Can I Add Crystal Light to TriLyte?
As you prepare your TriLyte® (polyethylene glycol electrolyte solution), you may find yourself wondering if you can add Crystal Light®? The manufacturer of TriLyte warns that no other flavorings or liquids should be added to the solution. However, some people add flavorings such as Crystal Light powder to make the solution more palatable.
Ask your healthcare provider before adding Crystal Light (or any flavoring other than the included flavor packs) to TriLyte. Certain flavors, such as those that come in the form of dark-colored powders, must be avoided, as they may obscure important colonoscopy findings.
