Colyte Powder is a Prescription Laxative Solution

There are a few reasons why your doctor may prescribe Colyte Powder, such as a suspected irritated bowel disease like colitis, a possible large bowel obstruction, to examine your upper or lower gastrointestinal tract, or for unexplained abdominal pain. In any case, you will need to completely evacuate your bowels in order for your doctor to be able to get a clear picture of what is going on. This may be done as an x-ray, a colonoscopy, or a barium enema. None of these are appealing, but it is necessary to find out what is going on inside your body.

The Way Colyte Powder Works

Colyte Powder contains several ingredients; Macrogol is polyethylene glycol and works by increasing your fluid content in the large bowel by drawing it in from the surrounding tissues. This acts to soften the stool, making bowel movements easier; Potassium Chloride , Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Chloride, and Sodium Sulfate are all essential electrolytes that work to balance or regulate your body’s fluids, salt, acidity, cell function, and such. When you take Colyte Powder, any of the electrolytes you lose through emptying your bowels will be replaced with the Potassium Chloride/ Sodium Bicarbonate/Sodium Chloride/Sodium Sulfate.

Reasons for Taking Colyte Powder

Your doctor may recommend a colonoscopy if you have blood in your stool, diarrhea, pain in your abdomen, or you have a history of polyps or cancer. Colon cancer, Crohn’s disease, and colitis can be easily found with a special scope that is inserted into your rectum while you are lightly sedated. The doctor will be able to see any suspect lumps or polyps and snip a tiny piece off for further diagnostic testing.

For those that have reached the age of 50, many doctors will suggest a colonoscopy as a preventive measure to check for anything suspicious. If there is no further testing required, you will be recommended to undergo another colonoscopy every 10 years.

Before Taking Colyte Powder

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or are breast feeding as Colyte Powder may pose a risk to your unborn or nursing baby. Explain other medical conditions or allergies you have to your doctor and list any OTC or Rx medications you currently take or use, including herbal preparations and vitamin or dietary supplements, to determine if your doctor thinks Colyte Powder is right for your situation.

Colyte Powder must be mixed with water, some packages could contain a flavoring to make it easier to drink, do not add your own flavor! Follow all instructions regarding how to mix it, how much to drink at one time, and how often you should drink it. Failure to follow through on the directions may result in postponing the colonoscopy. Remember to drink clear fluids before, during, and after the procedure. You may need to fast for a time period before the colonoscopy or eat only what has been suggested in your instructions.
