I took the split dosage; 1st round then 2nd round 5 hours later. Everything went fine. Follow the instructions EXACTLY and you should be OK too. The taste is as everyone says; very salty lemon drops.

I am not usually one to complain nor do I encourage my personal experiences to compromise those of others. However, my wife and I recently were prescribed MoviPrep for colonoscopies that were to take place about 3 weeks apart.
