PICO-SALAX® is a bowel prep medication used by adults and children to clean the colon before a colonoscopy, x-ray examination, or surgery.

PICO-SALAX® cleanses your bowels by retaining moisture in the colon and producing a semi fluid or watery evacuation. Cleansing your colon helps your doctor see the lining of your colon clearly during your colonoscopy.

PICO-SALAX® is available in cranberry and orange flavour. PICO-SALAX®allows you to drink any recommended clear liquids at your own pace, to maintain hydration during the prep process.

How is PICO-SALAX® taken?
