TriLyte Risk

TriLyte® (polyethylene glycol electrolyte solution) is generally a well-tolerated laxative. However, it does increase the likelihood of problems such as:
 
  • Low blood sugar (in children)
  • Swelling or discomfort in the abdomen (stomach)
  • Skin rash or other symptoms of an allergic reaction.
     
To reduce your risk of complications, talk to your healthcare provider before taking TriLyte if you have any of the following:
 
  • Difficulty swallowing or frequent vomiting
  • A hole in the bowel (bowel perforation)
  • Intestinal blockage (obstruction)
  • Any allergies, including to foods, dyes, or preservatives.
     
Also, tell your healthcare provider about any medications you are taking, including nonprescription drugs, vitamins, and supplements.
