What has NICE said?

Naloxegol (Moventig) is recommended as a possible treatment for people with opioid‑induced constipation that has had an inadequate response to laxatives.

What does this mean for me?

If you have opioid‑induced constipation, and your doctor thinks that naloxegol is the right treatment, you should be able to have the treatment on the NHS.

Naloxegol should be available on the NHS within 3 months of the guidance being issued.
