ICD 10 code for opioid induced constipation

Yes, those look to ICD-10 code K59.09 Other constipation and the series T40.2X5- Adverse effect of other opioids when choosing an opioid-induced diagnosis code. First, code the adverse effect, followed by the code for the drug.

I cant find a ICD 10 code for opioid induced constipation - any suggestions?

This is what I CAN find?

K59.09 Other constipation

T40.2X5 Adverse effect of other opioids
T40.2X5A is a specific ICD-10-CM diagnosis code T40.2X5A …… initial encounter
T40.2X5D is a specific ICD-10-CM diagnosis code T40.2X5D …… subsequent encounter
T40.2X5S is a specific ICD-10-CM diagnosis code T40.2X5S …… sequela

Would you suggest I bill both codes together?
