I followed all MoviPrep instructions to a "T" except one bowl of fruit 2 nights before. The taste of MoviPrep (where did they get that name??) was ghastly - a mix of bitter lime and biodiesel. I was surprised it didn't take effect until the middle of the night. I was also surprised that it didn't seem to completely finish its job by the time of my 7 am appointment. My nurse a ...

This was the worst tasting experience I have ever had. Couldn't even finish first container. No bowel movement occurred. I was bloated and gassy after taking it and the next day. Fasted for nothing and had to postpone my colonoscopy. Very disappointed!!!

Clear liquids only all day on prep day. First MoviPrep mixture at 5:00p.m. prep day. Second mixture at 5:00a.m. day of procedure. I gagged, choked, throat muscles ached,inhaled the nasty stuff, was nauseated and exhausted by the time I w ... Show Full Comment

Horrible experience! Wished I read these reviews before buying this disgusting drink. Went through half of the first bottle before vomiting. Drank a lot of water instead to help flush my stool out. Couldn't drink the second bottle at all. With my wieght being 116 lbs, one bottle was sufficient. In the morning, I was so nauseous that I kept vomiting every 15 minutes to the hospital before my co ... Show Full Comment
