Abstract

Drug-induced gastrointestinal disorders can mimic conditions, such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and, hence, recognition can prevent unnecessary investigations and treatment. While the knowledge and awareness relating to the adverse gastrointestinal effects of some medications, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are well established, other commonly prescribed drugs, such as antipsychotics, antidepressants and metformin are less well understood and warrant further study. This review attempts to integrate recent information regarding adverse drug reactions and place this in a useful clinical context.
