Uses

This medication is used to treat chronic constipation. It is used when other medications used to treat constipation (such as laxatives) have not provided relief. Prucalopride works by improving how well your stomach and intestines move food through the bowels during digestion.

How to use Motegrity

Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking prucalopride and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once a day. The dosage is based on your age, medical condition, and response to treatment. The usual dose is 2 milligrams per day.

Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day.

Tell your doctor if you do not get relief of constipation after 3 to 4 days.
