Procalopride Drug Information

Constipation is a condition in which defecation is difficult and the frequency of defecation is less than normal. Constipation occurs due to poor diet and drinking insufficient amounts of water or delayed defecation. Pregnancy, lack of exercise, and some medications, such as painkillers, can cause constipation. Even constipation can be a side effect of certain medications or illnesses. Although changes in lifestyle and diet (increased fiber intake) can help relieve constipation, some laxatives such as procalopride are very helpful for people with constipation.

Procalopride activates the intestinal muscles, increases bowel movement, and allows the stool to move in your bowel, making bowel movements easier.
