    CLENPIQ is by far the worst medication I have ever taken!! The taste is pungent, acidic, and still penetrable while holding my nose! I could not swallow once without gagging! Then there is an after taste that lingers for many hours. It feel like is has infiltrated your gums, tongue, and mucus membranes. The only decent thing I have to say is that it was effective. With all the strides in medici ... Show Full Comment

    Diagnostic colonoscopy was scheduled for a Monday morning. I did low fiber diet from Friday noon then clear liquids on Sunday. I took 1 bottle at 6p, drank it cold with a straw. Taste was pretty awful but I chugged it all at once, drank a bottle of water then brushed my teeth. By midnight my stool was very clear so I drank only half of the remaining bottle and more water. Output was gentle but con ... Show Full Comment

    Was scheduled for colonscopy 11/1. Followed the directions, and made it through the 1st bottle for a split dose method. Thought... oh such a little bottle that this will be easy. But within 2 hours of that bottle and the accompanying water and other fluids, was so dizzy about to pass out. Then started vomiting and unable to drink another sip of anything and keep it down. On call overnight doc ... Show Full Comment

    First of all I would like to say that I am vegetarian, on the third day before the procedure, I had 3 cherry tomatoes and two table spoons of very-well cook lentils. You can guess the rest, it was a big mistake. The doctor instructions: do NOT take water six hours before the procedure. Clenpiq instructions no water two hours before the procedure. I decided to drink one small cup of water three ho ... Show Full Comment

    Everyone reacts differently. I personally found it easy to drink the small bottle, harder to drink all the water immediately after. Instantly felt chilled and flu-like with first dose. Took about an hour and a half to kick in but then totally cleared me out. Second dose didn’t make me as ill. Definitely did a thorough job and was not as difficult as I feared it would be.
