Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
Relistor is methylnaltrexone for opioid induced constipation.
if you still have constipation and don't have bowel movements once a day, I would go back on your regimen of dulcolax and stool softeners and whatever you took before to help your bowel movements.
oxycodone can be very constipating
you want to make sure you keep having bowel movements once a day
make sure you drink plenty of water and fluids as well.
do call up your doctor and let them know that the injection didn't work
let me know if you have questions.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
