What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

Colyte Drug Information
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.
How to Use Colyte
Some brands of Colyte come with a Medication Guide. If available, read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start taking Colyte. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Follow any special diet instructions provided by your doctor. Do not eat solid food, usually starting on the day before your procedure until after your procedure. Colyte must be mixed with water as directed before use. Carefully read and follow all directions to mix Colyte. After mixing, place the container in the refrigerator. Chilling the mixed liquid will improve its taste. Colyte may cause certain liquid thickeners (starch-based products) to not work well, which may increase the risk of choking. If you are using liquid thickeners with Colyte, talk to your pharmacist to select a liquid thickener which will not interact with Colyte. The Dosage of Colyte is based on your medical condition, procedure, and response to treatment. Drink the mixture by mouth as directed by your doctor. It is best to drink the mixed liquid quickly instead of sipping slowly. The mixture may also be given through a nose-to-stomach (nasogastric) tube. Follow the specific directions given by your doctor for when and how much to drink. Be sure to finish drinking the amount directed by your doctor. Watery bowel movements usually begin within 1 hour after you start to drink the mixed liquid. Drink plenty of clear liquids as directed by your doctor to prevent losing to much body water (become dehydrated). Avoid taking other medications by mouth within 1 hour before you start taking Colyte. Doing so may make the other medication work less well. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure when to take your other medications.
Before taking electrolyte with PEG, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Colyte may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Colyte, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,certain stomach/intestinal problems (such as toxic colitis, obstruction, ulcerative colitis), trouble swallowing (such as poor gag reflex, aspiration), history of vomiting easily/often, heart problems (such as heart failure, irregular heartbeat, QT prolongation in the EKG), kidney problems, seizure disorder, mineral imbalances (such as low level of sodium in the blood). Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). Children may be more sensitive to the side effects of Colyte, especially dehydration. Room temperature solution is better for infants. Children younger than 2 years may be more likely to develop low blood sugar from not eating. Get medical help right away if you notice symptoms of low blood sugar in your child, such as shakiness, unusual sleepiness, abnormal/prolonged crying. During pregnancy, Colyte should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is unknown whether Colyte passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
