Colyte PEG 3350

Your healthcare provider may recommend drinking colyte® (polyethylene glycol electrolyte solution) before your colonoscopy or barium enema x-ray exam. As an osmotic laxative, this product draws large amounts of water into the colon, which allows them to be flushed out in preparation for your procedure.
 
colyte contains the following ingredients.
 
The medication comes in both brand-name and generic form. Generic colyte is available in one strength and form: Polyethylene Glycol 3350 and Electrolytes for Oral Solution.
