Constipating Agents

Untreated constipation can lead to complications, including hemorrhoids, anal fissures with rectal bleeding, and rectal prolapse.[12] Bright red blood on toilet paper or in the toilet bowl usually indicates bleeding low in the colon or rectum. See Table 2 for a list of drugs that cause constipation and thereby could potentiate bleeding.[12,13]
