Sodium Phosphate (oral)

Sodium phosphate is prescribed to patients who are undergoing colonoscopic examinations. Patients must take tablets the night before and the morning of the colonoscopy to induce diarrhea. This ensures that the colon walls are clear so that doctors can examine the colon for cancer or other abnormalities.
