How GlycoLax Works

GlycoLax™ (polyethylene glycol 3350) is a nonprescription laxative used for treating constipation. It is important to note that GlycoLax is no longer manufactured; however, several generic versions are still available.
 
Belonging to a group of medications called osmotic laxatives, GlycoLax works by drawing water into the colon, softening the stool, and increasing the number of bowel movements. It may take up to four days after you start using this laxative to have a bowel movement. Do not take more than the recommended amount if you do not have a bowel movement right away.
