It was the worse experience, I have a sensitive body and because I ate very little I was clean for the colonoscopy. The sad things is that I also had an endoscopy (the Dr insisted although I had one the previous year) and what happened is that I was fine going in and I ended having the most terrible gastritis which I believe was caused by the caustic effects of this product. Its been months and ... Show Full Comment

This was the worst prep I have ever experienced, but keep in mind everyone is different. I have other drug allergies and sensitivities. This was horrific. I had to be put on IV fluids and anti nausea medication to stabilize before they could decide if I could even have the procedure after all that. I live life by the rules, eat healthy, exercise and followed the directions. It's not like I was ... Show Full 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!

The moviprep was the most difficult thing I have ever had to eat or drink. I would rather have not eaten for 3 or 4 days instead. I weigh very little so 8 glasses was almost impossible for me to swallow and I found the taste disgusting . I had a bad headache the next day just before my examination and had to take painkillers without food on an empty stomach . A week or so later my stomach doesn ... Show Full Comment

I spent an hour reading these reviews & scared myself to death about taking MoviPrep for an upcoming colonoscopy. Because of all the horror stories I looked at some videos made by doctors and clinics in YouTube about the prep and they eased my concerns. I ate lightly two days before, drink only clear liquids the day before and began using MoviPrep at 4:30 PM the day before. I mixed it accordin ... Show Full Comment
