MiraLax (obsolete) (polyethylene glycol 3350 with electrolytes) 3350 2 days
Constipation
I have always had probs with constipation. My doc suggested that i take i scoop of Miralax everyday to help with constipation. Today is the second day that i have taken it. The day before yesterday was my first day taking it. All day yesterday my throat was sore, i was coughing,i felt bloated, and just a general feeling of malaise.I was also gagging periodically. I thought i was just catching a bug. Well,i took another dose about two hours ago. Guess what? i'm starting to feel bad again. So i guess the Miralax is the colprit. Today my chest feels tight as well. I will not be taking this ever again! What's in this stuff! 35 Female 09/21

Vertigo
Started becoming extremely dizzy 30 minutes after taking Miralax (1st dose as directed). Could not stand up, walk, and had to go to the ER. Doc said it was vertigo. I've never had this before and it was very scary. Took a couple days to go away but will not take this drug again. 50 Female 03/16

Lack of energy/fatigue

Severe muscle spasm
Generalized weakness
Muscle spasms of the neck
Headache
This was taken for a colonoscopy prep. I Had to take the whole bottle (238g) with 64 oz. of liquid over 2 hours as a colonoscpoy prep. I suspect most of the side effects were due to electrolyte depeletion. After drinking 60 oz. of Gatorade with the electrolytes in it, the cramps subsided. I will never take Miralax again. What kind of chemical is Polyethylene Glycol anyhow? A cousin to antifreeze??? 10/20

MoviPrep (polyethylene glycol 3350 with electrolytes)  
Intestine problems
Horrible experience! Wished I read these reviews before buying this disgusting drink. Went through half of the first bottle before vomiting. Drank a lot of water instead to help flush my stool out. Couldn't drink the second bottle at all. With my wieght being 116 lbs, one bottle was sufficient. In the morning, I was so nauseous that I kept vomiting every 15 minutes to the hospital before my colonostopy. While in the prep room, the nurse gave me a nauseous medicine through the IV. Then my vomiting stopped. The nurse said that I had an allergic reaction to this MoviPrep in which others have had the same reaction that she experienced. Now it makes since why this company is offering a $20 rebate because their sales are down from all the bad reactions that people are having. I would not recommend this product to anyone ! 45 Female 02/24

TriLyte with Flavor Packs (polyethylene glycol 3350 with electrolytes) less than 2 oz. 1 times
Constipation
Purpose of TriLyte was to prepare for a colonoscopy and endoscopy. I followed instructions to mix packets and added orange flavor packet. In less than five minutes after drinking a sip (under 2 ounces) my breathing became constricted, my muscles tightened up across my rib cage and it felt as if my airways had shut down by 95 percent; my chest, arms and legs went completely numb (there was no tingling). At the same time, my esophagus felt like it was on fire. I also felt as if I'd been anesthetized (put to sleep); my body felt paralyzed as if my lungs had shut down and my eyes were compelled to close. I felt perfectly fine before ingesting this test preparation drug but almost immediately drinking less than 4 ounces, I l had to lay down immediately and remained in the same position for several hours. The whole experience was terrifying. I woke up in time for my exam and could move by then, however, my breathing was constricted for about over a month. When it comes to before and after chest scans, my left lung shrunk significantly almost immediately. It has been 7 months since I followed Doctor's orders. 51 Female 08/09

GoLYTELY (polyethylene glycol 3350 with electrolytes) 1 liter 1 days
Intestinal blockage due to severe constipation
I really needed help going to the bathroom. I am only 35. Nothing seemed to work, stool softeners,
laxatives, eating more fiber, nothing. My doctor took an X-ray and found that I was severely "stopped up".
I have never been this stopped up in my life. Now I think that it would have been better to have stayed
stopped up than go through he nightmare that is called GoLytely. First of all, there is nothing
"lyte" or light about it. It is the strongest laxative known to man. It does not make you have regular BM's, Oh no,
it gives you liquid poo instead, and LOTS OF IT! It was pretty much like peeing poo. It did clean out my bowels,
but now I am experiencing extreme gassiness and cramping in my stomach that is not allowing me to sleep.
I keep on eating, thinking I might be hungry, but I think it is only making it worse. I can't leave the house
because I might poo in my pants while just checking the mail! My stomach is gurgling at this very moment and
you can actually hear it from 10 feet away and see the flesh ripple. I took this concoction at 10:00 A.M. and
it is now 12:00 at night and I am not able to sleep due to the discomfort I am experiencing. I think next time,
although I pray to God that there is NOT a next time, but if there is because God is cursing me, I will try every other
avenue before taking this medicine. I will even try an enema, an operation, committing myself to a convent and
praying to God to release me from constipation. Am I being overly dramatic? If you have been extremely constipated
and have gone through the torture that is called Golytly , you will think not. THE END.

MoviPrep (polyethylene glycol 3350 with electrolytes) half dosage 1 days
Bloating
Diverticulitis (inflammation/infection of small pouches that develop in weak spots in the intestines)
These are the reactions from the first dosage of medication of moviprep. Called emergency room stop med, severe pain and fever all night. In the doctors office 2 days ago. So tender in abdomen and anus doc could not touch him. Fever is still 101 today and we will return to doctor tomorrow for more blood work and if he is not better hospital.

My husband had no problem whatsoever before he started this medicine.
When I called the hospital doc on call said I have never heard of that med. Stop it right away!
Dangerous drug he has had 2 routine colonoscopys and never a problem before this drug.
Have reported it to drug company. Doubt it will make any difference.
I hope he does not die or mess up his intestine.

MoviPrep (polyethylene glycol 3350 with electrolytes) 2L 1 days
Rectal problems
Pain and bloating far worse than Phos and enemas used to prep for prior colonoscopies.
Nearly read to go to the hospital for the pain alone.
Consumed last 3 1/2 hours ago, still not clear stool and pain increasing.
And the price; do they charge by the level of discomfort provided?
