Contramyl XR and bowel obstruction

Hello, I have suffered from previous bowel obstructions and so I have not been able to take Concerta due to this possible side effect, as Concerta’s OROS system tablet can enlarge and get stuck and cause an obstruction in the small colon. I would like to know, would Contramyl XR be a safe option as it’s push system is different? Thank you!

It is highly unlikely that the OROS system will enlarge and cause an obstruction. Contramyl does not have a push system, but a MUPS system. Both should be safe.
