Colon Preparation
Your colon needs to be perfectly clean for the colonoscopy procedure to be accurate. It must be clear of any debris that might obscure the view inside the colon and rectum.

You will be prescribed either a “Fleet Phospho-Soda EZ-Prep”, or a “NuLYTELY Prep”. All drugs should be taken with caution – see below:

Fleet Phospho-soda & OsmoPrep: CAUTION
Patients should not take the 45 ml Fleet Phospho-soda Prep if they are elderly, have congestive heart failure, or have high blood pressure and are taking antihypertensive medicine such as diuretics, ACE-Is, ARBs; or if they are taking NSAIDs such as Aspirin or Ibuprofen; as these patients would be at increased risk for kidney failure. Notify your physician’s office immediately if you are taking any of these medicines or have any of these conditions and ask your doctor to verify which colon preparation he wants you to take.

Children under the age of 18 years; and patients with abdominal pain, nausea, or vomiting should not use the Fleet Phospho-soda Prep.

NuLYTELY® with Flavor Packs: CAUTION
NuLYTELY requires a prescription and is more expensive than the non-prescription Fleet Phospho-Soda EZ-Prep. Its advantages are that it has been proven safe in a wide range of patients including the elderly, diabetic, hypertensive, cardiac and renal as well as those with electrolyte imbalances. Each jug has an attached package containing 4-flavor packs including Cherry, Lemon-Lime, Orange and Pineapple.

NuLYTELY is contraindicated in patients with gastrointestinal obstruction, gastric retention, bowel perforation, toxic colitis, toxic megacolon, or ileus.
