While this product worked very well and I was completely clear after the 1st full dose it was very nasty tasting. I felt like I was drinking a salt shaker. I managed to only get through half of the 2nd dose. Throughout both doses I noticed I was very chilled to the point of shivering and my face was ice cold. I also kept feeling like I had to sneeze but it never materialized. It also gave me a ... Show Full Comment

Colonoscopy prep. Not nearly as bad for me as some below describe. Two session prep. Mixed the stuff in advance, added one packet of Crystal Light lemonade mix and about two teaspoons of lemon juice, then chilled. Tastes a lot like lemon lime Gatorade, with some salt added, but a bit slimey consistency. Tried several ways of drinking and ended up doing this. Drank from a glass, no straw. Be ...

62YOM. This is my 4th scope. 1st was Moviprep one stage, started at 4 and was fast asleep by 11pm. Dr and pics was perfectly cleaned out. Next Gi told me to use Miralax/Ducolax, still dirty in morning, had to add magnesium citrate to get clean. 3rd was Spurprep which was a very bad experience. 4th was Moviprep two stage, easy and effective. The trick for me using Moviprep is to mix and ref ... Show Full Comment

I'm a 58 YOF, 190 lbs, going for my 2nd colonoscopy. After hating my previous experience with Golytly, I opted for MoviPrep this time. Big mistake. Ate very lightly Sunday, then clear liquids Monday. Started 1st dose at 6p. I mixed it with Gatorade and refrigerated it, but it still made me gag. Began kicking about an hour later. Did 2nd round at 10p but only managed to get down half. Bo ...

Comment:
I have had several colonoscopies in the past, but never used a prep which caused more misery than MoviPrep. Not only did it taste horrible, but it caused extremely painful cramps and nausea. It also failed to clean out my system, so while already in pain and nauseous, I had to use an enema to get things "moving." I would not recommend this product to ANYONE and plan to urge my doctor not ... Show Full Comment
