Patient Information

colyte® with flavor packs (peg electrolytes solution) produces a watery stool which cleanses the bowel prior to examination.

For best results, no solid food should be ingested during the 3 – 4 hour period prior to the initiation of colyte® with flavor packs (peg electrolytes solution) administration. In no case should solid foods be eaten within 2 hours of drinking colyte® with flavor packs (peg electrolytes solution) .

The rate of administration is 240 mL (8 fl. oz.) every 10 minutes. Rapid drinking of each portion is preferred rather than drinking small amounts continuously.

The first bowel movement should occur approximately one hour after the start of colyte® with flavor packs (peg electrolytes solution) administration.

Administration of colyte® with flavor packs (peg electrolytes solution) should be continued until the watery stool is clear and free of solid matter. This normally requires the consumption of approximately 3 – 4 liters (3 – 4 quarts), although more or less may be required in some patients. The unused portion should be discarded.

PEG/ELECTROLYTE - ORAL

(PEG/ih-LECK-troh-lite)

COMMON BRAND NAME(S): Colyte, Golytely, Nulytely

USES: PEG (polyethylene glycol) with electrolyte is used to clean out the intestines before certain bowel exam procedures such as colonoscopy or barium enema X-rays. It is a laxative that works by drawing large amounts of water into the colon. This effect results in watery bowel movements. Clearing stool from the intestines helps your doctor to better examine the intestines during your procedure.

OTHER USES: This section contains uses of this drug that are not listed in the approved US professional labeling for the drug but that may be prescribed by your health care professional. Use this drug for a condition that is listed in this section only if it has been so prescribed by your health care professional.

This drug may be used, only as directed by your doctor, for constipation. However, when treating constipation, you should use milder products (such as stool softeners, bulk-forming laxatives) whenever possible. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about other treatment options.

HOW TO USE: Follow any special diet instructions provided by your doctor. Do not eat solid food for 3 or more hours before starting to take this product. Never eat solid food within 2 hours of drinking the mixed liquid.

Before using this product, mix it as directed. Read and follow all directions with the product package to mix this product. After mixing, place the container in the refrigerator until ready to drink. Chilling the mixed liquid will improve its taste. Do not mix with other flavorings/liquids. Do not drink with ice.

Drink the mixed solution by mouth. It may also be given through a nose-to-stomach (nasogastric) tube. Dosage is based on your medical condition, procedure, and response to treatment.

Drink one 8-ounce glass (240 milliliters) of the mixture every 10 minutes until your watery stool is clear and has no solid matter. Most people need to drink 3 to 4 liters of solution, or take as directed by your doctor. It is best to drink the mixed liquid quickly instead of sipping slowly. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions about how to mix or take this product or what to expect after taking this product.

If severe bloating or abdominal pain occurs, wait longer (15-30 minutes) between each glass of the mixture, or temporarily stop drinking the mixture until the symptoms improve.

Watery bowel movements usually begin within 1 hour after you start to drink the mixed liquid. You may drink more clear liquids so that you do not lose too much body water (become dehydrated).

Do not take any other medications by mouth within 1 hour of starting to drink the mixed liquid because your body may not absorb the other medications. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure when to take your other medications.
