Pharmacological Management

A systematic review on the pharmacological management of NBD (Johns et al. 2021) identified the medications used by people with SCI. These include oral laxatives, prokinetic agents, rectal laxatives (suppositories and enemas), and narcotic antagonists. However, findings show that these pharmacological agents have relatively little evidence to support their use in NBD management for the SCI population (Johns et al. 2021).
