PICO-SALAX is a bowel prep medication used by adults and children to clean the colon before a colonoscopy, x-ray examination, or surgery.
PICO-SALAX cleanses your bowels by retaining moisture in the colon and causing you to have diarrhea. Cleansing your colon helps your doctor see the lining of your colon clearly during your colonoscopy.
PICO-SALAX is indicated for clearance of the bowel prior to x-ray examination, endoscopy or surgery.
How does PICO-SALAX work?
PICO-SALAX is a white powder and is packaged in sachet format (either single or double sachet package). PICO-SALAX causes diarrhea that over time, cleans the solid waste from your colon.
How is PICO-SALAX taken?
Your PICO-SALAX is taken in 2 parts, each sachet is mixed with 150 ml of cold water. Following each dose, 1.5 Litres to 2 Litres of a variety of clear liquids over 4 hours is recommended.
How is PICO-SALAX different from other therapies?
PICO-SALAX allows you to drink less prep solution and stay hydrated with an adequate amount of recommended clear liquids of your choice.
How quickly does PICO-SALAX work?
Each patient reacts to PICO-SALAX differently. The effects of PICO-SALAX may be felt right away or they may take some time. It is important for you to have regular access to a bathroom as soon as you begin taking PICO-SALAX.
