Drug Description

What is GoLytely adn how is it used?

GoLytely is a prescription medicine used by adults to clean the colon before a colonoscopy or barium enema X-ray examination. GoLytely cleans your colon by causing you to have diarrhea (loose stools). Cleaning your colon helps your healthcare provider see the inside of your colon more clearly during your colonoscopy. It is not known if GoLytely is safe and effective in children.

What are the possible side effects of GoLytely?

GoLytely can cause serious side effects, including:

  • changes in certain blood tests. Your healthcare provider may do blood tests before and after you take GoLytely to check your blood for changes. Tell your healthcare provider if you have any symptoms of too much fluid loss, including:
    • vomiting
    • stomach (abdominal) cramping
    • nausea
    • headache
    • bloating
    • urinate less than usual
    • dizziness
    • trouble drinking clear liquid
  • ulcers of the bowel or bowel problems (ischemic colitis). Tell your healthcare provider right away if you have severe stomach-area (abdomen) pain or rectal bleeding.

The most common side effects of GoLytely include:

  • nausea
  • stomach (abdominal) cramps
  • anal irritation
  • stomach (abdominal) fullness
  • vomiting
  • esophageal bleeding
  • bloating
  • chest x-ray that shows water in the lungs (infiltrate) after vomiting or inhaling food or liquid (aspirate).

Tell your healthcare provider if you have any side effect that bothers you or that does not go away.

These are not all the possible side effects of GoLytely. For more information, ask your healthcare provider or pharmacist. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800FDA-1088.

Side Effects

SIDE EFFECTS

The following clinically significant adverse reactions are described elsewhere in the labeling:

  • Renal impairment [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS]
  • Colonic mucosal ulcerations and ischemic colitis [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS]
  • Patients with significant gastrointestinal disease [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS]
  • Aspiration [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS]

The following adverse reactions associated with the use of GoLYTELY were identified in clinical trials or postmarketing reports. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to estimate their frequency, reliably, or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.

Drug Interactions

DRUG INTERACTIONS

Drugs That May Increase Risks Due To Fluid And Electrolyte Abnormalities

Use caution when prescribing GoLYTELY for patients with conditions and/or who are using medications that increase the risk for fluid and electrolyte disturbances or may increase the risk of renal impairment, seizure, arrhythmias, and prolonged QT in the setting of fluid and electrolyte abnormalities [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS]. Consider additional patient evaluations as appropriate.

Potential For Reduced Drug Absorption

GoLYTELY can reduce the absorption of other administered drugs. Administer oral medications within one hour before the start of administration of GoLYTELY [see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION].

Stimulant Laxatives

Concurrent use of stimulant laxatives and GoLYTELY may increase the risk of mucosal ulceration or ischemic colitis. Avoid use of stimulant laxatives (e.g., bisacodyl, sodium picosulfate) while taking GoLYTELY [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].

Warnings & Precautions

WARNINGS

Included as part of the PRECAUTIONS section.

PRECAUTIONS

Serious Fluid And Serum Chemistry Abnormalities

Advise patients to hydrate adequately before, during, and after the use of GoLYTELY. Use caution in patients with congestive heart failure when replacing fluids. If a patient develops significant vomiting or signs of dehydration including signs of orthostatic hypotension after taking GoLYTELY, consider performing post-colonoscopy lab tests (electrolytes, creatinine, and BUN) and treat accordingly. Fluid and electrolyte disturbances can lead to serious adverse events including cardiac arrhythmias, seizures and renal impairment. Correct fluid and electrolyte abnormalities before treatment with GoLYTELY.

In addition, use caution when prescribing GoLYTELY for patients who have conditions, or who are using medications, that increase the risk for fluid and electrolyte disturbances or may increase the risk of adverse events of seizure, arrhythmias, and renal impairment [see DRUG INTERACTIONS].

Cardiac Arrhythmias

There have been rare reports of serious arrhythmias associated with the use of ionic osmotic laxative products for bowel preparation. Use caution when prescribing GoLYTELY for patients at increased risk of arrhythmias (e.g., patients with a history of prolonged QT, uncontrolled arrhythmias, recent myocardial infarction, unstable angina, congestive heart failure, or cardiomyopathy). Consider pre-dose and post-colonoscopy ECGs in patients at increased risk of serious cardiac arrhythmias.

Seizures

There have been reports of generalized tonic-clonic seizures and/or loss of consciousness associated with use of bowel preparation products in patients with no prior history of seizures. The seizure cases were associated with electrolyte abnormalities (e.g., hyponatremia, hypokalemia, hypocalcemia, and hypomagnesemia) and low serum osmolality. The neurologic abnormalities resolved with correction of fluid and electrolyte abnormalities.

