Comment:
I am writing this on behalf of my husband who used MoviPrep Oral to prep for a colonoscopy. First you can mix it up, up to 24 hours before consumption and store in the refrigerator. Refrigeration made it more palatable. My husband took his first dose and made the mistake of being 15 steps away from the bathroom. Big mistake. He didn't make it, and guess who had to clean up the mess (me). ... Show Full Comment

About 2 hours after taking the first pack I began to empty my bowels. At the same time I experienced a terrible pain through my abdomen that would not subside. I became violently ill with sweating, shaking and tingling hands, and vomited multiple times. It took quite some time to recover, the abdominal pain was the last symptom to ease. I don't think anyone should take this while alone.

I read some of the reviews, so I was a little apprehensive. The Movi was very easy to mix and use. The taste is god awful! Of all the flavors they could add to make it more palatable, why Pledge furniture polish? I found it best to just chug each dose straight down, then rinse and gargle with water. As for the results. After taking the first 3 servings I was beginning to think I might be immune to ... Show Full Comment

5:30pm 7/30/14 after mixing the MoviPrep solution with luke warm water and setting in the fridge for 6 hours I had my first 1/4 liter.

The taste and smell of the solution was causing me to gag with each terrible sip. Got the last of the 2nd 1/4 liter down, but the l ... Show Full Comment
