MoviPrep Complications

The prescription laxative MoviPrep® (polyethylene glycol electrolyte solution) is generally safe and well tolerated. However, it can potentially cause problems and may not be suitable for everyone.
Some people may have a higher risk for serious complications with MoviPrep. This includes people who have medical conditions such as severe inflammatory bowel disease or extreme swelling of the intestines. Also, people who have an electrolyte imbalance may have an increased risk for seizures while using MoviPrep.
In addition, MoviPrep may cause negative interactions if you are taking certain medications and may not be safe for use in women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
