(Polyethylene Glycol 3350, Powder for Oral solution)

Polyethylene glycol 3350 is used to treat occasional constipation. Polyethylene glycol 3350 is in a class of medications called osmotic laxatives. It works by causing water to be retained with the stool. This increases the number of bowel movements and softens the stool so it is easier to pass.

Interactions with other Medical Products and other forms of Interactions:
Food Interactions:

• Avoid alcohol. Withdrawing from alcohol increases the risk of seizures, which is also caused by the drug.
• Avoid milk and dairy products.
• Avoid solid foods. Consume only clear liquids from the start of drug treatment until after the colonoscopy.
The interaction potential is low. Resorption of other pharmaceutical drugs can be reduced because oral macrogol accelerates intestinal passage, but this is seldom clinically relevant. For antiepileptic drugs, such a mechanism has been described in rare cases.
