Orocecal transit time was determined by the lactulose hydrogen breath test in nine healthy volunteers after administration of placebo, loperamide (16 mg per os), and loperamide (16 mg per os) followed by oral naloxone at doses of 16 and 32 mg. The four tests were performed in double-blind conditions and in random sequences. Transit time (mean, sd) after loperamide (128.8 min, 32.9) was significantly increased (P
