Phoslax may be used to relieve occasional 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. Your doctor may also prescribe Phoslax (usually along with other products) to clean stool from the intestines before surgery or certain bowel procedures (such as colonoscopy, radiography). Use it only as directed by your doctor. Sodium phosphate is a saline laxative that is thought to work by increasing fluid in the small intestine. It usually results in a bowel movement after 30 minutes to 6 hours. Do not use Phoslax in children younger than 5 years of age unless directed by the doctor.
Rarely, serious kidney problems have occurred with the use of Phoslax. Heart failure, kidney disease, bowel problems (such as blockage, ulcerative colitis), or being older than 55 years can increase the risk. Taking certain medications that can affect the kidneys (see Drug Interactions section) can also increase the risk. If any of these cautions apply to you, talk with your doctor before using Phoslax.
How to Use Phoslax
Read and follow all directions on the product package. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. To improve the taste, Phoslax may be chilled in the refrigerator before use. Do not freeze. Mix your dose in 8 ounces (240 milliliters) of liquid and drink the mixed solution.

If your doctor has directed you to use Phoslax before surgery or a bowel procedure, your doctor should tell you how long before the surgery/procedure you should take Phoslax. Follow your doctor's directions closely. After taking the medication, drink plenty of clear liquids as directed by your doctor. Doing so will help prevent serious side effects (such as kidney problems, dehydration). Talk with your doctor about types of liquids you can drink before your procedure.

Do not take more of Phoslax than directed, use Phoslax more often than once in 24 hours, or use Phoslax for more than 3 days unless directed by your doctor. Also, do not use any other laxative products while using Phoslax unless directed by your doctor. Doing so may increase your risk for severe side effects. If you are seeing a doctor for any medical problems, are on a salt-restricted diet, or if you are taking any other medications, do not use Phoslax to treat yourself for constipation without consulting your doctor. Phoslax may cause a condition known as laxative dependence, especially if it has been used regularly for a long time. In such cases, ongoing constipation and loss of normal bowel function may occur. For most people with occasional constipation, a bulk-forming laxative (such as psyllium) or a stool softener (such as docusate) is a better and safer product. To prevent laxative dependence, consult your doctor if you need to use Phoslax or other laxative products for more than 7 days. Stop using Phoslax and contact your doctor promptly if you do not have a bowel movement within 6 hours of using Phoslax, if you have symptoms of dehydration (see Side Effects section), if you bleed from the rectum, or if you think you may have a serious medical problem.
