Colonoscopy Prep - Colyte Alternative?
Colyte causes nausea and is out of the question. What to do? Asked by Donnie December 1 year ago.

My hubby just went through this & his doc prescribed the Fleet Prep Kit. It worked quite well and has no colyte ingedients. Uses bisacodyl, mainly. Might want to check w/ the surgeon/examiner & make sure this is okay with her/him. See the first link for ingredients of Fleet. Then compare w/second link listing ingredients for CoLyte. Answered by Michelle Noneman 1 year ago.

Call the doctor and say "I am not going to drink that crap. I want a alternative prep." They can either suggest an alternative or you find another doctor. Tell the doctor those are your choices. Most reasonable doctors will come up with an alternative rather than loose a patient. They know their colleagues would love to get a new patient. Answered by Lauri Graef 1 year ago.


Can I take a laxative or enema instead of the Colyte powder for my barium enema?
I have a barium enema tomorrow morning. I'm trying to drink the colyte liquid but it tastes so bad that I keep nearly throwing up and its making me feel dizzy. I CANT drink it anymore. Is there anything else I can do? Asked by Porter Steinburg 1 year ago.

That depends on how much of the Colyte you have consumed and what the returns look like now. A secret to consuming it would be to use a straw so you can smell it. You could call the doctor and ask or go buy two bottles of magnesium citrate and take one now and another early in the morning. Even if you are very experienced with taking large volume enemas, it is very difficult to get the solution to the cecum. Even if you do, the small intestine still id passing chyme into the large intestine. The purpose of the massive laxatives is to clean everything from end to end. Answered by Beth Ballinger 1 year ago.

There isn't anything you can do at the moment unless there is still time for the doc's office to call a prescription to a pharmacy and still enough time for everything to clear. Alternatives are available in a capsule form that is much easier to take. If you can't drink the liquid -that's OK. Call the office and let them know. They can reschedule the procedure and you can try a different approach. Answered by Richelle Ressler 1 year ago.

If you want to have the barium enema tomorrow, you need to finish the prepoaration today. If you want to try a different preparation method then you need to rescedule and make alternative arrangements. Answered by Shirl Estel 1 year ago.


Colonoscopy Prep - Colyte Alternative?
Colyte causes nausea and is out of the question. What to do? Asked by Dyan Christe 1 year ago.

This isn't that difficult if you stand up for your rights. Try this "Doc, we have a problem. I am not going to drink that slime. You need to prescribe me a solution that doesn't involve any of the PEG type preps. This is not open to discussion." It worked for me. There are lots of doctors interested in the patients concerns and wishes. If yours isn't one of them politely say "Doc perhaps it's best we end this now. I need to find a doctor who is listening to me because it appears your not it." You'll either get the doctor's attention or fire them. If you are afraid to speak up you take what's they give you.

There's always the ol' Golytely(sp?). No matter what you use, it's going to suck. They taste bad (and cause nausea) because they load them with electrolytes. See if your doc will give you something for the nausea, and pre-medicate yourself. If not, good luck! Answered by Kathleen Kuhs 1 year ago.

Question about Colyte flavor packs?
Does anybody know if any of the flavors are less nasty? I have orange, pineapple, cherry, lemon-lime or citrus berry to choose from. I'm not looking forward to drinking this stuff and I was wondering if one flavor was better than another. Thanks for your help! Asked by Devin Delashaw 1 year ago.

I've read your question over and I felt the frustration of this form to not to be able to ask you a few probing questions to better answer your question.

It completey cleans you out, I mean completley to prep you for surgery. Well, during the surgery, they removed 2 small fibroids, and a small cyst. To my surprise, I lost about 22 pounds during the next few weeks. I am curious of others opinions of what caused the wight loss......was it the colon cleansing, or the fibroid removal, or the two together. I am getting ready to have another dose of Colyte for another surgery.......here we go again. Any opinions are appreciated...please no sarcastic or rude comments. Thank you :) Answered by Esteban Macauley 1 year ago.

hello tracy, No,I dont think the wt loss was due to the colon cleansing stuff they gave you before the surgery .If anything that stuff played only a minor role in your wt loss. The main reason for the wt loss was the surgery,the removal of fibroids,the fact that there is going to be some amount of blood loss ,the fact that youwill notbe fed by mouth for atleast 48hrs after surgery and even after that you are given simple diet for another week or so in most cases and most importantly your body metobolism is increased after surgery because your body helps heal the surgical wound.These all add up to cause loss of wt. best of luck! for your next surgery.

Does anyone know if you're scheduled for a colonoscopy (or a similar exam,) if you can skip the nasty tasting liquid and/or laxative pills that are prescribed for this exam along with the fasting and clear liquid diet , if you just go for a colonic before the test instead? At least a colonic is a pleasant and very neat and sanitary procedure that I would think would achieve the same cleansing results (without having to spend the day before on the 'throne'.) Medical professional answers appreciated. Answered by Shaunna Sweeden 1 year ago.

