I dreaded this prep due to hearing horror stories but overall it wasn't that bad. I was given Moviprep because no pharmacies in my area had the Half-lytely the doc originally ordered. Anyway, I chased each nasty dose w/ ginger ale and sucked on green sucker. Stay close to bathroom...first wave hit me and you know the rest...:-) And the colonoscopy itself was a breeze. I don't dread the ... Show Full Comment

Movi says yoy have to drink less luquid. This is wrong because you have to drink 32 oz. of movi prep plus 64 oz. of water in 1 hour.Then at 4am I have to repeat this procedure for a total of 192 ounces( 1.5 Gallons). Overall a bad idea.

This is the most wretched think I have ever had to drink!!! I am sorry that I did not do my research before getting this as prescribed by the doctor. I took a different product a couple years ago that was much better-I believe a fleet product. At $70 a treatment the phar cos much be dining these prescribing doctors well!!!

Prepped for a Colonscopy - in the past, I've used other prep methods ... must say - MoviPrep is pretty bad! Medicine and science must get better than this if they want folks to embrace colonscopies!

I must be one of the lucky ones with no real problems using this. I followed all the instructions. I did use a straw to drink it which I thought was wonderful. I put it far back in my mouth so I hardly had to taste it. Someone also suggested sucking on a jolly rancher in between drinks. I used a green apple one and it helped. Keep the drink very cold.
