Enhanced colonic peristalsis is now possible with Motegrity, the only FDA-approved selective serotonin type 4 (5-HT4) receptor agonist for adults with CIC.1-4

SELECT IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Contraindications

  • Hypersensitivity to Motegrity. Reactions including dyspnea, rash, pruritus, urticaria, and facial edema have been observed.
  • Intestinal perforation or obstruction due to structural or functional disorder of the gut wall, obstructive ileus, severe inflammatory conditions of the intestinal tract such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and toxic megacolon/megarectum

Motegrity is a GI prokinetic that enhances colonic peristalsis (i.e. HAPCs), which increases bowel motility

In a pharmacodynamic study in patients with CIC, a single 2 mg dose of Motegrity increased the number of HAPCs during the first 12 hours vs. an osmotic laxative treatment.1

Treatment with Motegrity 4 mg once daily (2X max recommended dose of 2 mg) for 7 days increased the amplitude of HAPCs in healthy subjects without affecting colonic phasic activity vs. placebo.1

HAPCs=high amplitude propagating contractions
