Absolutely horrid. I have the split dose option and started tonight. Took me over 2 hours to get through the one dose tonight because I gagged/nearly vomitted with every sip. How on earth has no one come up with a better option? Plus it cost me $80+ out-of-pocket (with insurance) for this disgusting mix that makes me nearly vomit just thinking about it. I have no idea how I'll get through it a ... Show Full Comment

Cleaned me out, perhaps too well, I feel very ill. Perhaps that is the desired result for the procedure, but I question the healthfulness of this method. It is only my second colonoscopy, but I don't remember any negative issues 13 years ago. This liquid is a whole different story. Forcing down this chemical concoction is too high a price to pay for a pretty picture of my innards. It is as if ... Show Full Comment

During the time I was taking the prep I experienced nausea and had terrible cramps. I also had chills. Six months later, if I take a laxative I still have cramps and nausea. I wonder if this will ever stop. I will never take this med. again.

Followed instructions from doctor before drinking this.Began at 6pm. The taste wasn't really bad for me--I love lemon. After drinking the first 16 oz. I developed a slight headache. I continued with the first round of Moviprep then drank 16 oz. of grape juice. Shortly after, my vision was blurry. Also had slight dizziness. I had no movements and it was 10pm. I called the doctor on call and he ... Show Full Comment

This prep made me deathly ill. I couldn't finish either one of the doses in full because before I knew it, I was uncontrollably projectile vomiting. It made me nauseous, freezing cold to where I couldn't get warm, and I didn't get one wink of sleep the night I started the prep due to the side effects. I will NEVER use this med again!!!!!!!
