After taking GoLYTEly before a colonoscopy, my blood pressure shot up all of a sudden (never had a problem with this before). My doctor couldn't explain why all of a sudden my blood pressure went up, when the only change in my routine was taking this.
GoLYTELY does not cause the blood pressure to shoot up, this side effect has not been documented or reported.
However, the most common reactions to GoLYTELY, occurring in up to 50 percent of people, include: Nausea; A feeling of abdominal (stomach) fullness; Stomach bloating.
Other common side effects may include: Stomach cramping; Vomiting; Anal irritation.
These problems usually only last for a short time.
Please take care, best wishes,maybe you could try seeking a second opinion.
