GoLYTELY Uses

Can Older Adults Use It?

Older adults can use GoLYTELY; however, they may have an increased risk for certain serious side effects, including:
 
  • Bleeding in the upper gastrointestinal tract
  • Perforation of the esophagus
  • Shortness of breath
  • Buildup of fluid in the lungs.
 

Off-Label GoLYTELY Uses

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this product for something other than cleansing the bowel before a colonoscopy or barium enema exam. This would be known as an "off-label" use. GoLYTELY may be used off-label to cleanse the bowel before other gastrointestinal procedures. As mentioned, it is also sometimes used off-label in children.
