I am not usually one to complain nor do I encourage my personal experiences to compromise those of others.

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.

Comment:
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.
