HYDROCO APAP 10 325inactive ingredients used

Does the drug have polyethylene glycol or poly propylene glycol in it? ## Hello, Popeye! How are you? What are the markings on the tablet in question? There are several on the market, so I can't check with inactive ingredients for you, without knowing more details. I don't think these are in any, but I'd like to be sure.

go lightly side effects

i took about 32 ounces of this stuff to clean me out BUT had to stop cause my st0mach was killing me. ## Go Lytely contains: polyethylene glycol, potassium chloride, sodium bicarbonate, sodium chloride, and sodium sulfate And is used to clean out the bowels, usually before medical testing. And yes, anything that works basically as a laxative can cause those types of side effects and you may also experience: bloating, vomiting or nausea.

I then looked up the side effects and they were there. I took one sip several hours later and instantlay experienced the same reaction. Be aware!

PEG

I've taken 3 - 17 oz doses of PEG since yesterday. Now I just feel disoriented, nauseaus and light headed. Yet nothing in the elimination category.

Terrific stuff, just don't take too much of it. test the dosage to see how you're doing. Kaiser now has me on Keppra 4000 mg/ day. which is stopping the seizures with no serious side effects.
