Resotran (REH-zo-tran), a new GI motility agent for chronic constipation
Women will be trying Resotran (REH-zo-tran), a new GI motility agent for chronic constipation.
Think of it as a safer version of cisapride (Prepulsid) or tegaserod (Zelnorm). These were taken off the market due to cardiac toxicity.
Resotran (prucalopride) is more selective for 5-HT4 serotonin receptors in the GI tract that stimulate motility.
