What should I watch for?
Tell your doctor if you experience any changes in bowel habits that are severe or last for long periods of time.
Do not inhale dust from the solution powder. This can make breathing difficult or may cause sneezing or an allergic-type reaction.
Bloating may occur before the first bowel movement. If your discomfort continues while you are drinking the solution, stop drinking the solution temporarily or drink each portion with longer spaces in between until your symptoms disappear. Contact your doctor or health care professional if you have any concerns.
