How Do I Take GlycoLax?

General Information on Using GlycoLax

Some considerations to keep in mind while taking GlycoLax include the following:
 
  • This medication comes as a powder. It is dissolved in four to eight ounces of liquid and swallowed by mouth, usually once a day.
 
  • GlycoLax powder can be mixed with any cold, hot, or room-temperature beverage, such as water, juice, coffee, or tea.
 
  • Follow the directions on your individual GlycoLax product to determine how much powder to use. After adding the powder to a beverage, stir well until it completely dissolves.

  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as recommended.
 
  • If you are unsure about anything related to dosing with GlycoLax, please talk with your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
