It does what it is supposed to do--clean your bowels. The instructions are easy to follow. BE SURE TO CHILL! My only complaint is that it tastes a bit like lemon Pledge. I wasn't nearly as uncomfortable as I thought I'd be.

Comment:
I took Movi-Prep for a colonoscopy. It tasted like salted lemonade. The taste was not nearly as bad as other people have said. I drank 2 quarts, starting at 6:00PM the evening before colonoscopy. The only drawback is taking this medication is like getting enemas. Be prepared for 4 or 5 long stays on the throne. Make sure you open the window, and have the Oust. By midnight, I was finished my ... Show Full Comment

I had no problems with the MoviPrep. Just make sure you get the prep really cold and drink it from a cold glass. It really does not taste that bad (my opinion).

I didn't have any cramps and thought it was much better than drinking a whole gallon of prep. ... Show Full Comment

The thing I feared worst about a colonoscopy was the prep. The horrors that I heard, well, they just didn't happen. This stuff did not taste bad at all. (I recommend getting it really cold before drinking.) Took it 1pm and 5pm and by 2:30 or so, the first one started working. Nothing horrible, no pain, no cramps. Nothing catastrophic. Followed it w/ lemon lime gatorade. By 4:30pm, I was flushe ... Show Full Comment

No problems for me. Had to take the split dose regimen - one in the evening, and one in the morning for a 12:30 colonoscopy. I drank lots of Gatorade and Apple Juice all day before I started prepping. I refrigerated the Moviprep the night before and drank 4 8oz glasses 15 minutes apart. The liquid didn't taste bad - it was cold and I chugged it. I passed lots of watery stool, but ... Show Full Comment
