What Is TriLyte?
If you are scheduled to have a colonoscopy, your healthcare provider may instruct you to take a laxative called TriLyte® (polyethylene glycol electrolyte solution) beforehand.
What is this product used for? TriLyte helps empty the bowels in preparation for the colonoscopy. It works by drawing large amounts of water into the colon. This softens the stool and causes watery bowel movements -- these actions aid in emptying the colon completely, allowing your doctor to see your colon more clearly. TriLyte comes in the form of a powder and is mixed with water before being consumed.