Use caution when prescribing GoLYTELY for patients with a history of seizures and in patients at increased risk of seizure, such as patients taking medications that lower the seizure threshold (e.g., tricyclic antidepressants), patients withdrawing from alcohol or benzodiazepines, or patients with known or suspected hyponatremia [see DRUG INTERACTIONS].

Renal Impairment

Use caution when prescribing GoLYTELY for patients with impaired renal function or patients taking concomitant medications that may affect renal function (such as diuretics, angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blockers, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) [see DRUG INTERACTIONS]. Advise these patients of the importance of adequate hydration and consider performing baseline and post-colonoscopy laboratory tests (electrolytes, creatinine, and BUN) in these patients [see Use Is Specific Populations].

Colonic Mucosal Ulcerations And Ischemic Colitis

Administration of osmotic laxative products may produce colonic mucosal aphthous ulcerations, and there have been reports of more serious cases of ischemic colitis requiring hospitalization. Concurrent use of stimulant laxatives and GoLYTELY may increase this risk [see DRUG INTERACTIONS]. Consider the potential for mucosal ulcerations resulting from the bowel preparation when interpreting colonoscopy findings in patients with known or suspect inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

Use In Patients With Significant Gastrointestinal Disease

If gastrointestinal obstruction or perforation is suspected, perform appropriate diagnostic studies to rule out these conditions before administering GoLYTELY [see CONTRAINDICATIONS]. Use with caution in patients with severe active ulcerative colitis.

Aspiration

Use with caution in patients with impaired gag reflex, unconscious, or semiconscious patients, and patients prone to regurgitation or aspiration. Observe these patients during administration of GoLYTELY, especially if it is administered via nasogastric tube.

Hypersensitivity Reactions

GoLYTELY contains PEG and may cause serious hypersensitivity reactions including anaphylaxis, angioedema, rash, urticaria, and pruritus [see ADVERSE REACTIONS]. Inform patients of the signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis and instruct them to seek immediate medical care should signs and symptoms occur.

Patient Counseling Information

Advise the patient to read the FDA-Approved Patient Labeling (Medication Guide and Instructions for Use).

Instruct patients:

  • To reconstitute GoLYTELY with water prior to ingestion.
  • Not to take other laxatives while they are taking GoLYTELY.
  • Not to take oral medications within 1 hour before the start or during the administration of GoLYTELY.
  • To take only clear liquids but avoid red and purple liquids.
  • To consume water or other clear liquids during the bowel preparation and after completion of the bowel preparation up until 2 hours before the time of the colonoscopy.
  • To follow the directions in the Instructions for Use on how to prepare and administer the product.
  • If they experience severe bloating, distention or abdominal pain, to slow or temporarily discontinue drinking the solution and to contact their healthcare provider.
  • To contact their healthcare provider if they develop signs and symptoms of dehydration or if they experience altered consciousness or seizures. [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
  • To discontinue administration of the solution and contact their healthcare provider if they develop symptoms of a hypersensitivity reaction [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].

Nonclinical Toxicology

No Information provided

Use In Specific Populations

Pregnancy

Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with GoLYTELY. It is also not known whether GoLYTELY can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproductive capacity. GoLYTELY should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.

Nursing Mothers

It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when GoLYTELY is administered to a nursing woman.

Pediatric Use

Safety and effectiveness of GoLYTELY in pediatric patients have not been established.

Geriatric Use

Clinical studies of GoLYTELY did not include sufficient numbers of subjects aged 65 and over to determine whether they respond differently from younger subjects. Other reported clinical experience has not identified differences in responses between the elderly and younger patients.

Renal Impairment

Use GoLYTELY with caution in patients with renal impairment or patients taking concomitant medications that may affect renal function [see DRUG INTERACTIONS]. These patients may be at risk for renal injury. Advise these patients of the importance of adequate hydration before, during and after use of GoLYTELY and consider performing baseline and post-colonoscopy laboratory tests (electrolytes, creatinine, and BUN) in these patients [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].

Overdosage & Contraindications

OVERDOSE

No Information provided

CONTRAINDICATIONS

GoLYTELY is contraindicated in the following conditions:

  • Gastrointestinal (GI) obstruction [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS]
  • Bowel perforation [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS]
  • Toxic colitis or toxic megacolon
  • Gastric retention
  • Ileus
  • Hypersensitivity to any component of GoLYTELY [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS]
Clinical Pharmacology

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

Mechanism Of Action

The primary mode of action is thought to be through the osmotic effect of polyethylene glycol 3350 which causes water to be retained in the colon and produces a watery stool.

Pharmacodynamics

GoLYTELY induces as diarrhea which rapidly cleanses the bowel, usually within four hours.

Pharmacokinetics

The pharmacokinetics of PEG 3350 following administration of GoLYTELY were not assessed. Available pharmacokinetic information for oral PEG3350 suggests that it is poorly absorbed.
