote constipation.
  • Some Medications Relax Intestinal Muscles
    Constipation is induced as peristalsis fails. Peristalsis is the rhythmic muscular action that moves food, nutrients and waste along the gastrointestinal tract. When colon muscles are not functioning normally, stools may be poorly formed.
  • Some Medications Lead to Dehydration
    When dehydration occurs lubrication in the colon is reduced, the colon lining deteriorates, and stool quality is poor. Stools move more slowly, becoming dried out and hard. This is constipation.
  • Some Medications Reduce Intestinal Flora
    Intestinal flora help to further breakdown waste, help to generate lubrication, cleanse the colon, and help protect the colon against infection. When natural populations of flora either die or get swept away in large quantities by stimulant laxatives, constipation can result.
  • Some Medications Harden Stools
    Some medications can bind liquids in stools. This makes stools hard and difficult to pass. This is constipation.
