PATIENT INFORMATION

Recent Use of Opioids

Patients should be informed that they must disclose long-term or intermittent opioid pain therapy, including any use of opioids in the week prior to receiving ENTEREG.

Hospital Use Only

Patients should be informed that ENTEREG is for hospital use only for no more than 7 days after their bowel resection surgery.

Most Common Side Effects

Patients should be informed that the most common side effects with ENTEREG in patients undergoing bowel resection are constipation, dyspepsia, and flatulence.
