What prescription medications are used for fecal incontinence and how do they work? Hyoscyamine (Levbid, NuLev), dicyclomine (Bentyl), clindium, and atropine (Lomotil); opiates such as codeine, cholestyramine (Questran). These drugs produce constipation by slowing the movement of the intestine and promoting increased fluid absorption. When the stools are dry and firm, they are less likely to leak out of the anus.

Therefore they rely on reviews by other people
when considering innovations and developments
in their practice.
Our aim for this book, therefore, is to present
readers with the issues arising from conducting
systematic reviews and thereby to help them

Unfortunately not much more was published about prostate aspiration biopsies for the next

successful in allowing a directed biopsy through the perineum (Parry and Finelli, 1960).
Their technique afforded greater needle control by using digital-guidance.
