General Information on Taking NuLYTELY

Some considerations for people taking NuLYTELY include the following:
  • This medication comes as a powder, which should be dissolved in lukewarm water before using.
  • You should drink each eight-ounce portion as quickly as possible, instead of sipping it slowly.
  • NuLYTELY is usually taken the night before your procedure. Your healthcare provider will tell you when to start taking the medication.
  • Prepare the solution by filling the NuLYTELY container with lukewarm water to the indicated line (four-liter mark). Shake the container vigorously to make sure the powder completely dissolves. Also, shake the container before each dose.


  • NuLYTELY will taste better if chilled. However, chilled NuLYTELY is not recommended for infants.
  • You should not eat solid food within two hours of starting NuLYTELY. For best results, avoid eating solid foods for three to four hours before starting NuLYTELY. Ask your healthcare provider how long to fast before and after using this medication, and what types of food or liquids you can consume.
  • Some NuLYTELY products come with flavor packets, which are optional. If you do use a flavor packet, use only one and add it before adding water. Do not add any other flavoring, other liquids, or other ingredients to the NuLYTELY solution.
  • It normally takes about one hour after starting NuLYTELY to have your first bowel movement. Loose bowel movements will continue for one to two hours after your last dose of NuLYTELY.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage, please talk with your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
