Pharmachologic effect

Picoprep contains sodium picosulphate, which has a local laxative effect in the large intestine, and magnesium citrate, which is formed from citric acid and magnesium oxide when the powder dissolves and acts as an osmotic laxative, retaining water in the large intestine. Purification of the intestine is due to a powerful "washout" effect in combination with stimulation of peristalsis, which is necessary for carrying out X-ray or endoscopic (colonoscopy) studies and surgical manipulations.

Side effects of Picoprep

The incidence of side effects is shown in accordance with the following scale:
Often (> 1/100 to <1/10)
Rarely (> 1/1000 to <1/100)
Single cases.
The immune system: rarely - anaphylactic reactions, hypersensitivity.
Metabolism: rarely - hyponatremia, hypokalemia.
Nervous system: often - a headache; rarely - epilepsy, a large seizure (without hyponatremia), convulsions, confusion.
Gastrointestinal tract: often - nausea, procalgia; rarely - vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain; isolated cases - transitory aphthoid ileo-intestinal ulcers.
Skin and subcutaneous tissues: rarely - rash (including erythematous and maculopapular), hives, itching, purpura.
Overdose of Picoprep can lead to profuse diarrhea and, as a consequence, to dehydration. Measures should be taken to restore the water-electrolyte balance.

Special instructions for Picoprep

Picoprep is not intended to be used as a regular laxative.
In patients with signs of hyponatremia, urgent measures should be taken to restore the water-electrolyte balance.
The drug contains potassium hydrogen carbonate, which should be taken into account in patients on a diet with a low potassium content.
The composition of the orange flavor of Picoprep includes lactose. Therefore, patients with lactose intolerance, Lappease lactase deficiency, or glucose-galactose malabsorption, this drug is not recommended.
In patients with a significant decrease in renal function, the magnesium content of the plasma may increase. Such patients should prescribe another drug.
Insufficient intake of water and electrolytes can cause a clinically significant deficiency of these components, especially in weakened patients.
The period of preparation for bowel cleansing should not exceed 24 hours, a longer period increases the risk of disturbance of the water-electrolyte balance.
Against the background of taking other powdery laxatives, Picoprep's effectiveness is reduced.

Impact on the ability to drive vehicles and manage mechanisms

In connection with the possibility of developing side effects from the nervous system, care should be taken when driving vehicles and engaging in other potentially dangerous activities that require increased concentration and speed of psychomotor reactions.


Patients taking a series of oral drugs for permanent use (antiepileptic, hypoglycemic drugs, oral contraceptives, antibiotics) should be careful when applying Picoprep, tk. he can change the absorption of these drugs and thus affect their effects. For example, there are cases of epileptic seizures in connection with the use of Picoprep against the background of previously compensated epilepsy with epilepsy.
Simultaneous administration of Picoprep with diuretics, corticosteroids or cardiac glycosides increases the risk of hypokalemia.
Simultaneous reception with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), as well as with drugs that can cause the syndrome of inadequate secretion of the antidiuretic hormone or salt-losing syndrome (eg, tricyclic antidepressants, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, antipsychotics and carbamazepine) increases the risk of water-electrolyte balance disruption.
