I had a colonoscopy today 27/104/11. I took Moviprep following the instructions rigidly to the minute. It was utterly useless it did not have the desired effect and my bowel was half emptied.

I have to go over the whole procedure again in ... Show Full Comment

Moviprep caused SEVERE ABDOMINAL PAIN AND DISTENSION. Did not produce a BM for 12 hours. TORTURE. Colonoscopy cancelled. Think twice about using this product. DOCTOR ADMITTED MOVIPREP DOES NOT ALWAYS WORK. TORTURE. THINK TWICE BEFORE USING.

As other reviewers have stated, it does not taste good. I wondeered if I could keep it down. On the second batch, I chased each swallow with something I liked on my "allowable" list. I used coffee. MUCH improved. You will need to be near the toilet for four or five hours after a dose. Overall, not so bad.

After surviving cancer, pulmonary embolisms and a severe colon infection last year, it is now time for my colonoscopy. I was given this MoviPrep to take. 1 liter last night and 1 liter this morning.

I started vomiting profoun ... Show Full Comment
