How It Works:
Polyethylene glycol as laxative
It works by causing water to be retained with the stool. This increases the number of bowel movements and softens the stool so it is easier to pass.
Polyethylene glycol as lubricant
Polyethylene glycol keeps the eye moist, help to protect the eye from injury and infection, and decrease symptoms of dry eyes such as burning, itching, and feeling as if something is in the eye.

- Avoid taking a Polyethelene Glycol for more than 1 week, unless prescribed by the doctor, as it leads to dependency on the laxative action to produce a bowel movement.
- Together with Polyethelene Glycol, fiber rich diet containing whole grain bread and cereals, bran, fruits and green leafy vegetables, is essential to maintain healthy bowel function.
- A Polyethelene Glycol should preferably be taken at bedtime because it requires 6 to 8 hours to show impact.
- Notify your doctor if you are on a low-sugar diet because the Polyethelene Glycol contains sugars.
- Take Polyethelene Glycol after 2 hours from other medicines, as it may interfere with the absorption of other medicines.
