A little hard swallowing pills but one at a time is not too bad. I took meds at 5:00 and 10:00 p.m. - the only downside is that I did not stop going to the bathroom all night. Literally all night. No cramps, pain, nausea, headache just bathroom all night long. Almost didnt make it to bathroom at two in morning after second dose. But doc said good job - clean colon.

I have used this prep in the past without any issues. I can not tolerate the gallon prep or Miralax preps without vomiting everything back up.

The first evening, about 2 hours after taking the last dose, I vomite ... Show Full Comment

The pills were mostly tasteless and easy to swallow one at a time. It too ... Show Full Comment

I am having a colonoscopy tomorrow and will be using the Osmoprep oral. I used it last year with no side effects at all. The previous year I had the Gatorade and ducolax and got nausea and light headedness. The times the doctor specifies start at 5:00Pm and every 15 minutes until 7 doses are taken. One last dose is taken at 9:00PM. Gordon

Comment:
This is the 4 th time I have used Osmoprep for my colonoscopy . I have had good success with it, although I do gag with the pills at times... I recently was told to try this "trick" to help with swallowing them, and thought I would pass it along . Before you take the pill, lick the tip of you finger and dip it in "lemonade powder" ( the kind you use to mix with water) place thi ... Show Full Comment
