I'm only half way through my MoviPrep, but figured once my procedure is over tomorrow, I never want to think about it again! The drink itself is like salty lemon aide, but I chugged 8 oz down at a time. That wasn't the worse part. I've read reviews that some have started needing the bathroom after 1-2 hours of finishing their liter - not me! About 30 minutes into it, while outside ... Show Full Comment

While it was easy to mix and follow drinking directions, the synthetic sweetener was overpowering and made me nauseous.

Its been months and ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Have had several colonoscopies over the years, and this was by far the worst tasting junk I have ever taken. It did not clean me out thoroughly (according to doctor). I will probably never have a lemon popsicle or lemon sherbet again in this lifetime! Doctor said he's had many complaints and next time will prescribe the grape-taste stuff. Yuk, Yuk, Yuk!
