Yes,called gateraid: Pedialyte is quite different from the rehydration solution used by adults. It has far less glucose and a different balance of electrolytes. Gateraid was the original adult rehydration solution although there are many others now available.

It's for everyone: Pedialyte is a oral rehydration drink that is fine for children and adults. One should talk with his doctor if he is having a lot of vomiting or diarrhea.
