Constipation Drug Could Boost Memory After Just Six Days

A drug used to treat constipation could boost a person’s memory after just six days, a study by the University of Oxford suggests.

The pill Prucalopride, also known as Resolor, is already used to treat digestive problems, but new research has shown it could also be used to tackle cognition impairments caused by psychiatric disorders like major depression, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Researchers said the findings, presented at the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology Conference, provide “exciting early evidence” of the drug’s benefits.
