    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?
