Lubiprostone is used to treat persistent bowel irregularity, or irregular bowel movements created by opioid pain medication. It is additionally used to deal with bowel irregularity triggered by opioids in adults with long-lasting pain that is not triggered by cancer, or in patients with lasting pain triggered by a previous cancer or its treatment that do not need regular increases in opioid dosage. This medicine works by enhancing the fluid secretion of the bowels, which helps ease the flow of feces and helps eliminate the symptoms linked with bowel irregularity. Lubiprostone is additionally used to treat cranky digestive tract disorder in women that have bowel irregularity as the primary symptom. This medication is available only with your doctor's prescription.
