Keep solution refrigerated when reconstituted, however chilled solution is not recommended for infants.
The reconstituted solution should be used within 48 hours - discard unused portion.
The first bowel movement usually occurs approximately 1 hour after you start drinking the solution. Continue to drink until the watery stool is clear and free of solid matter. This usually requires at least 3 liters. Any unused portion should be discarded.
Drink one 8 oz glass every 10 minutes. Rapid drinking of each portion is better than drinking small amounts continuously. The first bowel movement should begin approximately 1 hour after the start and you will still have loose bowels for about 1-2 hours after you finish drinking the solution.
