What to Expect From TriLyte

If this is your first colonoscopy, you may be wondering what to expect as you prepare for the procedure. As part of your bowel prep, your healthcare provider will likely prescribe a laxative such as TriLyte® (polyethylene glycol electrolyte solution). By using a laxative, the bowels will become empty so that a healthcare provider can clearly see any potential problems within the colon.
 
Typically, it takes about an hour after starting TriLyte to have your first bowel movement. Loose bowel movements may continue for one to two hours after your last dose. Most people tolerate TriLyte well, but as with any medication, side effects are possible. In clinical studies, the most commonly reported problems included nausea, stomach bloating, and a feeling of abdominal fullness (stomach fullness).
