PegLyte Fruit Flavored Powder Description

PegLyte Fruit Flavored Powder is an osmotic laxative your doctor may prescribe if you are constipated due to an illness, surgery, meds you take, or as a preparation for a colonoscopy that people over the age of 50 should have routinely every 10 years or so. This is to check for any anomalies and possibly take tissue samples for closer examination.

The colonoscopy is usually performed in hospital as an out-patient procedure the day after you have taken the PegLyte Fruit Flavored Powder as directed. You will be administered a light or ‘twilight’ sedation so you will not feel any discomfort from the scope that is inserted into your colon.

How Each Active Ingredient Works to Induce Bowel Movements

The active ingredients of PegLyte Fruit Flavored Powder are Macrogol/Potassium Chloride/Sodium Bicarbonate/ Sodium Sulfate. Macrogol is polyethylene glycol (PEG) that passes through your gut without being absorbed into your body and helps to retain water in your bowel to soften the stool and allow it to pass easily. Potassium Chloride encourages normal movements of your intestinal tract. Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda) is beneficial for drawing fluid into your digestive system and help to relieve gas and stomach ache. And lastly, Sodium Sulfate helps to increase the squeezing and relaxing of your colon (peristalsis) to move the feces along faster and induces lubrication and moisture to make stools pass without straining.

Conditions Treated by PegLyte Fruit Flavored Powder

Due to certain injuries or medical conditions that cause constant pain, many patients are prescribed opioids to help give them some relief. This can cause some people to become constipated and extremely uncomfortable. Some doctors may prescribe PegLyte Fruit Flavored Powder to take along with pain meds to try and avoid constipation and the symptoms it can cause, such as hard, dry stools, bloating, a tender abdomen, and straining when defecating, which can bring its own set of problems by causing hemorrhoids.

Before PegLyte Fruit Flavored Powder is Prescribed

Pregnancy may be the cause of your constipation, however, you should ask if PegLyte Fruit Flavored Powder is safe to take if you are currently pregnant or breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions and allergies you have and provide a list of over the counter and Rx medications you currently take or use, as well as any herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements. This will help determine if PegLyte Fruit Flavored Powder is right for your situation.
