GlycoLax™ (polyethylene glycol 3350) is an over-the-counter (OTC) medication used for treating constipation. It works by drawing water into the colon, softening the stool, and increasing the frequency of bowel movements. Although most people tolerate it well, potential side effects include gas, diarrhea, and nausea. Although GlycoLax is no longer manufactured, several generic versions are still available.
