    3rd colonoscopy - best experience ever. Pills worked perfectly - no side effects except for slight headache. Stopped eating solids after lite lunch on Monday. Chicken broth Monday night, hot tea Tuesday morning, popsicle mid-morning, chicken broth lunch and dinner. Lots and lots of liquids. Started with 4 pills at 5PM Tuesday with 8 oz. apple juice, every 15 minutes the same until 20th pill ... Show Full Comment

    So far so good. Just started the prep. My instructions were to take the first doses at 3, and the final doses at 6. they said I could start earlier so I started at 2....I am hoping to be done and able to sleep fairly well. The comments here have been so helpful, thanks.

    I was quite stressed with having to go through this process but after taking the pills its not so bad. Took the first 20, I broke them in half so it was easier to swallow. When I got #17 I was already going to the bathroom! lol No biggies though.No nausea or vomiting throughout the whole process and I have a sensitive stomach as I have GERD. I started the process at 2p. I went to the bathroom seve ... Show Full Comment

    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. I was instructed to take Osmoprep at 5:00 pm, 4 tablets every 15 min (total of 20) the day before the colonoscopy and then 4 tablets every 15 min (total of 12) 3-5 hours before procedure. The first evening, about 2 hours after taking the last dose, I vomite ... Show Full Comment
