  • Subjects with impaired consciousness that predisposes them to pulmonary aspiration.
  • Subjects who are undergoing colonoscopy for foreign body removal and decompression
  • Subjects with known difficulties for swallowing tablets
  • Subjects with pre-existing electrolyte disturbances, such as dehydration, or those secondary to the use of diuretics.
  • Subjects who are taking drugs that may affect electrolyte levels with the exception of routine diuretics.
  • Subjects with known clinically significant electrolyte abnormalities such as hypernatremia, hyperphosphatemia, hypokalemia, or hypocalcemia
  • Subjects who are pregnant or lactating, or intending to become pregnant during the study.
  • Subjects of childbearing potential who refuse a pregnancy test.
  • Subjects who are allergic to any preparation components
  • Subjects who, in the opinion of the investigator, should not be included in the study for any reason, including inability to follow study procedures.
  • Subjects who have participated in an investigational clinical, surgical, drug, or device study within the past 30 days.
  • Any condition in parent/guardian associated with poor subject compliance (e.g., substance abuse); inability of parent/guardian to return for scheduled visits with their child.
