Comment:
Somewhere I read that after first dose of MoviPrep, the first bowel movement should occur about an hour later. Hmm. Mine came in 15 minutes, and I didn't get off the toilet for about eight hours. I tasted like anitfreeze, and made me nauseus. Never vomited, but probably would have felt better if I had. I followed the directions exactly as written, including three days of soft, low residue food ... Show Full Comment

I took this as directed for colonoscopy prep. It tasted bad but that was not the problem: Within 30 minutes of the first dose, I started pooping brown liquid. Never passed any solid stool at al throughout the whole process. The brown liquid kept coming for 7 hours, accompanied by heavy cramps, so no sleep. I honestly thought I might die. Then I had the procedure. They did it even though my colon w ... Show Full Comment

I had a colonoscopy completed this month and I was very reluctant to do it. I had to fast the day before and I was given Moviprep. It was not difficult to drink and it worked pretty quick after drinking it. Overall the experience was not bad. I suggest following the directions exactly.

Comment:
Had a colonoscopy in July 2015. Took the prep as recommended. It was like drinking drano, but I did get it all down. After changing my diet for 4 days, drinking only liquids for 3 days, and trying to get that dreadful drink down, It didn't work... Now I have to go threw another colonoscopy next year...Going to try something, anything else, that cost less and taste better...what a waste.....

Comment:
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
