Active Ingredient(s): Alvimopan
FDA Approved: * May 20, 2008
Category: Gastrointestinal

With the limited ability to cross the blood–brain barrier and reach the μ-opioid receptors of the central nervous system, the clinically undesirable effects of centrally acting opioid antagonists (like reversal of opioid-mediated analgesia) are avoided without affecting the intended blockade of μ-opioid receptors in the gastrointestinal tract.[1]&a...
