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). Kinda like a lemon drink but a little salty. I chugged the 8 ounce portions and was visiting the bathroom half way through my first liter. 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.

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

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.
