new concerns about the safety of sodium phosphate bowel preps
There are new concerns about the safety of sodium phosphate bowel preps...Fleet Phospho-soda, OsmoPrep, Visicol, etc.
Oral sodium phosphate is better tolerated than PEG solutions (GoLytely, etc). It may also be more effective...since patients are more likely to finish oral sodium phosphate regimens.
But sodium phosphate can cause electrolyte changes and dehydration...leading to acute renal failure if calcium and phosphate crystals precipitate in the kidney.
