Constipation Home > GlycoLax Side Effects
Stomach pain and cramping, bloating, and diarrhea are some of the possible side effects of GlycoLax. Although most problems typically do not require medical attention, you should contact your healthcare provider immediately if you experience difficulty breathing, rectal bleeding, or an unexplained rash. Although GlycoLax is no longer manufactured, generic versions are available.
An Introduction to GlycoLax Side EffectsJust like any medicine, GlycoLax™ (polyethylene glycol 3350) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the laxative will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
Common Side Effects of GlycoLaxThe prescribing information for prescription medications contains the exact percentage of side effects that occurred during clinical trials. However, information for over-the-counter (OTC) medications, such as GlycoLax, is less inclusive. Therefore, it can be difficult to know exactly what side effects occur and how common the reactions may be.
- Abdominal (stomach) bloating
- Frequent stools.