Depends on how long the colonic is. An hour doesn't always clean you totally. But you could try fasting and liquids before you go for the colonic. Also try a Castor oil pack. I agree and I thought about this idea too. Laxatives are so painful. Not a medical professional but call 757-437-7202 and ask. Castor oil pack info below Answered by Frida Brosig 1 year ago.

Colonoscopy Prep - Colyte Alternative?
Colyte causes nausea and is out of the question. What to do? Asked by Milissa Klancnik 1 year ago.

My hubby just went through this & his doc prescribed the Fleet Prep Kit. It worked quite well and has no colyte ingedients. Uses bisacodyl, mainly. Might want to check w/ the surgeon/examiner & make sure this is okay with her/him. See the first link for ingredients of Fleet. Then compare w/second link listing ingredients for CoLyte. Answered by Ethelyn Boshes 1 year ago.

Call the doctor and say "I am not going to drink that crap. I want a alternative prep." They can either suggest an alternative or you find another doctor. Tell the doctor those are your choices. Most reasonable doctors will come up with an alternative rather than loose a patient. They know their colleagues would love to get a new patient. Answered by Bee Roarty 1 year ago.


Can I take a laxative or enema instead of the Colyte powder for my barium enema?
I have a barium enema tomorrow morning. I'm trying to drink the colyte liquid but it tastes so bad that I keep nearly throwing up and its making me feel dizzy. I CANT drink it anymore. Is there anything else I can do? Asked by Britni Mcgreevy 1 year ago.

That depends on how much of the Colyte you have consumed and what the returns look like now. A secret to consuming it would be to use a straw so you can smell it. You could call the doctor and ask or go buy two bottles of magnesium citrate and take one now and another early in the morning. Even if you are very experienced with taking large volume enemas, it is very difficult to get the solution to the cecum. Even if you do, the small intestine still id passing chyme into the large intestine. The purpose of the massive laxatives is to clean everything from end to end. Answered by Rima Neylon 1 year ago.

There isn't anything you can do at the moment unless there is still time for the doc's office to call a prescription to a pharmacy and still enough time for everything to clear. Alternatives are available in a capsule form that is much easier to take. If you can't drink the liquid -that's OK. Call the office and let them know. They can reschedule the procedure and you can try a different approach. Answered by Renaldo Toyn 1 year ago.

Colonoscopy Prep - Colyte Alternative?
Colyte causes nausea and is out of the question. What to do? Asked by Peter Lillis 1 year ago.

This isn't that difficult if you stand up for your rights. Try this "Doc, we have a problem. I am not going to drink that slime. You need to prescribe me a solution that doesn't involve any of the PEG type preps. This is not open to discussion." It worked for me. There are lots of doctors interested in the patients concerns and wishes. If yours isn't one of them politely say "Doc perhaps it's best we end this now. I need to find a doctor who is listening to me because it appears your not it." You'll either get the doctor's attention or fire them. If you are afraid to speak up you take what's they give you.

hello tracy, No,I dont think the wt loss was due to the colon cleansing stuff they gave you before the surgery .If anything that stuff played only a minor role in your wt loss. The main reason for the wt loss was the surgery,the removal of fibroids,the fact that there is going to be some amount of blood loss ,the fact that youwill notbe fed by mouth for atleast 48hrs after surgery and even after that you are given simple diet for another week or so in most cases and most importantly your body metobolism is increased after surgery because your body helps heal the surgical wound.These all add up to cause loss of wt. best of luck! for your next surgery.

Depends on how long the colonic is. An hour doesn't always clean you totally. But you could try fasting and liquids before you go for the colonic. Also try a Castor oil pack.

Does anyone know if you're scheduled for a colonoscopy (or a similar exam,) if you can skip the nasty tasting liquid and/or laxative pills that are prescribed for this exam along with the fasting and clear liquid diet , if you just go for a colonic before the test instead? At least a colonic is a pleasant and very neat and sanitary procedure that I would think would achieve the same cleansing results (without having to spend the day before on the 'throne'.) Medical professional answers appreciated. Answered by Edward Auces 1 year ago.

Depends on how long the colonic is. An hour doesn't always clean you totally. But you could try fasting and liquids before you go for the colonic. Also try a Castor oil pack. I agree and I thought about this idea too. Laxatives are so painful. Not a medical professional but call 757-437-7202 and ask. Castor oil pack info below Answered by Clelia Oneel 1 year ago.

I am just curious of others opinions. I had laparscopy surgery several years ago, before I had the surgery, I was told to drink this HORRIBLE stuff called Colyte. It completey cleans you out, I mean completley to prep you for surgery. Well, during the surgery, they removed 2 small fibroids, and a small cyst. To my surprise, I lost about 22 pounds during the next few weeks. I am curious of others opinions of what caused the wight loss......was it the colon cleansing, or the fibroid removal, or the two together. I am getting ready to have another dose of Colyte for another surgery.......here we go again. Any opinions are appreciated...please no sarcastic or rude comments. Thank you :) Answered by Clotilde Lonas 1 year ago.
