Taking moviprep, which I have affectionately dubbed colon-blow, and on a clear liquid diet for 24 hours in preparation for a colonoscopy tomorrow and I have no doubts that by 9:30 tomorrow my colon will be in ship shape for inspection! I have not had a bad experience at all, the flavor leaves a lot to be desired (tastes like saltwater gatorade mixed with nasty) But no cramping, pain, vomiting or r ... Show Full Comment
