Drug Interactions With Sodium Picosulfate/Magnesium Oxide/Anhydrous Citric Acid

Digoxin
Sodium picosulfate/magnesium oxide/anhydrous citric acid can cause electrolyte imbalances, which can be quite dangerous for people taking digoxin. Discuss this possibility with your healthcare provider before taking sodium picosulfate/magnesium oxide/anhydrous citric acid.
 
Diuretics
If you are taking a diuretic medication, you may have a higher risk for potentially serious electrolyte abnormalities due to sodium picosulfate/magnesium oxide/anhydrous citric acid. Your healthcare provider may suggest a blood test to measure your electrolyte levels before and after your colonoscopy. Also, some diuretics can decrease kidney function, which increases your risk for serious side effects.
 
NSAIDs
If you are taking an NSAID medication, you may have a higher risk for potentially serious electrolyte abnormalities or kidney problems due to sodium picosulfate/magnesium oxide/anhydrous citric acid. Your healthcare provider may suggest a blood test to measure your electrolyte levels before and after your colonoscopy.
 
Oral Medications Taken Within One Hour of Sodium Picosulfate/Magnesium Oxide/Anhydrous Citric Acid
Sodium picosulfate/magnesium oxide/anhydrous citric acid is a laxative. Any oral medication taken during your bowel prep (starting within one hour before the first dose of sodium picosulfate/magnesium oxide/anhydrous citric acid and continuing until your colonoscopy) could be flushed out of the gastrointestinal tract before being absorbed by the body.
 
Avoid taking any oral medications, vitamins, or supplements within one hour of starting sodium picosulfate/magnesium oxide/anhydrous citric acid and while you are using this product. If you will miss a medication dose because of this bowel-prep product, talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist about when you should take the missed dose.
 
Some medications should be taken at least two hours before or six hours after sodium picosulfate/magnesium oxide/anhydrous citric acid, as they could potentially bind to the magnesium in this product. These medications include many antibiotics, iron supplements, digoxin, penicillamine, and chlorpromazine.
