Which Is Better Golytely Or Miralax Before A Colonoscopy
Can I use miralax (polyethylene glycol) instead of golytely to prepare for my colonoscopy tomorrow?
Peg is the basis of a number of laxatives (i.e. Polyethylene glycol 3350, or miralax). Whole bowel irrigation with polyethylene glycol and added electrolytes is used for bowel preparation before surgery or colonoscopy. The preparation is sold under the brand names golytely, gavilyte c, nulytely, glycolax, fortrans, trilyte, among others. Read more ...Read more
Can I use miralax (polyethylene glycol) and gatorade to prep for my colonoscopy tomorrow, or do I have to use golytely?
Discuss: Your prep with the endoscopist scheduled to perform the exam. Discuss your preferences with the doctor and do it quickly as you don't have enough time to dally if you expect to get the scope successfully completed.See 1 more doctor answer
Cn I start drinking miralax (polyethylene glycol) earlier in day like 11:00 & drinking it 30 min apart day b4 my colonoscopy opposed to starting @ 3 when suggested.
Probably ok: It's probably ok, as long as you follow all the other guidelines. But you will be extending the time from clearing out your bowels to when you can start eating again!
I am getting a colonoscopy done. Can I take the dulcolax and miralax (polyethylene glycol) at the same time?
Colon prep: The bottom line in colon prep is to empty the colon to have a clean colon to visualize during the scope. If your Gastroenterologist given you the instruction to take them together, it is okay.
I'm having colonoscopy tomorrow and I drank the miralax (polyethylene glycol) prep with lipton green tea 64 oz and I feel sick is this normal?
Colonoscopy Prep: I would not say this is normal, but do not be alarmed. I have heard many patients complain of such symptoms so it certainly is not unusual. This is the worst part of having a colonoscopy
I have drunk miralax (polyethylene glycol) all day ever 2/3 hours because I'm getting an endoscopy and colonoscopy tomorrow, but I just threw up a lot is this bad?
Lot of miralax (polyethylene glycol): Regurgitating too much miralax (polyethylene glycol) is not uncommon if the stomach gets overloaded and cant handle the volumn injested. I prefer GoLightly which adsorbs fluid into the small bowel and secondarily cleanses the colon. In spite of everything I still suggest a Fleet enema before going for the procedure.
Had colonoscopy at 10:30 ate some food, now having diarrhea again. Totally loose like I had with prep. Prep was ducolax and miralax (polyethylene glycol). Is this normal?
Yes: Yes this is very normal and can take up to 48 hours to clear. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids to make sure you don't get dehydrated.See 1 more doctor answer

Having problems with constipation, bloating and loss of appetite. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) causes me to burp alot. I had a colonoscopy l-l/2 years ago that was normal.?
Diet: If you have had a full work-up for your constipation, including lab tests. And you've reviewed any medications that might cause constipation, like blood pressure medications, then I would suggest you work on diet. Some people need a lot of fiber. So lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Also, the yogurt activia contains a probiotic that helps with constipation.
Drank all bowel prep (Miralax (polyethylene glycol) and Gatorade) for colonoscopy, 1 hour later nausea and vomiting. What can I do/take for it?
Nausea meds: You can have your doctor call in some nausea medicine.
7d post-colonoscopy, no BM, nausea, bloating, reflux, abd pain, back pain. Tried fiber supp, MiraLax, (polyethylene glycol) prune juice. How else can I wake up my colon?
Call: Your gastroenterologist or the doctor who performed the colonoscopy now. Do not wait. Call for instructions & you may need an exam to be sure there are no complications from your procedure.
